White House Tries To Cover Up Trump’s Participation In Israeli Banning of Tlaib, Omar, and Is Called Out

253

I never thought I would be quoting the philosophies of Jeb Bush, but this is a day and age where I have found the likes of John Boehner and Anthony Scaramucci providing a moral compass, so literally anything is possible. Jeb Bush said about Trump, back in the 2016 GOP primary days, “Donald is going to find out some day that you just can’t go around insulting people.” Sound remark on Trump’s propensity for viciously attacking his political adversaries, but sadly, I don’t think Trump will ever learn. And right now, my sense of things is that Trump is going to get even uglier, because he’s getting cornered, and you know how rats are then.

Israel is banning Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting not only Israel but all of the Occupied Territories. This move comes as a result of urging from Donald Trump. The White House lied about that fact at 9:00 a.m. Thursday and then Trump went on Twitter and showed that the White House lied.

Stephanie Grisham is a paid liar, just like Huckabee Sanders was. She said reports that Trump told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop the congresswomen from visiting were “inaccurate” and she said, “The Israeli government can do what it wants.” No doubt. But it’s also doing what Trump wants, and he proved that an hour later in his tweet. The reaction to both Netanyahu and Trump’s machinations has been predictable.

Israel is an apartheid state, noted for it’s war crimes, so of course, Trump backs it. That’s just his kind of a regime. And the word “disgrace” he pins onto the two Muslim congresswomen.

Even Kevin McCarthy defended the congresswomen’s right to visit, last week during a visit to Israel, according to the Wall Street Journal. “I think it would be helpful for anyone that has an opinion to come,” he said.

 

It has never made sense to me that there are holocaust survivors in Israel who back an essentially genocidal position. That said, it’s an absolute verite that if those of differing views cannot visit the region and voice their opinions, nothing is going to get better. And of course, that’s just fine with Donald Trump. In fact, he’s encouraging it, out of some perverse desire to attack members of The Squad, because he believes that empowers him to win in 2020 — or something.
