Sanders Defends Tlaib From Trump: ‘Stop Dividing The American People Up By Their Religion’

9

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday defended freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib after President Trump accused her of anti-Semitism.

“Mr. President: Stop dividing the American people up by their religion, their race or their country of origin–and stop your ugly attacks against Muslim women in Congress. You are taking Rep. @RashidaTlaib’s comments out of context and should apologize,” Sanders tweeted.
The controversy began after Tlaib, one of two Muslim women in Congress, told Yahoo News’s “Skullduggery” podcast that she gets a “calming feeling” knowing that her Palestinian ancestors lost their land so that Jews could have a safe place to live after the Holocaust.

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, 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, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said in the interview.

  1. Burn Bernie Burn!!! May he live and suffer for a few more years and lose big in the Dem Primary to one of the other Dem nobodys.

  2. Dividing people by their religion? What is this Muslim trash doing? Bernie it’s a shame you didn’t land up in a gas chamber

  3. Thank goodness this cranky old wind bag will never reach the highest office in the land. It’s ironic that this drooling bum never criticized Obama/Holder for their intolerable Divide & Conquer strategy. They pitted black against white, gay against straight, death worshiping against pro-life, criminal against law enforcement, Thought Police against free speech, etc… They stirred up racial tension going back over 100 years. But yet in all of that, the self hating racist, Bernie Sanders, who moved to the WHITEST of WHITE States, didn’t say a word.

  4. zlate1, why do give him the honors of calling him erev rav. He is the chazeer, whose hooves are split but does not chew its cud: says the Torah, Tomay Hu Lachem. He’s a living nevaila! Vile with vitriol toward Jews.

  5. It seems that the prerequisite to be a dem frontrunners is to have a negative iq. Tlaib is the biggest bigot, race baiter, anti semite, evil incarnate that’s ever been elected to any gov’t position, and this brainless dolt says trump is dividing the nation based on religion?!?!?

  6. How about you stop trying to divide us by class! You, Bernie, are the lowest of the lowest of the low! You were COMPLICIT in Hillary’s STEALING of the 2016 DNC nomination! You sat by and didn’t say diddly squat! The heck with all those people who donated to you.

    If you had brains, which you clearly don’t, you would have gone into hiding, never to show that ugly face ever again.
