Fox News Host Says He’s Not Comfortable Playing Full 9/11 Video Tweeted By President Trump

Fox News’ Chris Wallace said on Sunday that he was not comfortable playing the full video that President Trump tweeted of Ilhan Omar.

As reported by thehill.com
Fox News’ Chris Wallace said Sunday that he was not “comfortable” playing the entirety of a video President Trump tweeted Friday showing scenes from the 9/11 terrorist attack combined with remarks from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

Wallace began playing the video before cutting it off.

“Now, that was the only five seconds we felt comfortable showing,” Wallace told White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “It goes on in a much worse way, of her seeming, no question about it, to minimize 9/11, and then horrible images from 9/11.”

“Why is the president comfortable putting out horrible images like that,” Wallace asked. “Does he worry at all about inciting violence against Muslims in general, or Ilhan Omar in specific?”

“Certainly nothing could be further from the truth,” Sanders responded. “The president is not trying to incite violence against anybody.”

The audio in the video was taken from a speaking event Omar did at the the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) last month, where she said “some people did something” in reference to the 9/11 attacks before explaining that some used the attack to advocate for taking away civil liberties from Muslim Americans.

Trump’s video immediately drew backlash from Democrats who said it was inciting violence against Omar.

    Seriously Chris Wallace, Omar told a group of her supporters that it’s time to raise hell in America. If that is’nt inciting violence, I don’t know what is. You know Chris President Trump is’nt going to let her or anyone else disrespect the people who died and their families on that horrific day. your comments puzzle me, I’m not clear on where you stand.

    Chris Wallace has no problem making insulting remarks about Trump & Republicans but he wants to protect Muslims.That is like protecting the
    Japanese after they attacked Pearl Harbor.
    When countries or groups make cowardly attacks on innocent civilians they
    deserve the INFAMY that follows.Have you ever heard a Muslim apologize for
    killing 3000 people & creating 5000 orphans? They have just created a similar situation in Sri Lanka so they they are still at their evil deeds.
    I condemn such acts. Any decent American would.

    Somebody needs to go off on Wallace. He’s anti Trump to the core for no cause. He constantly tries to setup his quest that are Trump supporters. I quite watching Wallace. He’s too predictable.

    I thought it was just fine, and a good way to show how she was disrespecting our country and the drama that was brought on by 9/11. I feel she should apologize for the statement she made because it was disrespectful not just to the victims and family I’m not 11 but our whole nation.

    If this was showing Omar speaking rudely about 9/11—isn’t this what should have been cut out , then just say Omar made degrading remarks about 9/11, we do not think it would proper to show anymore of this. People are still, & will be for a long time, are still mourning their their loss of loved ones, plus many friends. Trump feels for all of the American loss in 3 areas of our great country. So—-why did you play her part ???? This was what her people did to this country. She is here talking like Obama did here &
    overseas, about demeaning America. Get it straight Chris Wallace!!!!!

    Omar’s comments are the problem, not President Trumps tweet. Quit defending those who disregard that horrible unprovoked attack on America.
