President Trump isn't buying what Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was trying to sell during a press conference with her "sister" Ilhan Omar yesterday in Minnesota.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 20, 2019
During the press conference, Tlaib falsely accused Israel of barring her from the country, when in reality, they gave her an exception to visit her grandmother. In order to score political points, Tlaib rejected the opportunity after desperately asking for it in a letter to the Israeli government. She's been using her grandmother, who said she wants Allah to "ruin" President Trump, as a shield ever since. Here's part of her show:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib says she changed her mind on traveling to Israel with restrictions after speaking with her family, particularly her grandmother: "She said I'm her dream manifested, I'm her free bird, so why would I come back and be caged and bow down?" https://t.co/AtMFuaE5JJ pic.twitter.com/54Wj5axg7r— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) August 19, 2019
During the press conference, Tlaib and Omar repeatedly slammed Israel for alleged "human rights abuses" but failed, even once, to condemn Palestinian terrorism against Israelis and Americans. While they stated Israel is not a democracy (it is), they refused to call out the Palestinian Authority and Hamas for a lack of elections in the West Bank and Gaza since 2005 and 2006. They also failed to address this week's Palestinian Authority crackdown on LBGTQ activities in the West Bank.
Palestinian Authority bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank. What do Democrats have to say about this? Israel has one of the largest gay pride parades in the world. https://t.co/fd5VOIBDVR— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) August 19, 2019
Lastly, they're fundraising off of their stunt.
