Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) revealed in a recent Instagram post what Barack Obama told her during a private meeting: “I’m proud of you.”
In light of Tlaib’s controversial behavior during her first three months in office, one might ask what precisely Obama was so proud of.
Does Obama approve of how Tlaib initiated her term by going on a vulgar tirade against President Trump and announcing, “We’re going to go in there, and we’re going to impeach the motherf***er”?
Does he approve of how Tlaib persisted in her witch hunt against Trump despite his exoneration by the Mueller investigation?
Does he approve of Tlaib’s association with Hezbollah-backing activist Abbas Hamideh, or her support for the anti-Israel BDS movement?
On the other hand, perhaps Tlaid was among the politicians Obama had in mind when he reportedly warned the brash new breed of Democrats to pay closer attention to how their big ideas will work and how the government will pay for them.
