Disgusted by Rashida Talib part 2

By eleazermorris - May 19 2019
Read more

I love the Daily, but that episode was an all time low. Listening to her BS and Michael not challenging her on anything was awful. There is no Palestine, and there never was. 1948 was a war started by Arabs not Israel and those who fled did so expecting all Jews to be killed. All wars since 1948 were 100% the responsibility of neighbor Arab countries. Israel is, and will forever stay Jewish and Rashida is an anti Semitic b*tch

Thank you for covering abortion!!!

The Freshman: Rashida Tlaib, Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

When we last spoke with Representative Rashida Tlaib, she had just been sworn in — and had fulfilled the fears of Democratic leaders by calling for the impeachment of President Trump. In the months since, she’s been challenging her party on a different front, attracting controversy for her criticisms of Israel, which some have characterized as anti-Semitic. Ms. Tlaib has repeatedly denied that there’s any anti-Semitism behind what she’s said. But she hasn’t spoken at length about the controversy or explained where she’s coming from. So a few weeks ago, we traveled back to visit her at her congressional office in Detroit. Guests: Representative Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan; and Andy Mills and Jessica Cheung, producers for “The Daily.” For more information on today’s episode, visit nytimes.com/thedaily.
