Apparently, Rep. Rashida Tlaib was a crazed lunatic long before her famous profanity-laced tirade vowing to pursue impeachment of President Trump on her first day in office.
A video has surfaced of the Michigan Democrat being forcibly dragged out of a Trump campaign event in 2016 by Secret Service agents. The video is every bit as unhinged as you might expect and then some.
In the video, Tlaib can be seen repeatedly trying to break free of the grip of security members escorting her from the facility. She screams, “You guys are crazy!” at supporters of the soon-to-be President, seemingly unaware that she’s the one being hauled off due to her crazed behavior.
The congresswoman was joined by about a dozen women who tried to create a commotion during Trump’s speech at the Detroit Economic Club in August 2016.

Tlaib wrote about the incident in a column for the Detroit Free Press:
I told Trump that “our children deserve better” and I asked him to provide a better example to our kids. I implored him to read the U.S. Constitution. And then I was grabbed by several security personnel who physically moved me to the exit while I continued to express my concerns.
Of course, none of this bears out based on the video clip. Her essay insinuates she calmly ‘expressed my concerns’ about the Constitution and being a better example to kids. Not sure how ‘You guys are crazy!’ even comes close to that.
Tlaib lied. Huh. Who could have possibly guessed?
Impeach the MFer
It’s important to realize Tlaib was actually a state legislator at the time of this incident. The people of her district in Michigan thought her worthy of holding public office.
So much so that they sent her on to Congress in 2018.
And she didn’t let them down, demonstrating she was still that unhinged nut case she was in the 2016 video on her very first day as a Representative.
“When your son looks at you and says: ‘Momma, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t,’” Tlaib told a crowd of adoring fans. “Because we’re going to go in there, and we’re going to impeach the motherf***er.”

What an absolute embarrassment for the state of Michigan.
Trump’s Response Was Epic
Another video surfacing during the speech in which Tlaib had a meltdown involves Trump’s response as she’s being carted off.
In that clip, the future President mocks the terrorist-sympathizing Tlaib as being a bit low-energy.

“I will say the Bernie Sanders people had far more energy and spirit,” he joked. “I will say that.”
Tlaib said last month that she gave every freshman in Congress a book on impeaching President Trump when she arrived in Washington, D.C., showing just how deep her derangement runs.
It also shows that on her one major platform as a congresswoman she has failed miserably. Watching his re-election in 2020 should be a lot of fun.
