As Twitchy told you, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer had the gall to demand that Republicans apologize to Rashida Tlaib for calling her out over her despicable and historically illiterate remarks about the Holocaust and Israel. Not to be outdone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing the same:
Republicans’ desperate attempts to smear @RepRashida & misrepresent her comments are outrageous. President @realDonaldTrump & House GOP should apologize to Rep. Tlaib & the American people for their gross misrepresentations.

What about Rashida Tlaib’s “gross misrepresentations” about Palestinian Arabs’ treatment of the Jews in Palestine? Nancy’s choosing sides — and she has chosen poorly.
This ain't it.

Yeah, they totally misrepresented her comments by pointing people to the tape of her own comments. https://t.co/8LF85bp5tk

Apologize for what?

The only one who should be apologizing is Rep. Tlaib.

And the Democrats and media who leaped to her defense instead of giving her the condemnation she deserved.
They do this because most of the media let's them (CNN gets props for calling her out today.) I wonder how long this can go on. https://t.co/OYioWY2QI0

Nancy, don’t try to spin this. Be better.

She can’t be better. She can keep finding ways to make it worse, though.
Anti-semitism only has one common interpretation, and many of house members use it.
You refuse to condemn it. It is a blot on your party.
It will remain so until you expel it.
