House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., were publicly scolded Tuesday morning by the son of a woman who died in the 9/11 attack in New York 17 years ago for politicizing the event that killed nearly 3,000 people.

Nicholas Haros Jr. was one of several people who read the names of victims who perished in New York, and after saying he would never forget his mother Frances, who died in the tragedy, he demanded Democrats to stop what they’re doing.

“Stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Their lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them of us. It hurts.”

“This year, a representative of the House referred to our loss as just another incident,” he said after he finished reading off several names. That’s a reference to Pelosi, who noted the “9/11 incident” while talking to reporters in June.

“This year, a network commentator said the president’s performance in Helsinki was a traitorous act as was 9/11,” Haros added.

“And last week, a senator attacked a Supreme Court nominee and called him a racist for alleged comments after 9/11,” he said. That’s an apparent reference to Booker, who released emails that he said show Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh supported racial profiling, although the emails didn’t show Kavanaugh supporting that practice.

“Stop, stop,” Haros said after listing those examples. “Please, stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater.”

“They’re lives, sacrifices and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize us or us, it hurts,” he said

“To my mom and to all of you and your loved ones, never forget,” Haros concluded to applause.
