& # 39; GET THIS WOMAN OUT OF OFFICE & # 39 ;, tweeted right-wing commentator Terrence Williams. & # 39; Ilhan Omar partyed on the 9/11 birthday because she believes that & # 39; some people have just done something & # 39;. & # 39; (Sic)

Trump mocked the video and wrote that Omar, & a member of AOC Plus 3, will win us the Great State of Minnesota. & # 39; The president also called her & # 39; (t) he new face of the Democratic Party! & # 39;

The video images of Omar dance to a song by R&B artist Lizzo was recorded on Friday evening, September 13, at a party organized by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.

Williams & # 39; reference to & # 39; Some People & # 39; was a nod to a long-lasting public relations crisis caused by Omar & # 39; s comments in March during a Council on American-Islamic Relations event.

She then said that the & # 39; group was established after 9/11 because they acknowledged that some people were doing something and that we were all starting to lose access to our civil liberties & # 39 ;.

Conservatives have said that Omar has minimized the impact of 9/11, suggesting that she is sympathetic to the attackers.

A spokesperson for the first-year congresswoman did not respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.

The song on which Omar and other lawmakers danced on the Friday night video, called & # 39; Truth Hurts & # 39 ;, is about a woman who is confused by a man who decides to stay in a relationship with his lover in the longer term.

The Black Caucus Foundation congress was part of an annual & # 39; CBC Week & # 39; which culminated in an award ceremony on Saturday evening

& # 39; Hey, I'm glad you're back with your dick, & # 39; she sings. & # 39; I mean, who would hide this? I will never, never, never, ever, ever be your side chick. & # 39;

According to his wife's divorce applications, Omar has had an illegal affair with a married man, political adviser Tim Mynett.

Omar has denied the relationship. She and her husband broke up in March.

The video in the center of Trump & # 39; s latest Twitter misstep is from Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, who is dancing her on the hit & # 39; Truth Hurts & # 39; of the singer during an event during the Congressional Black Caucus week.

Williams first became known when Trump retold his conspiracy theory video suggesting that pedophile Jeffrey Epstein did not commit suicide in prison, but was killed by someone trying to ensure that & # 39; information does not come out & # 39 ;, what former President Bill Clinton might imply.

Trump caught fire after retelling an unfounded claim from Williams in August that Bill Clinton was involved in the death of Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in a cell in Manhattan

& # 39; Died from SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH? Hell yes! Why is that & # 39 ;, Williams had written. & # 39; #JefferyEpstein had information about Bill Clinton and now he is dead. I see #TrumpBodyCount trending, but we know who did this! & # 39;

He further claims that Jeffrey Epstein had information about the Clintons and that they were somehow responsible for his death, so that "information did not come out." Williams said that Epstein's death had been predicted prior to his suicide.

The president defended his decision to reinforce Williams' claims and told reporters at the time: & # 39; That was a retweet, it wasn't mine. & # 39;

However, Trump regarded Williams as a reliable source. & # 39; He is a man with half a million followers. The retweet was from someone who is a highly respected conservative expert, so I think it was good, & he said.
