AOC’s theatrics in the wake of the January 6 riots have been Oscar-worthy, to be sure. But her fellow Squad member Rashida Tlaib’s been no slouch in her own right.
Check out Tlaib’s turn at the mic:

Rashida Tlaib may not have been there, per se, but she feels like she was. And that’s what matters.
What an act. Amazing.

What does it say about the character of the United States that you can behave this way in Congress and still hope to be re-elected? What does it communicate about us to our enemies? https://t.co/7HBjDM0j1p

But oh well. At least she can take comfort in knowing that she has black, Muslim, and LGBTQ people on her staff. She may be terrified, but she’s still woke AF.
