Hillary Clinton Gets Booed By Rashida Tlaib at Bernie Sanders Event
Progressive Rep turns on Clinton following her attacks on candidate
Progressive Democratic Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., booed twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton when her name came up during a Sen. Bernie Sanders event in Iowa, just three days before the Iowa caucuses.
Rashida's reaction was prompted by moderator Dionna Langford, who quoted Clinton in an interview saying “nobody likes” Sanders.
"We're not gonna boo; we're not gonna boo. We're classy here,” Langford said as the crowd erupted.
"No, I'll boo. Boo!” Tlaib said, who was seated onstage next to laughing Reps. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
“You all know, I can't be quiet," she continued.
"No, we're going to boo. That's all right," she declared.
"The haters will shut up on Monday when we win."
Earlier this month, Clinton blasted her old foe Sanders declaring that "nobody likes him."
Speaking during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the new Hulu documentary, "Hillary," - a series on her life - Clinton bashes 2020 Democratic contender Sanders as "a career politician" who "got nothing done."
They're from America, and you're right about one thing: Currently their government is a complete and total catastrophe. https://t.co/NvsnFSN8mb— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) July 14, 2019
Hillary venomous remarks built on what has already been a news cycle filled with bad press for Bernie in advance of the Iowa caucuses.
"He was in Congress for years," Clinton declares in an excerpt from the docuseries.
Last year, Clinton defended Tlaib when Trump said she and the other members of the Squad should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
But it seems the progressive congresswoman was not willing to return the gesture.
