Members of The Squad, a group of four unpopular freshman lawmakers, appear to be taking themselves a tad too seriously these days.
As the political walls crumble in, and their approval ratings tumble – thanks to blunders, scandals, and a parade of missteps – the politically-powerless Squad is straining to remain relevant.
Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who once shouted “impeach the mother f**ker,” during a campaign speaking engagement, believes that she’s now targeted because President Trump is using her to cover up his presidential failures.
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib said in a new interview that President Donald Trump criticizes her alleged anti-Semitism because he has “failed” as president.
Speaking with MLive, Tlaib said that President Trump’s attacks on her were his “way of distracting from the fact that he’s failed as a president.”
She also said that Trump’s comments were “such absurdity” and “very painful.”
President Trump has repeatedly called out the Michigan congresswoman for her rhetoric on Israel and Jewish people. In May, he accused her of having “tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people.”
Earlier this month, the president again claimed that Tlaib, along with Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar hate Jewish people.
“They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” he said.
