Trump Drags Tlaib’s Grandmother Into His Latest Twitter Attack Against Congresswoman

This is low, even for him.

Donald Trump is certainly well known for his manic Twitter habits. Any time something rubs him the wrong way, even in the slightest, he takes to his social media account like a scorned teenager to let the entire world know just how mad he truly is.

In the last two and a half years, a mature president who holds actually press briefings when things go awry or he has an announcement, or at the very least one that just keeps his mouth shut like a grown adult in a position of power should when someone hurts his feelings, has become a mere whisper of a memory.

In case you’ve been living under a soundproof rock somewhere in the desert, you know that Donald recently ignited a feud with four different Congresswomen of color, in which he took to his Twitter account and told them all to “go back where they came from.”


Since then, Donald’s racist rhetoric and behavior have relentlessly spiraled downhill because evidently his mother never taught him how to apologize or let shit go.

He’s spewed his hate at rallies, press gaggles, and speeches — essentially anywhere he thought someone might listen to him — encouraged his deplorable base to crawl out of the shadows with chants of “send her back,” and of course, kept up his nonsense on Twitter.

But last night, Trump sent out what may have been one of the most disgusting tweets we’ve seen out of him in a long time.

If you keep up with the news at all, you know that Trump recently called on the country of Israel to deny entry to two members of The Squad, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who had a visit planned — and Israel took Donald’s advice.

Since then, Rep. Tlaib penned a letter to the country requesting entry to her country on humanitarian grounds to visit her family. However, after the debacle, Tlaib ultimately decided that due to the behavior of Israel based on Donald Trump’s request, she could not go in good conscience.

“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in — fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” the Congresswoman announced.

And evidently, that rubbed Donnie the wrong way, leading to a tweet that will make you sick to your stomach.

“Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!” Trump’s disgusting tweet read.

In case you were somehow still unconvinced, this is all the proof you should need to realize we have nothing more than a petulant child in the White House. A racist, hateful, petulant child.
