Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dodged a reporter’s question about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) controversial comments regarding the 9/11 terrorist attacks during the House Democratic Caucus retreat’s closing press conference on Friday.

Earlier in the week, video surfaced of Omar referring to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as an incident in which “some people did something.” Omar has defended her remarks, despite the considerable backlash.

A reporter asked Pelosi for her reaction to Omar’s comments.

“I haven’t had the opportunity to speak with her” regarding “the nature of her comment, and as is my custom with my colleagues, I call them in before I call them out. So, I’ll look forward to hearing from her,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi added that she would have a comment after she speaks with Omar.
