Tlaib Issues Statement After Taking Heat for Booing Mention of Hillary Clinton

“Squad” member and lawmaker Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) has issued a statement after taking heat from some members of her party for booing the mention of Hillary Clinton at a recent pro-Bernie Sanders event.

In the video clip below you can see the moderator mention Hillary Clinton.

The audience begins to boo, and the moderator says “we’re not going to boo… we’re not going to boo.”

Tlaib then responds by saying “I’ll boo. Boo…You all know I can’t be quiet.”  The haters will shut up on Monday when we win” prompting big laughs from Rep. Jayapal and Omar next to her.


Tlaib has now walked back booing Hillary Clinton, tweeting:

My statement regarding last night:

“I am so incredibly in love with the movement that our campaign of has created. This makes me protective over it and frustrated by attempts to dismiss the strength and diversity of our movement. (1/4)

“However, I know what is at stake if we don’t unify over one candidate to beat Trump and I intend to do everything possible to ensure that Trump does not win in 2020. (2/4)

“In this instance, I allowed my disappointment with Secretary Clinton’s latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me. You all, my sisters-in-service on stage, and our movement deserve better. (3/4)

“I will continue to strive to come from a place of love and not react in the same way of those who are against what we are building in this country. This is about building a just and equitable future for my two boys, children across the country, and future generations.” (4/4)
