what’s right for her district?

Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are just “doing what is right for their district” when they repeatedly lob hateful, anti-Semitic slurs. At least that’s what Congressman Phillips’s friend Elissa Slotkin had to say in defense of their bigoted pals this weekend.

The latest slur? Congresswoman Tlaib said that thinking about the Holocaust – where Nazis murdered 6 million Jews – gives her a “calming feeling,” and blatantly tried to rewrite the history of WWII.

But Congressman Phillips refuses to take a stand against this hatred or call for Omar’s removal from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Does Phillips agree with Slotkin that Omar and Tlaib are “just doing what’s right for their districts” when they hurl hateful comments? Or will he finally find the backbone to condemn this behavior outright? 

We’re still waiting.
