On @LateNightSeth, @RashidaTlaib: “I got a text message from a friend who’s like, ‘Hey, next time, you know, really clarify. Maybe talk like a fourth grader because maybe the racist idiots would understand you better.’” #LNSM pic.twitter.com/XxAlzluR52

Problem with her story besides the revisionist lie about Palestinians being welcoming to Jews? Her grandmother doesn’t live in “occupied territories,” Israel hasn’t occupied it since 1995. So that’s another lie to attack Israel.
Via Fox News:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich, doubled down on her controversial remarks about having a “calming feeling” whenever she thinks that Palestinians created a “safe haven for Jews” after the Holocaust during her appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” on Monday night, suggesting that she should be speaking to “racist idiots” at a fourth-grade level.
Last week, Tlaib drew backlash for comments she made during a Yahoo News podcast interview, where critics accused her of saying that the WWII genocide of six million Jews gave her a “calming feeling” as well as offering revisionist history for claiming that Palestinians welcomed Jews to the Middle East when Palestinian leader Grand Mufti Haj Amin el Husseini was actually an ally of Adolph Hitler and met with the dictator in 1941.
Tlaib began by explaining to “Late Night” host Seth Meyers that her grandmother lives in the West Bank, which she referred to as “the occupied territories of Palestine” and how many of her ancestors “died” or “gave up their livelihood” to provide that safe haven for Jews, which she wanted to “recognize and honor.”
