DINESH D'SOUZA: [Rep. Ilhan Omar's] statement left genuine doubt. If a reasonable person were listening to her, let's say from Mars with no background, they would not be able to tell if she was on the side of the victims of 9/11 or the perpetrators. There was a kind of ironic dismissal of what happened at 9/11, and so people were legitimately outraged about it. This is an assault on the country as a whole. So the suspicion of anti-Americanism seems to have some legitimate basis, and then look at the way the left is protecting her, circling the wagons --

CHRIS HAHN: Yeah.

D'SOUZA: -- and making it look like Trump was the bad guy even though nothing could be more accurate than a commercial that merely juxtaposes her actual words --

HAHN: What propagandists you are.

D'SOUZA: -- with what happened on 9/11.
