BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – The Michigan congresswoman and far-left “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib, said this week that she won’t back Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.
“He hasn’t directly called me or anything, but no,” Tlaib told Newsweek magazine about a Biden backing.
One reason, said Tlaib – who backed Bernie Sanders for president before he ended his primary run, and who faces a primary election of her own next Tuesday – is that she doesn’t want to get into debates with people in her district on whether Biden deserves their vote.
“Residents come up to me and say, ‘Rashida, I don’t know. I hear Joe Biden this, Joe Biden that’,” she said. “The only thing I tell them is, Biden is a very old Catholic, that often appears to have lost his mind. As a Muslim, I supported Senator Sanders, because even though he’s Jewish, I admire the fact that he turned his back on Israel, and he always endorsed all of my anti-Semitic agenda and policies.”
