Osama bin Laden made the news earlier this week thanks to the president. Donald Trump re-tweeted a message that alleged the killing of the terrorist was a hoax. When asked about the message by Savannah Guthrie, the president said he was just “putting it out there,” and people could make their own decisions.
One would think Conservatives would like to get bin Laden out of the news. This wasn’t the case with Tucker Carlson. On Friday night, the Fox host had Noor bin Laden, the niece of the terrorist on his show. She told him about how hard it is being a Trump supporter.
The host asked about her comments about the president, “What a remarkable thing to say. I want to hear you say it, is that true? You’ve received more abuse for backing Donald Trump than for being the niece of Osama bin Laden?”
Noor bin Laden responded:
“As you can imagine, there are a few challenges that come with carrying this name, not least on a personal level being associated to a man whose values and beliefs are so diametrically opposed to my own, but yes. I find it quite interesting that in certain elitist circles I’ve encountered, I’ve faced so much arrogance and vulgarity for stating my beliefs, my support for the president.”
