Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib found herself in the center of a political firestorm.
And what Tlaib did escalated her feud with President Trump.
But that was a big mistake because Donald Trump just shut down Rashida Tlaib with one rude awakening.
Israel denied the Michigan Democrat entry into the country because of her support for the racist and anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
The Israeli government eventually said Tlaib could travel to Israel to visit her 90 year-old grandmother but that she couldn’t promote the BDS movement.
Tlaib initially agreed before reversing course and claiming Israel tried to “silence” her.
Tlaib then staged a phony press conference where she claimed she would visit her grandmother when it was a free Palestine and downplayed the fact that their trip was sponsored by a group that supported neo-Nazi blood libels against Jews.
President Trump had enough of the phony tears and called out Tlaib on social media.
Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!

It was clear Tlaib never cared about visiting her grandmother.
Turning down Israel’s offer made that clear.
She just wanted to make a public spectacle of herself and promote her anti-Semitic ideology.
And Donald Trump called her out on it.
