As Twitchy readers know, Rashida Tlaib and the Left made a very big deal about her only wanting to visit her 90-year-old grandma (and pick figs!) when Israel banned her and Ilhan Omar from entering because of their support for BDS.
Welp, Israel decided Tlaib could go ahead and enter to visit her grandmother …
Yeah, she’s awful, but you knew that.
Anyway, the Israeli interior minister called her out on Twitter in a big way and it’s glorious:
חברת הקונגרס רשידה טליב, צייצה כעת שלא תגיע לישראל. אמש שלחה לי מכתב ובו ביקשה לאפשר לה לבקר את סבתה בת ה-90 ״כי זו יכולה להיות ההזדמנות האחרונה שלי לפגוש אותה״.
אישרתי זאת הומניטרית, אך מתברר כי זו הייתה פרובוקציה כדי להבאיש את ריחה של ישראל. שנאתה לישראל גוברת על אהבתה לסבתה

From the Israeli interior minister: “I authorized this humanitarian trip, but it turns out that it was a provocation to embarrass Israel. Her hatred for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother.” https://t.co/gNvQrrNRVN

Not a great look, Rashida.
Not a great look, Democrats.
But go ahead, keep blaming Trump, that’s worked out so well for all of you.

full text is "she sent me a letter asking to visit her 90 year old grandmother, saying that it could be her last time to do so. i have approved it, but apparently it was a provocation to make israel look bad. her hate for israel is stronger than her love for her grandmother"

Truth is she never had any intention of going, it was all about trying to make Israel an evil villain keeping her from seeing her possibly dying, grandmother.
And she overplayed her hand, badly.
