By now you’re well aware that Benjamin Netanyahu has barred BDS-backing Reps Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from a planned visit to Israel, and that Tlaib said she won’t take advantage of a hardship exception Israel has offered so she can visit her grandmother. Meanwhile, CNN’s Dana Bash was stunned by Netanyahu’s decision to bar Omar & Tlaib that has Trump’s support:
Dana Bash is absolutely stunned at Israel's cruel unwillingness to offer goods, services, and accommodations in service of the advancement of a boycott against all goods, services, and accommodations from Israel. "I can't wrap my mind around it." #CNN pic.twitter.com/PxTTTjMFVH

Is it really that hard to understand?
@DanaBashCNN so if there was a boycott and divest group that targeted CNN, Bash would welcome them with open arms to her show

Just to be clear : she understands completely. She's merely pretending to not understand for the sake of the rage beast she helped to create.
