Newly resurfaced video shows Rashida Tlaib was a lefty lunatic with Trump Derangement Syndrome long before she even ran for Congress.
In August of 2016, she managed to get herself escorted out of a Trump event in Detroit.
Remember: Tlaib Interrupted A Trump Speech To Business Leaders… All In The Name Of ‘Doing Her Part’
An August 2016 video of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) being escorted out of then-candidate Donald Trump’s speech has resurfaced on social media. The video shows security guards removing Tlaib from the speech after interrupting the Republican nominee.
“You guys are crazy!” Tlaib yells at people in the audience.

After this incident, she apparently wrote an op-ed explaining why she did it.
From the Detroit Free Press:
I have heard critics calling it unbecoming of a former state legislator. Well, I believe it is unbecoming of any American to not stand up to Trump’s hate-filled rhetoric and tactics. Growing up the daughter of Palestinian immigrants in Detroit, I was taught about how Walter Reuther, Coleman Young, Rosa Parks, Viola Liuzzo and other great Detroiters risked their lives for justice. I still remember at the age of 12, learning that segregation had been permitted only a couple of decades before I was born and that a woman’s right to vote was not even a century old. But it was great Americans who stood up, some dying for the cause, to make our country better.
Courteous behavior can’t be reserved for someone who labels hardworking Mexican immigrants who have come to pursue the American Dream as “rapists.” Social niceties are not in order for men who would turn away refugees fleeing for their lives based on their faith to have them suffer in camps. And complacency is not warranted for a presidential candidate who denigrates a mother and father who have lost their child in the ultimate sacrifice of military service.
I can’t describe the fear that gripped me when I rose in front of nearly 2,000 professionals at this tony, corporate setting. I watched as Trump supporters taunted the women who stood before me as they were aggressively and briskly led to the exits. I froze, feeling the anger around me that would make anyone tremble. Yet, I could only think of the unwavering love for my two sons to find the courage to do my own part.
How did this woman get elected?
