Kudos to John King for calling out Rashida Tlaib for her recent Holocaust remarks. He and his guest have it exactly right.
Via Free Beacon.
During Monday afternoon’s broadcast of Inside Politics, CNN host John King corrected Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) for her recent remarks that Palestinians provided a “safe haven” for Jews after the Holocaust.
King noted that Palestinian leaders had sided with Hitler during World War II.
In a podcast for Yahoo News released on Saturday, Tlaib said, “there’s always kind of a calming feeling,” when she thinks about how her Palestinian ancestors provided a “safe haven” for Jews when the state of Israel was officially established in 1948.
Tlaib, “ignored the fact that Palestinian leaders at the time allied themselves with Hitler and that total war is how the Arab world reacted to the declaration of Israeli independence,” King said before introducing a panel discussion on the controversy….
House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (Wyo.) described Tlaib’s remarks as “sickening” and called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) to “finally take action against Representative Tlaib and other members of the Democratic caucus who are spreading vile anti-Semitism.”….
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi sinks to a new low of shameless partisan politics:
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.
