Jake Tapper Shuts Down “Squad” Member For Lying

It looks like another one of the Freshmen Dems have bit off more than they can chew. CNN’s Jake Tapper was talking about how leaders set the tone for how people act. He was referring to how conservatives believe the Hamas sets a violent tone amongst other things. Tlaib somehow misconstrued what he said and found a way to be offended by it.

Tapper’s comment:

“You hear conservatives all the time, rightly so in my opinion, talk about the tone set by people in the Arab world. Palestinian leaders and the way they talk about Israelis… justifying,” Tapper said. “You can’t compare the ideology of Hamas with anything else. But at the same time, either tone matters or it doesn’t.”

Tlaib then found someone on Twitter that agreed with her and shared their tweet and her two cents.

This is the height of unethical journalism @jaketapper– you invoke Palestinians & Arabs as a comparison to white nationalist violence in the US? This is blatant anti-Arab bigotry & Islamophobia.@CNN needs to take action.”

Tlaib’s two cents.

“Comparing Palestinian human rights advocates to terrorist white nationalists is fundamentally a lie. Palestinians want equality, human dignity & to stop the imprisonment of children ⬇️.  White supremacy is calling for the *domination* of one race w/ the use of violence.”

Tapper came back At Tlaib for twisting what he said.

“You’re 100% right, Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib, it’s a lie. Because I never said that. What I said was those who believe Palestinian leaders bear responsibility for the incitement of terrorism cannot then let US leaders off the hook and act as if words don’t matter. https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1158382896954167296 …”

Tapper was clearly trying to make a point that the level of hate or violence is directly related to how a country is led. In the clip, he was winding up to bash Trump. Tlaib for some reason jumped in the way with her comment making a fool out of herself. Good stuff. It looks like these House Dems are just looking for a reason to pounce. It’s almost as if they attacked their own party and feel isolated…
