Radical Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been engulfed in countless scandals since she became a member of Congress a year ago.
But things just went from bad to worse for the Michigan lawmaker after she was arrested this week for participating in a ridiculous stunt.
On Friday afternoon, Tlaib was arrested at the Detroit Metro Airport for taking part in a protest with local airline workers that disrupted the airport.
Tlaib and several others were arrested by police.
According to photos of the event, hospitality workers’ union UNITE HERE was joined by Tlaib and carried signs that vouched for the employees of Delta Air Lines.
They were demanding better healthcare coverages along with higher wages.
Tlaib was reportedly only arrested briefly before being released soon after.

“We won’t stop until we get #fairwages & #healthcare. These courageous people got arrested tonight at DTW b/c they believe workers deserve human dignity. Shame on you @Delta for leaving workers behind and letting them live in poverty,” Tlaib tweeted after her detention.

“These workers are suffering and living under unimaginable conditions all because Delta wants to make more profits on the backs of the poor. The airline catering workers are desperate for a better quality of life and put their bodies on the line in their fight against the exorbitant corporate greed by the airlines denying them of their right to a living wage and good healthcare,” Tlaib said in a statement to The Hill.
Tlaib is well-known for her controversial comments and actions since becoming a member of Congress a year ago.
Back in October, Tlaib was caught on camera admitting Democrats’ real plan for President Donald Trump’s cabinet officials.
During a town hall meeting, Tlaib told her constituents that Democrats held a closed-door meeting to determine how to arrest Trump administration officials who did not comply with congressional subpoenas.
The clip is ridiculous.
Before that, Israel barred Rep Ilhan Omar and Tlaib from entering the Jewish state, citing the lawmakers’ support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement and countless anti-Semitic comments.
Tlaib stunned many late last month after she claimed thinking about the holocaust gives her a “calming feeling.”
Tlaib said the Holocaust — where millions of innocent people were beaten, tortured, and murdered — gives her a “calming feeling” because her Palestinian ancestors provided a “safe haven” for Jewish victims of the tragedy.
Prior to that, the Michigan lawmaker said she feels “more Palestinian in Congress” than American.
Hours after Democrats took control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2018, Tlaib launched into a profanity-laced diatribe against President Donald Trump and voted “impeach the motherf**ker.”
