Video Surfaces of Stark Raving Mad Tlaib Causing Raucous, Being Dragged Out of Trump Event in 2016; Says Act was ‘Patriotic,’ ‘Courageous’

  • Video showing progressive Rep. Rashida Tlaib screaming at a President Trump event and being dragged out by security in 2016 has gone viral. The incident happened at the Detroit Economic Club where Trump was speaking in front of business leaders.
  • After causing a raucous, Tlaib was dragged out where she continued to yell at attendees, telling them “You guys are crazy!”
  • A man not seen on camera responded to Tlaib: “You’re an animal, get a job!”
  • After the interruption, Trump said: “I will say, the Bernie Sanders people had far more energy and spirit.”
  • At the time, Tlaib was “a public interest attorney at the Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice.” Before then, Tlaib was “a representative in the Michigan state legislature until she had to leave due to term limits, having lost a bid for state Senate.”
  • After the outburst, Tlaib spoke to the “Detroit Free Press,” and said she and “12 other brave women” confronted Trump because it “was the most patriotic and courageous act I could pursue.”
  • Tlaib said: “Well, I believe it is unbecoming of any American to not stand up to Trump’s hate-filled rhetoric and tactics.”
  • She also claimed that “she drew inspiration from bold women like Rosa Parks.”
  • Tlaib responded to criticism about her “acting in a way unbecoming of a former state legislator,” by saying “Trump did not deserve courteous behavior or social niceties.”
  • Tlaib said: “Courteous behavior can’t be reserved for someone who labels hardworking Mexican immigrants who have come to pursue the American Dream as ‘rapists.’ Social niceties are not in order for men who would turn away refugees fleeing for their lives based on their faith to have them suffer in camps.”
  • Tlaib added: “I watched as Trump supporters taunted the women who stood before me as they were aggressively and briskly led to the exits. I froze, feeling the anger around me that would make anyone tremble. Yet, I could only think of the unwavering love for my two sons to find the courage to do my own part.”
  • “I told Trump that ‘our children deserve better’ and I asked him to provide a better example to our kids. I implored him to read the U.S. Constitution,” Tlaib said.
  • When she was elected to Congress, Tlaib made the notorious statement about Trump that Democrats were going to “impeach the mother—-.”
  • Trump, Tlaib and three other progressive female lawmakers of color have been in the headlines extensively due to their very public feud that led to Trump being rebuked by the House for telling the minority women to “go back” to their home countries.
