(NationalSentinel) Video has surfaced of then-U.S. congressional candidate Rashida Tlaib being forcefully escorted out of a Trump campaign railing in 2016, presumably by Secret Service, as she flailed and gesticulated wildly while screaming at the crowd.
At one point, Tlaib is heard looking into a camera and claiming that Trump supporters are the crazy ones.

As The Daily Caller notes in the video, “Whenever Rashida Tlaib calls Republicans crazy, remember to watch this video.”
Later, Tlaib (D-Mich) was given a platform in the Detroit Free Press to justify her outburst, where she was allowed to level false accusations at the president-to-be and make out-of-context claims unchallenged:
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.
Watching my 11-year old’s anxiety increase the more he hears from his friends about what Donald Trump said or wants to do if he is elected has been heartbreaking. So when I heard Trump was coming to Detroit to speak only a few miles from our home, I couldn’t say no when I was offered a ticket to attend his speech.
Yes, well, it was this ‘Mother-of-the-Year’ candidate, you recall, who resorted to the worst kind of profanity to proclaim, the day she was sworn in, that Democrats were “gonna impeach the motherf**ker” president:

After a week in which POTUS has been, once again, victimized by a fake news media which claimed a series of tweets he sent out to members of Congress who have routinely demonstrated anti-American tendencies were “racist,” the president quadrupled down on that theme Sunday.
Taking aim at Reps. Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), the president wrote, “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”

POTUS is also making these four the faces of the Democrat Party heading into the 2020 election.
“If the Democrats want to embrace people that hate our country, people that are so far-left that nobody’s ever seen anything like it, if they want to embrace people that are so anti-Semitic and anti-Israel, if they want to do that, that’s up to them,” the president told reporters on the White House lawn last week. “But I don’t have to do that.
“The things they’ve said about our country are terrible,” he said. “What they’ve said about Israel are just terrible.”
Democrats have leapt to the defense of their colleagues, seemingly taking the bait the president laid out for them.
In March, the House passed a watered-down resolution condemning Omar’s repeated “anti-Semitic” and “pernicious” comments, but did not directly name her. (Related: Why did it take the Democrat-controlled House an entire WEEK to pass an ‘anti-hate’ bill?)
On Friday, Trump said: “I love our country. And I’m representing our country. And people can’t go around speaking about our country and saying garbage.”
“I think what they say, and what they’ve said, is a disgrace to them, to the Democrats and frankly to our country,” he said.
