'I'll Boo': Tlaib Boos Hillary Clinton's 'Nobody Likes' Sanders Remarks at 2020 Dems' Campaign Event

Share

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) didn’t refrain from offering her view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a campaign event for 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

Tlaib was among another Democratic freshmen lawmakers who is known as “the squad,” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), at Friday night’s event. They were also joined by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) — the three Congresswomen have endorsed Sanders.

The three lawmakers were attending Sanders’ first “caucus concert” event in Iowa on Friday night. When they were wrapping up the discussion, activist and moderator of the discussion Dionna Langford mentioned Clinton’s remarks claiming “nobody likes” Sanders.

“We’re not gonna boo, we’re not gonna boo,” Langford said, adding, “We’re classy here.”

However, Tlaib — who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump — interjected and said, “I’ll boo. Boo.”

Tlaib added, “You all know I can’t be quiet. No, we’re going to boo. That’s alright, the haters will shut up on Monday when we win.”

Watch the video below:

The booing follows shortly after Clinton recently told The Hollywood Reporter that she stands by comments she made in an upcoming documentary, where she said of Sanders, “Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it,” as IJR previously reported.

The former secretary of state’s remarks caused push back from some 2020 Democratic hopefuls, who said, “It’s time to grow up, you know? This isn’t high school.” Sanders though told reporters after Clinton’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “On a good day, my wife likes me.”

Clinton, however, doesn’t seem to be backing down from her comments criticizing Sanders, as she also told the Los Angeles Times she “absolutely” stands by them.

Tlaib’s booing also sparked reaction on Twitter:

Tlaib’s reaction to Clinton comes ahead of the Iowa Democratic caucuses on Monday. Additionally, the Democratic National Committee announced on Friday new debate rules for the Democratic debate on Feb. 19, which will likely bring Michael Bloomberg to the debate stage.
