She really thought this would work…
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has claimed that President Trump is “scared” of her and her fellow “Squad” members in the wake of her canceled trip to Israel.
“It’s been very clear to me, especially this last week, that he’s scared of us,” Tlaib said in an interview. “He’s afraid of women of color … because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda.”
“He’s afraid because we have a real agenda for the American people,” she said.
Trump has frequently scrapped with the four progressive congresswomen – Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass. – since they entered Congress.
“She said I’m her dream manifested,” Tlaib said of her grandmother at a press conference. “I’m her free bird so why would I come back and be caged and bow down?”
Trump suggested the moment was not genuine.
Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!
