House Majority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and 2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are demanding that President Donald Trump and the rest of the GOP apologize to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for saying she feels “a calming feeling” from thinking about the Holocaust.

Recently, Pelosi tweeted that Tlaib’s comments were being misrepresented as an attempt to smear the Muslim politician:

“Republicans’ desperate attempts to smear @RepRashida & misrepresent her comments are outrageous. President @realDonaldTrump & House GOP should apologize to Rep. Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.”

Sen. Sanders tweeted a similar message, accusing Trump of “ugly attacks against Muslim women in Congress”:

“Mr. President: Stop dividing the American people up by their religion, their race or their country of origin–and stop your ugly attacks against Muslim women in Congress. You are taking Rep. @RashidaTlaib‘s comments out of context and should apologize.”

As CNSNews.com reports, Rep. Tlaib made her controversial remarks in a recent interview.

Talking about Israeli-Palestinan relations, Rep. Tlaib said, “There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports.”

“And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time,” said the congresswoman.

“I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, right? And it was forced on them,” she said.

In a recent tweet, Pres. Trump denounced Tlaib’s “horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust,” adding she “obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people.” Other Republicans, such as House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wy.), have also denounced Rep. Tlaib’s Holocaust comments.

  1. This lady does not belong in American politics’ as she is a hater of all things American, This country allowed her family to come here and she repays it with the backing of Muslim extremist. She claims the PlO let the Jews in she forgets how the PLO came to be there was because the Pharos had them moved there onto the JEWs land.

  2. Well, if you think our President Trump is picking on this poor, unfortunate, lil muslim baby girl, you better think again you idiot! Muslims hate our guts, they will use anything they can to kill us. Go with them if you want to destroy the United States, but if you do then you need to know that I, and many millions of white folks will be coming for you, when the time arrives, then you’ll have no place to run, no where to hide and you’ll answer for siding against white American’s, your brothers, and you won’t like the result.

  3. Peelowsy is @ it again , blaming reps 4 what her SOCOM party is doing. Same old commie tactics.

  4. Pelosi and all the Democrats should be told they can all go to hell, for hell would have to freeze over before they ever get an apology!!!! The Democrats should all be apologising to to us for the remarks these UNAMERICANS have said, and the Democrats should of removed all these bias and racist politicians from holding office in are country!!! I really think that the Democrats are forever done in are country and lost the trust of the citizens, for they are nothing like they once were!!! They are now a party of greed and power and do not uphold the rules of law or the Constitution!!! There ideology is sick and perverted, and I can only hope that the citizens of are country wake up to the harm these Democratic politicians are trying to impose on us they will see that they are after to destroying are freedoms and are traditions and are rights, and it isn’t hard to see this period!!!! A revolution or civil war is coming and even this is obvious and I believe this is what the Democrats and liberals want!!! They say history always repeats itself, and it sure looks like that is what is going to happen!!!!

  5. Just keep on demanding pelosi and see just how far you get with our Great President.
    Our president has no need whatsoever to apologize to a muslime who hates him and our America.
    Go President Trump for you have the 2020 election in your pocket.
    God Bless our President for he is the best president this country has ever had.

  6. The Problem Tlaib had is that she does not know her history. The Palestinians never had a country. The Palestinians have enough moves ney to send 20.000 tickets per year into Israel with Nostradamus of using that money to improve their situation. This lady is disgusting, which circumstantial is an eufemism.
