Katie covered early Friday the fact that anti-semitic Democrat Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's dishonest PR stunt regarding her Israel trip, or as Rep. Tlaib would say 'Palestine,' was a complete set up from the beginning designed to make Israel look bad. "Yesterday after the Israeli government denied Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Tlaib from entering the country due to their advocacy for the BDS movement, Tlaib was offered a humanitarian exception to visit her grandmother," Katie wrote. It was revealed that Rep. Tlaib actually asked permission from the Israel government to visit her relatives and promised she would not speak about the BDS issues. But, after being granted permission, she refused to go because she claimed Israel was still somehow oppressing her with their restrictions. 

But even before this whole grandmother story came to fruition, Rep. Tlaib and Rep. Omar were crying crocodile tears about Israel's supposed cruelty. The two claimed it was pure bigotry which led to their "ban." But as Katie said Thursday night, this couldn't be the furthest thing from the truth. 

"Omar and Tlaib weren't denied entry to Israel because they are Muslim, they were denied entry because they are tied to terrorism, actively support the BDS movement and do not believe the country has the right to exist. It's not complicated. It is simple. They won't be visiting Israel for these reasons, but, they already knew that." 

Friday evening, it seems President Donald J. Trump would agree with Katie's analysis. 

"Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her 'grandmother.' As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel," Trump tweeted. "Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately!" 

Then, President Trump said, "Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!"

Trump also added, "Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!"
