Barely two weeks into office, controversy finds Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) yet again.
A private dinner and friendly photo op with Twitter user @Resistance48 appeared in her timeline – there’s just one problem: @Resistance48 has openly praised Hezbollah, a group recognized by the State Department as a terrorist organization since 1995.
The U.S. government holds Hezbollah responsible for butchering Americans in Lebanon throughout the 1980s, including bombing a U.S. Marines barracks, killing 258.
@Resistance48 also has a tiny problem with Israel.
See below! (Twitchy)
I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country. #Palestine #TweetYourThobe #RashidaTlaib pic.twitter.com/caJPN12ODX

israel does not have a right to exist. The terrorist entity is illegal and has no basis to exist other than a delusional ISIS like ideology.

Inviting a Hezbollah fanboy to your private dinner is a bold move pic.twitter.com/Z21htJ2bnh

Or how about his equating Israel with Nazism?
Wow. Went Godwin.https://t.co/BlQdA0EIJx

So it’s more than Rep. Tlaib’s cursing that’s at issue:
Tlaib showed a lot of foresight in registering as a Democrat so she wouldn’t have to be asked about this nonstop.
I am enjoying how stupid Tlaib keeps making her apologists look though. https://t.co/OhDOvrnHGs

Friendly reminder, Rep. Tlaib: Two-thirds of Europe’s Jews died in the Holocaust.
