President Donald Trump delivered a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition on Saturday. During his remarks he took the opportunity to mock Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the Congresswoman who believes people hold a dual allegiance to the United States and Israel if they are pro-Israel.
"And a special thanks to Rep. Omar of Minnesota. Oh, oh -- oh, I forgot. She doesn't like Israel, I forgot. I'm so sorry. Oh," Trump mocks. "No she doesn't like Israel, does she?"

Of course, Democrats were quick to slam Trump for his comments.
Shame on everyone at the Republican Jewish Coalition event who applauded and cheered Trump's rhetoric here. White nationalists in the U.S. said the same then about Jews fleeing the Nazis in the 1930s. https://t.co/3W8hpjaPcF— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) April 6, 2019
Right after a MAGA voter sent bombs to CNN & Dems, Trump attacked both.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) April 6, 2019
Right after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, Trump pushed Soros conspiracy that incited it.
Right after a MAGA voter threatened to kill Ilhan Omar, Trump smeared her to the Republican Jewish Coalition.
Here's the President of the United States mocking Rep. Ilhan Omar the day after a man who threatened to "shoot her in the skull" was arrested simply because he thinks its what the Republican Jewish Coalition want to hear.— Amee Vanderpool (@girlsreallyrule) April 6, 2019

Less than 24 hours after the feds arrested a man for threatening to kill Rep. Ilhan Omar, the president of the United States attacked her, again, in his “speech”— Adam Parkhomenko (@AdamParkhomenko) April 6, 2019
For some reason, Democrats seem to think that if anyone criticizes Rep. Omar that they're suddenly advocating for violence against her. They seem to think Trump saying Omar doesn't like Israel is condoning what death threats she received on Friday. But it doesn't.
It is possible to slam Omar for her anti-Semitic tropes. It is possible to condemn someone sending her death threats because they disagree with her policies.
Why is it so hard for Democrats to see that not everything is as black and white as they like to make it?
