Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) set the record straight with a New York Times writer who tried to accuse him of not supporting victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

Attempting to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Wajahat Ali accused Crenshaw of not sponsoring the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.

“Anytime a Republican says they are “patriots” ask them if they voted to fund the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund. You know who’s for it? Ilhan Omar. You know who hasn’t sponsored it? Dan Crenshaw.”

He continued: “@DanCrenshawTX, I hope you do the right thing. If not, why aren’t you?”

As many pointed out, a simple search would’ve revealed that Crenshaw is, in fact, a cosponsor. 

Crenshaw himself weighed with a mic-drop tweet, which included an x-ray of his skull showing the injury he sustained as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan when an IED blew up in his face.

The writer then deleted the tweet and followed up with a non-apology: 

"Thanks for letting me know. I'm glad you did and I have no problem correcting and updating the record with facts. Now try it with your comments about Ilhan Omar. You'll feel better. Sincerely, a fellow patriot."
