Holy Cripes, the World is Changing - Rashida Dumped All Over Hillary (Video). But Then it Changed Back

On Saturday, Rashida Tlaib did something you rarely see a representative do: She apologized.

And — as you may know, thanks to Nick Arama’s coverage — the reason for her apology was interesting as all get-out.

Rashida led the crowd in booing that icon of left-wing politics, Hillary Clinton.

Fellow panelists Pramila Jayapal and Ilhan Omar laughed.

But it couldn’t last.

Back to One, everybody.

The wild occurrence took place in Clive, Iowa, Friday. The occasion: a Bernie rally.

Rashida’s definitely Team Sanders, and I guess she’s none too pleased with the way things went in 2016.

If I may say so, I’m stunned at the radically different take on Hillary among some in the Democratic Party.

Is it just me, or does it serve as one more reminder of the phoniness of politics?

Either way, holy moley — what a shocker:

As a news item, now we’re getting somewhere — it’s meaty.

But shortly after, Rashida reverted to vegetarianism: She took it back.

“I am so incredibly in love with the movement that our campaign of #NotMeUs has created. This makes me protective over it and frustrated by attempts to dismiss the strength and diversity of our movement. However, I know what is at stake if we don’t unify over one candidate to beat Trump and I intend to do everything possible to ensure that Trump does not win in 2020. In this instance, I allowed my disappointment with Secretary Clinton’s latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me. You all, my sisters-in-service on stage, and our movement deserve better. I will continue to strive to come from a place of love and not react in the same way of those who are against what we are building in this country. This is about building a just and equitable future for my two boys, children across the country, and future generations.”

 

She really does seem to love Bern. In fact, according to her re-tweet, she thinks it’s time for us to all become rich like everyone else:

And, as noted by The Daily Wire, Tlaib has reasons other than 2016 to not particularly love Hil:

Tlaib was likely responding to comments Clinton has made during the publicity tour for her Hulu documentary, “Hillary,” which premiered last weekend at the Sundance Film Festival. In the film, Clinton calls Sanders unlikable and fake.

Clinton doubled down on her comments in an interview with Variety last week, angering Sanders supporters who reminded Clinton that Sanders campaigned for her in 2016 despite believing he’d been unfairly shut out of the nomination process by a Democratic “establishment” that crowned Clinton the nominee before the campaign even began in earnest.

Some in the party didn’t appreciate Rashida’s anti-Clinton antics, calling them “disappointing and beneath the dignity of the offices these women hold.”

It’s all fixed now, though: She’s not culpable due to her able mea culpa.

And thus, the beat goes on.

But I gotta believe Hillary’s still steamed over the young whippersnappers taking a shot.
