Tlaib’s Apology For Anti Trump Tirade Is As Sickening As What She Said To Begin With!
It’s something that is absolutely inexcusable the way that Rashida Tlaib laid down the sickeningly profane insult that she did towards President Trump.
The whole situation reminds me of something that we were told when I was in the Navy whenever we would visit a port in a foreign country.
Every single time, without fail due to the fact that there were people that had never heard the speech before, we were all told that there were very specific things that we should not do.
The reason given is that we were acting as representatives of the United States and the Navy in particular, anything that we did or said that was out of school would make our branch of service look bad and the other people’s perception of the United States bad.
There wasn’t a single time though, where someone didn’t go out and make a complete buffoon of themselves. Whenever they would have to answer for it, they would alway seemingly be more sad that they got caught rather than the fact that they made a complete fool of themselves.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, refused once more to apologize for her profanity-laden pledge to impeach President Donald Trump — but did express regret that the remark became a “distraction.”
“I am a person that is authentically me,” Tlaib said during her remarks at an event for the Michigan Veterans Foundation on Tuesday. “I’m very passionate about fighting for all of us, and the use of that language was a teachable moment for me.”
“I understand I am a member of Congress. And I don’t want anything that I do or say to distract us. That is the only thing I apologize for, is that it was a distraction,” the freshman congresswoman added. “We have a course that we have to stick to, and nothing I say should distract us from that. The shutdown has to be at the forefront, that’s what I am here for, to shift to. This is so much more important.”
During the event for veterans, Tlaib discussed the partial shutdown’s effect on government workers and the impact on her constituents.
“It’s a critical moment for us in our country to fully grasp the human toll that this shutdown has in our communities,” said Tlaib.
“As we enter the third week of this shutdown, we are still waiting for the United States Senate to take action and for the president to signal a willingness to end this harm not only for our federal workers but for our families and resident impacted by government programs they need today,” she added.
