Following the Hamas attack on Israel Rep. Rashida Tlaib is facing a lot of criticism.
A reporter recently pressed the Michigan congresswoman is Israel had a right to defend itself after the deadly attack in Israel. Tlaib was asked if she had anything to say about the atrocities that Hamas committed.
She refused to answer a single question, kept her head down, and walked as fast as she should.

What Tlaib did do is call anyone who criticizes her “bigoted.”
“I do not support the targeting and killing of civilians, whether in Israel or Palestine,” Tlaib claimed on Wednesday. “The fact that some have suggested otherwise is offensive and rooted in bigoted assumptions about my faith and ethnicity.”
Oh, then why didn’t you say that affirmly in front of the camera?
US lawmakers, including Republican Senator Rick Scott have been very outspoken about Tlaib’s stance.
“Terrorist sympathizers like @RashidaTlaib are disgraceful and her silence as innocent babies, men and women are being killed and attacked is shameful,” said Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL). “All D’s and R’s should condemn the horrific actions of Hamas, loud and unequivocally.”
Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY) said, “Unfit to serve.”
“It’s beyond me how an elected representative in the U.S. cannot turn to a reporter and openly condemn those actions,” said Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT). “They’ve fallen for everything and now they stand for nothing. I stand with Israel, no doubt about it.”
Rep. Mark Green (R-NC) said, “There is no excuse for refusing to condemn the atrocities of Hamas terrorists. Those condoning Hamas whether publicly or behind closed doors are a stain on the halls of Congress.”
