Hours before the Notre Dame Cathedral fire with cable news channels moving into rolling coverage from Paris, Monday morning’s New Day featured numerous analysts, commentators, hosts, and journalists defending Minnesota Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar’s comments downplaying the September 11, 2001 attacks and blasting the President for “taking [her] words out of context” and causing her to grapple with death threats.

Going first to the 6:00 a.m. Eastern hour, fill-in co-host Poppy Harlow remarked to The Washington Post’s Toluse Olorunnipa that Trump (and thus her critics too) have “tak[en] Ilhan Omar’s words out of context here in the address she gave to CAIR and now the congresswoman says there have been increased threats to her safety — death threats.”
