Controversial Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib erupted on Vice President Mike Pence over the weekend; blasting his “disgusting” eight-car motorcade while visiting a secluded Michigan island.
“Disgusting. I am in such disbelief that this was allowed to happen. This Administration doesn’t care about the law (you know, the U.S. Constitution), so it shouldn’t surprise me so much that they don’t care about our history or traditions,” posted Tlaib on social media.

Banned for a century people, and here comes the Trump Administration trampling all over it, like they do the U.S. Constitution.

“Banned for a century people, and here comes the Trump Administration trampling all over it, like they do the U.S. Constitution,” she added. “This video of the cars driving on our beautiful #MackinacIsland makes my stomach turn.”
The Detroit Free Press defended Pence’s motorcade, citing security concerns surrounding the Vice President’s trip.
“Among the things that have changed since Ford’s visit are the attempt to assassinate him by Lynette ‘Squeaky’ Fromme later that year, the 1981 attempt by John Hinckley Jr. to assassinate President Ronald Reagan, and the 9-11 terror attacks,” writes the newspaper.

“Why would we not suspend our program with China? Or take our longest standing program in Nepal, where the Pitzer in Nepal program has been run for over 40 years. During that time they have had a bloody civil war that killed 19,000 people,” said the president of the College Council. “Why Israel?”
Tlaib’s spokesperson did not respond to Fox News’ request for comments.

“The congresswomen have supported Palestinian rights and backed the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement targeting Israel. Both have been accused by other members of Congress of using anti-Semitic language, but leaders of both parties had said they should be allowed to visit Israel,” adds the website.
President Trump urged the Israeli government to bar Reps. Omar and Tlaib from the country on social media Thursday; saying “they hate Israel and all Jewish people.”
“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!” posted the President.

The Israeli government may deny access to controversial Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from the Jewish State in the coming weeks; citing their vocal support for anti-Israeli boycotts.
“An Israeli government official decided Thursday that U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., should be barred from entering the country for a planned visit this weekend, according to Israeli media,” reports Fox News.
“The two freshman congresswomen support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS), a pro-Palestinian advocacy effort, and Israeli law says those supporting boycotts of the country may be denied entry. The decision to enforce the law against Tlaib and Omar was reportedly made by Israeli Interior Minister Arye Deri, but a formal decision and announcement have yet to be made as other parties weigh in,” adds Fox.
