On Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle, guests Asra Nomani, founder of the Muslim Reform Movement organization, and Qasim Rashid, a Democratic candidate for the Virginia State Senate, clashed several times in a heated segment that host Laura Ingraham tried to keep together as best she could.

Nomani said the way Omar referred to the attack on 9/11 was “completely callous and insensitive,” and added that it is “typical” of what she and other American Muslims hear “in our living rooms and in our mosques.”

She said “denial and obfuscation of tragedies” are something she and others hear all the time, but that with Rep. Omar and Democratic colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib.

Rashid began by confirming to Ingraham that 9/11 “was a terrorist attack” and then responded to Nomani.
