lhan Omar Calls Notre Dame Cathedral ‘Art and Architecture’

As the world watched in shock while Notre Dame Cathedral threatened to burn to the ground Monday, Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted half-hearted sympathy for its “art and architecture.”

“Art and architecture have a unique ability to help us connect across our differences and bring people together in important ways. Thinking of the people of Paris and praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder,” she tweeted. Critics noted that the Muslim Omar did not refer to the Cathedral by name or mention its significance to Western Christianity.
