‘So what happened on Jan. 6, all I could do was thank Allah that I wasn’t here,’ Tlaib says.
Footage featuring Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) weeping crocodile tears over the January 6 Capitol debacle – which she was nowhere near – has gone viral.
In the video, the far-left member of The Squad claims the events at the Capitol evoked memories of death threats she purportedly received when she first took office.
“On my very first day of orientation, I got my first death threat,” Tlaib said. “It was a serious one. They took me aside, the FBI had to go to the gentleman’s home. I didn’t even get sworn in yet and someone wanted me dead for just existing. More came later. Uglier, more violent.”
“Each one paralyzed me each time,” she alleged, adding, “So what happened on Jan. 6, all I could do was thank Allah that I wasn’t here.”
People on Twitter saw right through the tearful pathos, with many pointing out Tlaib admitted she wasn’t at the Capitol on January 6
