Far Left Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar issued a statement on Twitter about the Notre Dame Cathedral and not only failed to recognize it was a catholic church, but also failed to even say the church by name.
Instead, she recognized the Cathedral as “art and architecture.”
“Art and architecture have a unique ability to help us connect across our differences and bring people together in important ways. Thinking of the people of Paris and praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder.” she said on Twitter.

A pretty weak response to the devastating fire considering the cathedral is over 800 years old and has so much history attached to it. It is much more than “art and architecture.”
The radical Democratic congresswoman has been under fire in recent weeks for referring to the 9/11 attack as “some people did something.” This comment has received major backlash from the Right including President Trump.
Omar has not apologized for her downplay of the 9/11 attacks and seems to be doubling down on her comments.
On Friday, President Trump tweeted a video of Omar’s radical comments with video clips of the disastrous attacks on 9/11. Omar later responded to the video on Saturday where she responded with typical liberal talking points along with taking cheap shots at President Trump:
“This country was founded on the ideas of justice, of liberty, of the pursuit of happiness. But these core beliefs are under threat. Each and every day. We are under threat by an administration that would rather cage children than pass comprehensive immigration reform.”
“An administration that would rather give billionaires tax breaks than provide a little cushion for working people. An administration that would rather attack fellow Americans who are transgender and wear our country’s uniform than fight for equality and opportunity for all.”
