Rep. Rashida Tlaib has mental breakdown during Trump speech and must be restrained [VIDEO]
OPINION by DJ Mellons ll ‘Love it or leave it’ used to be a pretty common phrase in the United States, but now apparently if you say something dastardly like that, you’re a racist! Most people who come to America are pretty grateful and happy they made it here – but not so with a bunch of new Representatives in Congress.
In case you missed it, four Freshman members of Congress are complaining that President Trump is endangering them because he calls them names and tells them to fix their native countries and stop ruining ours. Their behavior and anti-American statements are bad enough, but watch this video below:
Here is the classy congresswoman Rashida Tlaib during a Trump Speech. Democrats have completely lost their minds! 😂

Believe it or not, that is an actual member of Congress.
The August 2016 video of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) being escorted out of then-candidate Donald Trump’s speech has resurfaced on social media, now that she’s become a member of “The Squad” and calling for the elimination of ICE, calling them Nazi’s, etc.
The video shows security guards removing Tlaib from the speech after interrupting the Republican nominee. “You guys are crazy!” Tlaib yells at people in the audience. Tlaib penned an opinion piece in the Detroit Free Press after the disruption took place to explain how she felt compelled to disrupt Trump because of his “hate-filled rhetoric and tactics.” She and 12 other women made a commotion during Trump’s speech to the Detroit Economic Club in August 2016.
I have heard critics calling it unbecoming of a former state legislator. Well, I believe it is unbecoming of any American to not stand up to Trump’s hate-filled rhetoric and tactics. Growing up the daughter of Palestinian immigrants in Detroit, I was taught about how Walter Reuther, Coleman Young, Rosa Parks, Viola Liuzzo and other great Detroiters risked their lives for justice. I still remember at the age of 12, learning that segregation had been permitted only a couple of decades before I was born and that a woman’s right to vote was not even a century old. But it was great Americans who stood up, some dying for the cause, to make our country better.
Courteous behavior can’t be reserved for someone who labels hardworking Mexican immigrants who have come to pursue the American Dream as “rapists.” Social niceties are not in order for men who would turn away refugees fleeing for their lives based on their faith to have them suffer in camps. And complacency is not warranted for a presidential candidate who denigrates a mother and father who have lost their child in the ultimate sacrifice of military service.
I can’t describe the fear that gripped me when I rose in front of nearly 2,000 professionals at this tony, corporate setting. I watched as Trump supporters taunted the women who stood before me as they were aggressively and briskly led to the exits. I froze, feeling the anger around me that would make anyone tremble. Yet, I could only think of the unwavering love for my two sons to find the courage to do my own part.
I told Trump that “our children deserve better” and I asked him to provide a better example to our kids. I implored him to read the U.S. Constitution. And then I was grabbed by several security personnel who physically moved me to the exit while I continued to express my concerns.
Tlaib said Trump is responsible for creating “an atmosphere wherein my sons are questioning their place and identity as Arab Americans and Muslims.” She felt compelled to stand up to Trump as a way of defending her sons.
She’s a member of Congress. Let that sink in again.
