Much like hyenas in the wild, certain Democrats in the House of Representatives have no problems turning, then devouring, their own.
Case in point, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has rushed to defend her fellow Muslim and Member of Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-WI) from what Tlaib refers to as “Islamophobia” apparently running rampant through the 116th Congress.
Of course, Tlaib is pointing the accusing finger at the Republicans. But much like a wounded and desperate hyena, the Gentlewoman from Michigan’s 6th Congressional District is also turning on her fellow Democrats.
As reported by Fox News;
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, defended her colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar from backlash within their own party regarding the Minnesota representative’s controversial remarks deemed by some to be anti-Semitic.
Omar suggested on Twitter that pro-Israel politicians are bought by groups like AIPAC and that those who support Israel have an “allegiance to a foreign country.” Her remarks sparked much condemnation, including several of her Democratic colleagues.
In a preview clip of an interview on Showtime’s “The Circus,” Tlaib suggested that “Islamophobia” within their party could be behind the swift condemnation for the comments.
“You know, I’m trying to figure it out. It’s just this past week, I feel, and I know this would be somewhat shocking for some, but I think Islamophobia is very much among the Democratic Party as well as the Republican Party,” Tlaib answered.
