Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) criticized Fox News host Jeanine Pirro Saturday after a man was arrested for threatening to kill Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) because she's Muslim.
What she's saying: "Understand when Jeanine Pirro goes on Fox + rallies people to think hijabs are threatening, it leads to this," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, referring to Pirro suggesting that Omar's use of a hijab means she follows sharia law. "Folks who imply we’re 'bad' for politics, the party, the country, etc. have no idea the threats we deal w/ because of that kind of language. Talk policy, not personal."
