This is what happens when politicians are more interested in settling personal scores than in serving the interest of the electorate.
And they say TRUMP is somehow falling short of being a ‘True Statesman’? When did it become acceptable to drop F-bombs in attacking your political opponent?
Meet Rashida Tlaib. She is one of two newly elected Muslims who chose to swear in on Jefferson’s copy of the Koran.
Rashida Tlaib is working very hard to claim Maxine Waters’s spot as the angriest and most unhinged Anti-Trump member of the #Resist party. For example:

As for the swearing in on Jefferson’s Koran, they might want to look into history and see if that’s such a great idea. Did they not the memo about what Jefferson REALLY thought about Islam? Hitchens wrote this when Keith Ellison did the same thing:
That this might not be so easy was discovered by Jefferson and John Adams when they went to call on Tripoli’s envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman. They asked him by what right he extorted money and took slaves in this way. As Jefferson later reported to Secretary of State John Jay, and to the Congress:
The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.
They may think that Trump’s being somehow ‘unpresidential’ with his stance on certain failed states around the world. These are the same failed states that were on his predecessor’s watch list. Plus the addition of Venezuela, which Bernie Sanders so recently admired as a better example of the American Dream than America itself, on his official Senate page.
Tlaib and John Bonifaz wrote an article demanding Trump’s immediate impeachment in the Detroit Free Press:
President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country. His conduct has created a constitutional crisis that we must confront now.
The Framers of the Constitution designed a remedy to address such a constitutional crisis: impeachment. Through the impeachment clause, they sought to ensure that we would have the power, through our elected representatives in Congress, to protect the country by removing a lawless president from the Oval Office.
We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offenses, including, just to name a few: obstructing justice; violating the emoluments clause; abusing the pardon power; directing or seeking to direct law enforcement to prosecute political adversaries for improper purposes; advocating illegal violence and undermining equal protection of the laws; ordering the cruel and unconstitutional imprisonment of children and their families at the southern border; and conspiring to illegally influence the 2016 election through a series of hush money payments.
She has explicitly stated she’s not even interested in waiting for the Mueller investigation to wrap up. She wants to take him down.
One wonders whether her visceral hatred for the President — the Orange Man Bad syndrome — has anything to do with Trump’s strong support of Israel and strong condemnation of one of the world’s leading State Sponsors of Terrorism, Iran.
Tlaib, herself American-born, is proudly Palestinian. She made a point of wearing her traditional ethnic dress as part of her swearing in. Iran and Palestine are closely-aligned, but Iran throws a party every year chanting Death To America with a few hundred thousand of their closest friends. They also send boatloads of money to Hamas and Yemen to keep proxy wars against their Jewish and Saudi enemies alive.
Trump, through sanctions, has been reigning in Iran’s ability to fund such efforts. This, obviously, aligns with US national interests.
Tlaib isn’t even interested in pretending to waiting for evidence backing up her efforts to turf the duly-elected President.
In her mind, the American people were wrong to elect him.
She has already forgotten, these are some of the same American voters that put her there.
If this is what it’s going to look like for the next two years, we can’t wait to watch them get spanked in 2020.
If you thought Trump was filling up stadiums NOW, just wait until we get to the General Election!
