Cocktails & Popcorn: The Truth Always Wins In Detroit - Trump v. Rashida

"Well, it took them long enough to get to Detroit!"
Oh boy!

We are finally in Detroit and it is the week of our birthdays.

I wonder how Rashida is going to release the truth about her election, considering there was *russian/israeli/ukrainian* interference when it comes her successfully winning the Michigan 13th U.S. Congressional District seat.

Perhaps, Trump will stop obstructing justice and pull that IG Report from his back pocket for our birthdays.

If he does, the world will need lots of cocktails and popcorn.

You can hear her interview here.

Since Rashida ran her entire campaign on impeaching Trump, I made sure she had all the materials necessary to carry out her ingenious plan.

Whatever you do, Rashida, do not listen to Nancy.

Only listen to Jolly Jerry because he knows alot about Israel....and Russia....and the Ukraine....and impeachment.

Here is a bit of Palestinian history Rashida does not know about.

We should ask the "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) over there at Fox Rothschild to share more history with Rashida.

President Trump slams Rep. Rashida Tlaib for Holocaust comments


WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday criticized U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, for comments she made about the Holocaust, calling them "horrible and highly insensitive." 
"She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people," said Trump.

Tlaib maintained that she has no such negative feelings and that her comments were being misconstrued by Trump and others as a means to attack her and other Democrats politically. Tlaib has also talked in the past of the need to address human rights concerns in Palestinian territory.

"This behavior by a bankrupt Republican leadership is dangerous and only increases hateful rhetoric from those who want to cause harm to oppressed people," Tlaib said in a statement Sunday night. "The Republican Party has reached a new low."

A Palestinian-American and one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress, Tlaib has been under attack by Republican commentators because of remarks she made regarding the Holocaust on an episode of Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast aired last week.

While Tlaib was speaking of the need for a solution to human rights concerns among Palestinians living in Israeli territory, she mentioned that a recent Holocaust remembrance had a "kind of calming feeling" for her because of the role her ancestors played in providing a "safe haven" for Jews whether they did so willingly or not.

"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, …all of it was just in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews post the Holocaust, post the tragedy and horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time," she said, according to a transcript provided by her office. "And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right? ... But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them."

Tlaib went on to say that she is "coming from a place of love, for equality and justice" for all people and that she wants "a safe haven" for Jews.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., were among those criticizing Tlaib for the comments, with Cheney urging House Democratic leadership to punish her in some way.

The flap over the comments comes after another Muslim member of Congress, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., was sharply criticized for remarks about people pushing for loyalty to Israel, which some felt were antisemitic.

On Sunday, Tlaib tweeted, "Policing my words, twisting & turning them to ignite vile attacks on me will not work. All of you who are trying to silence me will fail miserably. I will never allow you to take my words out of context to push your racist and hateful agenda. The truth will always win."

Tlaib and Trump have been fighting since she came into office in January. She introduced a resolution calling for an investigation into whether Trump should be impeached and invoked a curse word when speaking of him early this year.
