Rep. Dan Crenshaw unloaded on a New York Times reporter after the journalist accused the Veteran of not-supporting the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund; posting an image of an injury he sustained in combat that cost him his vision in one eye.

“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,” posted New York Times writer Wajahat Ali in a now-deleted tweet.

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

“Hey ‘journalist,’ maybe you should check your facts. I am a co-sponsor. Nice try though,” responded Crenshaw, posting the image of his injury sustained during combat.

“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,” said Ali.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw also unloaded on firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren last week; saying the far-left legislator was making “false promises” and “buying votes” with her massive new entitlement programs.

“Here’s the thing: When a candidate tells you about all the things that aren’t possible, about how political calculations come first, they’re telling you something very important. They’re telling you that they will not fight for you. Not me. I’m here to fight for our country,” posted Warren on social media.

“Another thing: When candidates promise voters that they’ll solve all their problems, it’s a lie, & it causes resentment. It’s buying votes with false promises. We’re free to pursue our own happiness. This doesn’t include giving our hard-earned money to your big gov programs,” fired-back Crenshaw.

Warren stopped by The View last week where she offered a series of “free” giveaways to American voters; including free childcare, student debt forgiveness, universal Pre-K education, healthcare, and more.
