Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota on Friday after the duo criticized him for taking offense to Omar's description of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

"Oh man", Ocasio-Cortez said when she heard the question.

Dan Crenshaw on social media Thursday afternoon; accusing the GOP lawmaker of "drumming resentment" towards Ilhan Omar.

The president of a college Republican group in OH has apologized for a fundraising email that referred to Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a "domestic terrorist".

"From fundraising emails labeling @AOC a domestic terrorist to the constant questioning of @IlhanMN's loyalty to and love of country, the right-wing is actively inciting violence against young progressive women of color in Congress", organizers with the Women's March posted on Twitter.

Omar made the controversial comment in a speech at a fundraiser last month for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a group founded by operatives of Hamas that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund the Palestinian terror group.

Asked by Fox News's Jesse Watters about AOC's tweet Saturday night, Crenshaw said it is "almost not worth responding to".

Crenshaw addressed criticism that the comments were taken out of context. "I don't think it's out of line to simply call that out and criticize it".

He called it the "height of partisanship" that both sides can't come together and agree that it was improper to "diminish" the attack on US soil. "That's not what happened and we should come together and take note of that".

"First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as 'some people who did something.' Unbelievable", Crenshaw tweeted.

"I am questioning how any American, let alone a United States Congresswoman, could downplay the 9/11 attacks", the Fox News host later tweeted.

"I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama with Obama's vice president", said Ocasio-Cortez. "@BernieSanders for recognizing these attacks clearly for what they are".

Barr noted in his letter to Ocasio-Cortez that Crenshaw served three tours of duty in Afghanistan. After multiple surgeries, Crenshaw retained sight in his left eye and went on to deploy two more times.
