Top Democrat Jerrold Nadler has joined the ranks of party members circling the wagons to defend the indefensible remarks of controversial freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Nadler continues to abuse his power as the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to conduct a series of sham hearings like last week’s disgusting dog and pony show on the grossly exaggerated threat of white nationalism and as one of the party’s leaders, he is regularly afforded plenty of face time by the establishment media.
It was on Sunday when the corpulent New Yorker showed up on CNN’s “State Of The Union” with Jake Tapper to side with a woman who continues to make statements that many have called openly anti-Semitic to the point where even Nadler issued a statement rebuking her.
But that was in February and now that Democrats see an opportunity to attack President Trump and his supporters by playing up alleged death threats against Omar for her mindbogglingly dumb and insensitive comments about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Nadler is now firmly on her side.
Democrat @RepJerryNadler on Trump and 9/11: “He wasn’t President then, but Donald Trump actually took a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration…for 40 Wall Street. He stole $150,000 from some small businessperson who could’ve used it to help rehabilitate himself.” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/6z7asz8FzI

Via Fox News:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., slammed President Trump on Sunday for tweeting a video over the weekend that combined images of the 9/11 terror attacks with remarks by freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
Nadler said Trump has “no moral authority” to talk about the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil and called out Trump for reportedly taking a $150,000 government grant offered to small business owners in lower Manhattan following the 9/11 attacks.
“He wasn’t president then, but Donald Trump actually took a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration,” Nadler said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “He stole $150,000 from some small businessperson who could’ve used it to help rehabilitate himself.”
Nadler is totally devoid of shame and is himself exploiting the 9/11 attacks that impacted his own constituents in order to wage jihad against Trump who he has been an enemy of for decades.
At least part of Rep. Nadler’s animosity toward the leader of the free world may be due to nicknamed as “Fat Jerry” by Trump who coined the nickname back when he was still only a billionaire businessman.

So it has come to this; Trump’s use of Omar’s own words is being used by Democrats and their media toadies to falsely accuse him of inciting violence against the Somali-born activist whose own mouth and controversial tweets are the root of her problems yet she is the one being portrayed as the victim.
What’s next for Nadler? Investigations into thought crimes?
