Women's March leader Linda Sarsour, a staunch supporter of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, made CNN's list of "25 Influential American Muslims."
"CNN spent a year interviewing more than 100 American Muslims, asking who they think are the most influential Muslims in their fields," states a CNN article introducing the list. "We sought nominees for whom religion is part of their public identity, but other than that, we let American Muslims do most of the talking."
Sarsour made the list despite her support for Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite. Sarsour has a history of supporting radical figures like Farrakhan and Palestinian Rasmea Odeh. Sarsour once accused CNN anchor Jake Tapper of "joining the ranks of the alt right."
