Omar says "every single person who's brown and black" and "every single Muslim" has heard Trump's words from others before. She says she won't "dignify" his accusations with a detailed response, since every bigot "rejoices" when she is forced to answer to them.

Pressley says she doesn't want to spend too much time talking about Trump's words: "What we are focused on are the hateful policies that are draconian and oppressive and life-threatening and family-separating that is being rolled out by this administration every day."

Ocasio-Cortez says it's love of country that is behind their policy views. She ends: "We'll stay focused on our agenda, and we won't get caught slippin'. Because all of this is a distraction. It's a distraction from what's most important and our core values as American citizens."

Omar is presenting Trump as the un-American one. She says he's using this "blatantly racist" attack, and adopting the "agenda of white nationalists," to distract from his corruption and personal and policy failings.

Omar says Trump is violating his oath to the Constitution "and the core values we aspire to." She says, "As Martin Luther King said: all we say to America is, be true to what you say on paper."

Conservatives have criticized Omar for making light of someone's visceral reaction to al Qaeda and for (possibly) implying equivalence between al Qaeda and the United States. The president turned that into...Omar calling al Qaeda "wonderful" and "great," which never happened.

Omar argued that the media uses Arabic names out of a desire for sensationalism, to raise fears. She then laughed about how her professor in a college class on terrorism tensed when saying "al Qaeda" while not showing similar body language when saying "England" or "America." 2/3

The context in short: Omar said people find it easier to condemn the atrocities of non-state actors like al Qaeda or al-Shabaab than they do the crimes of their own governments. The PBS host mused about why Americans use these Arabic names rather than the less-scary English. 1/3

Trump falsely accused Ilhan Omar today of praising al Qaeda.

She never did.

He was referring to a 2013 clip circulating in conservative media. Even that clip doesn't include any praise.

I've fact-checked every word Trump has uttered for two full years. This is one of his most dishonest weeks in political life. He's lying about so many different things at once, and in big ways -- not exaggerating or stretching, completely making stuff up.

An interesting approach by CNN here - putting actual facts in a big box beside Sarah Sanders. Would be worth exploring this kind of Factual Pop-Up Video for Trump's own speeches.
