Osama bin Laden’s niece, Noor Bin Laden (who goes by Noor bin Ladin), took to Fox News on Friday to complain about the response she has received after publicly endorsing President Tweety McTreason in the 2020 presidential election.
Back in September, bin Ladin endorsed Trump and called his reelection “vital for the future of not only America, but Western civilization as a whole” and said he’s “shown he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike.”
In recent weeks, she wrote that she has received more backlash for being pro-Trump than for her last name, and on Friday night, she took to Fox News to talk about her endorsement and the backlash she received for it.
“What a remarkable thing to say,” Carlson said. “I want to hear you say it, is that true? You’ve received more abuse for backing Tweety McTreason than for being the niece of Osama bin Laden?”
Bin Ladin said, “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, that I faced so much arrogance and vulgarity for stating my beliefs, my support for the president and it’s unlike anything I’ve experience before,” bin Laden said.
Twitter users were left in a state of disbelief that Fox News would promote such an endorsement just days after the Taliban endorsed Trump for reelection. Her interview also comes days after Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory claiming Osama Bin Laden’s death was faked.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told CBS News in a phone interview, “We believe that Trump is going to win the upcoming election because he has proved himself a politician who accomplished all the major promises he had made to American people, although he might have missed some small things, but did accomplish the bigger promises, so it is possible that the U.S. people who experienced deceptions in the past will once again trust Trump for his decisive actions.”
I’m not sure the Bin Laden’s niece endorsement is going to move the needle here https://t.co/Kq7fpqPNOb

So Osama Bin Laden’s niece was brought on to Fox “news” last night to endorse Trump. Do they really think this will bring undecided voters over to their side? Good God… they are officially out of ideas.

Don’t forget the Taliban endorsement for Trump! He’d say we were being “unfair to him” if we didn’t count all his endorsements.
