After Rashida Tlaib Breaks Down Crying, She Accidentally Lets Her Anti-Semitism Slip Out For All To See

Now that Congress is on summer break, we aren’t likely to see any more disgusting displays like this one from Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) until they return in the fall.
Remember this one? Where Tlaib broke down crying when she remembered how rich and greedy some people in America are?
Rep. Rashida Tlaib speaks at a hearing on prescription drug prices: "You have people actually dying before your eyes because we've allowed corporate greed -- we've allowed corporate greed to come before the people."

309 people are talking about this
Cry me a river.

Now it gets even worse for Tlaib. Because it turns out that even though Congress is on break, thanks to the 24-hour-news-cycle, you don’t have to wait long to watch Tlaib embarrass herself again. Just wait until her next interview, for instance.
That’s exactly what happened during a Sunday exchange with Jake Tapper, where Tlaib outdid herself yet again.
We’ve known for a long time about Tlaib’s rampant anti-Semitism, but what happened during this most recent interview is shocking even for her.
Because only a short time after crying on the House floor, it took her several minutes to actually admit that Jews have a right to live and Israel has a right to exist.
She actually had to be asked this question TWICE by Tapper before she reluctantly admitted that, yes, Israel has a right to exist.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) said the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement (BDS) is about criticizing the “racist policy” of Israel during a Sunday interview on CNN’s State of the Union.
“So you talk about the hate agenda and there is criticism of you from fellow Democrats, especially for your support for the BDS movement … It’s an anti-Israel movement,” host Jake Tapper asked.
“Well it’s criticizing the racist policy of Israel, and it’s a boycott,” Tlaib said.
Tlaib also had to be asked twice by Tapper about whether Israel has a right to exist.
“Do you think the Jewish people have the right to a state in the area where Israel exists now?” Tapper asked.
“I truly believe the state of Israel is—it exists, correct,” Tlaib replied.
“But understand, does it exist in the detriment of inequality for the Palestinian people, the detriment of not moving forward in a peaceful resolution. We’re never going to have peace, I truly believe, if separate but equal is the way they want to go. And I can tell you, I learned that from my African-American teachers in Detroit public schools who showed me what the pain of oppression looks like. We’re not going to have peace if we don’t understand that we are dehumanizing Palestinians every single day when we choose Israel over their rights,” Tlaib continued.
“Yes or no, does Israel have a right to exist?” Tapper pressed.
“Of course, but just like Palestinians have a right to exist, Palestinians also have a right to human rights. We can’t say one or the other. We have to say it in the same breath or we’re not going to actually have a peaceful resolution,” Tlaib said. …
Twitchy adds this about the exchange:
It’s insane that an elected official would ever say such things about Israel.
But then again, it’s insane that a woman like Rashida Tlaib was elected in the first place but we digress. …
Jake Tapper actually did a decent job here.
Kudos. …
The nerve of Israel wanting to be free and stuff.
Interesting note on the tweet below …
For whatever reason Twitter chose to ‘hide’ this reply on the thread.
Now why oh why would they do that?
Does that about sum it up for you?
