Rashida Tlaib Gets Called Out On No Vote-min

Rep. Rashida Tlaib appeared on ABC’s ‘This Week’ on Sunday and faced a tough interview from Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz on the issue of the border and immigration.

Tlaib not only quintupled (or more) down on her fellow upstart Dem Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “concentration camps” rhetoric, but got noticeably agitated and flustered when faced with tough questions.
The interview (below) started with the two discussing an earlier appearance by the acting DHS secretary, and discussing the visits to detention centers that Tlaib, AOC, and other members of congress undertook last weeek.
Raddatz then asked about the concentration camps label:
“You were – you were – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, your colleague who was at the border with you compare the facilities to a concentration camp. Do you agree with that comparison?”
“Absolutely,” answered Tlaib unequivocally. “I mean there’s a number of experts that say this is – because it’s traumatic. I mean I don’t know how to explain to people what we saw when we’re explaining to people and they’re kind of looking back and saying well that can’t be true.”
Of course, like AOC, Tlaib claimed so-called “Experts,” but failed to name a single one.
Raddatz cut in to challenge her about voting for money to address such problems. That’s when it got heated.
Raddatz hammered right through though.
“Isn’t opposing aid contributing to this crisis?” she asked.
Raddatz tried again, but Tlaib was off her diatribe, her voice becoming louder and more frantic as she became more desperate to prove she was right and everyone else wrong.
Hopefully, even the Democrats will wise up and vote all these radical, do nothing but screech morons out of office in 2020.
Watch below as Tlaib goes from self-satisfied lecturer to hand-in-the-cookie-jar scrambling, raising her voice as she tries to DNC talking points her way out of answering Raddatz about her vote.

“Congresswoman, I want to stop you here for just a second,” said Raddatz. “[Acting DHS Secretary] McAleenan has been sounding the alarm for months for resources to help the migrants, you voted against the $4.6 billion emergency border bill to deal with the surge of migrants, that included almost $3 billion to provide shelter and care for unaccompanied children.”
“Acting Secretary McAleenan says those funds are critical to get children out of CBP custody and transfer, even if the bill didn’t have what you wanted,” she said as the two talked over each other.
Tlaib said to shift the question, and the blame.  “Well I’m proud – I – exactly but listen to this, do you know what the CBP agents said on the ground, though Martha?”
