Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib defends her buddy Ilhan Omar, using the oldest trick in the Democrat playbook, the “race card.”
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib came to the defense of fellow freshman Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday after she was accused of downplaying the Sept. 11 terror attacks that left nearly 3,000 Americans dead.
“They do this all the time to us, especially women of color. They do that. They take our words out of context because they’re afraid, because we speak truth. We speak truth to power,” Tlaib told NBC News.
“My sister Ilhan Omar, what she was talking about was up lifting people by supporting their civil liberties and civil rights,” Tlaib continued. “She has always, always condemned any kind of strategy, especially of a person that is directly impacted by being a refugee herself. She sees what terrorism can do. She sees what violence can do to a whole country, to a whole people.”
