Father of NY Firefighter Killed on 9/11 Shreds Omar “Trump is 100% RIGHT”

The father of a NYC firefighter who was killed during 9-11 has a message for embattled freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar.

The Daily Mail reported that the father of a New York firefighter who died on 9/11 has again demanded an apology from Rep. Ilhan Omar after she described the terrorist attacks as ‘some people did something’.

Jim Riches, whose son Jimmy was one of around 3,000 Americans killed during the attack in New York City, made the comments at the annual GOP gala in Manhattan on Tuesday evening.

‘She [Ilhan Omar] owes us an apology and we are going to get it,’ he said, adding that President Trump was ‘100 per cent right’ for tweeting a soundbite of Omar’s comments interwoven with footage from 9/11.

Riches also said that he supports a video tweeted by President Donald Trump. The video, which splices Omar’s speech with harrowing footage of the 9/11 attacks, went viral late last week.

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s downplaying of the Sept. 11 attacks as “some people did something” upset and angered many Americans, but likely none more than Jim Riches.

Riches, the father of a heroic firefighter who lost his life in the collapse of the North Tower of the World Trade Center, is now demanding Omar apologize for her flippant dismissal of the deadliest terror attack in U.S. history.

Speaking Tuesday at an annual GOP gala in Manhattan, Riches tore into the congresswoman and those other lawmakers who refused to condemn her, according to the New York Post.

He was particularly scornful of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. Both are New York Democrats.

“They can’t deal with reality — Schumer, Nadler, all the New York politicians were quiet,” Riches said. “They didn’t say one thing.”

“She owes us an apology,” Riches said. “And we are going to get it.”

Riches also said that he supports a video tweeted by President Donald Trump. The video, which splices Omar’s speech with harrowing footage of the 9/11 attacks, went viral late last week.

“He told it like it was. That is what happened that day,” Riches said, according to the Post. “Donald Trump is 100 percent right.”

And if anyone knows about the mind-numbing carnage of that day, it’s Jim Riches.
