Controversial Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib lead a crowd in booing Hillary Clinton during a live campaign event for presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders in Iowa yesterday.
The boos began toward the end of a panel discussion with Tlaib and Reps. Ilhan Omar and Pramila Jayapal at Sanders’s first “Caucus Concert,” which featured a performance by Bon Iver in Clive, Iowa, ahead of this Monday’s caucus.
Moderator Dionna Langford mentioned that Clinton was quoted in an interview saying “nobody likes” Sanders, The Hill reported.
“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, who was seated onstage next to laughing Reps. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., interrupted. “You all know, I can’t be quiet. No, we’re going to boo. That’s all right. The haters will shut up on Monday when we win.”
