What a charming old lady!
If you ever wondered whether the apple fell far from the tree in the case of Rep. Rashida Tlaib, I think you now have your answer.
In case you haven’t seen it, President Trump exposed the hypocrisy of Tlaib in a tweet this weekend, and wrapped it up with a joke about Tlaib’s grandmother:
The Grandmother didn't take very kindly to the message.
In response, she has reportedly cursed President Trump and said she wants God to "ruin" him.
Now to be clear on one point, she references "Allah" which Christians would say is not God at all but in fact may be just another name for Lucifer.
Also, making curses and trying to inflict harm on others with your words is literally the definition of witchcraft, which again would seem to come more from Lucifer than the one true God.
Fox News had more on the story:
Muftia Tlaib, the 99-year-old grandmother of Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., had some strong words for President Trump after he claimed the elder Tlaib was a "winner" because her granddaughter decided not to visit her in Israel.
“Trump tells me I should be happy Rashida is not coming,” Reuters reported her saying. “May God ruin him." The nonagenarian was reportedly hopeful that Rep. Tlaib would come despite the Michigan congresswoman's claim that doing so -- on the condition that she wouldn't promote boycotts of Israel -- would humiliate her.
That statement came just a day after Trump appeared to troll the lawmaker by claiming her grandmother was better off without her visiting.
"The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!" he said.
Rashida Tlaib initially requested a humanitarian visit to her grandmother after the Israeli government rejected her and Rep. Ilhan Omar's, D-Minn., request to enter the Jewish state. Citing the two's itinerary, Israel claimed that their visit was intended to promote boycotts against the nation.
The congresswoman later requested the humanitarian visit through a letter that contained a promise not to promote boycotts. But the Michigan Democrat reversed course after Israel accepted her request, claiming she would have to go under "oppressive conditions."
"Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me," Rashida Tlaib tweeted, referring to her grandmother. "It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in--fighting against racism, oppression & injustice."
Tlaib's family told Fox News' Trey Yingst that they supported her statement and decision, saying that the dispute illustrated a bigger issue for Palestinians.
"They don't want her to come, "Bassam Tlaib, the congresswoman's uncle, told Fox News. "They prevent her because they know she's coming here to see in her own eyes with the delegation, the suffering of the Palestinian people and the violation of the occupation on the people's lives here."
You with Trump?
