During her brief stint in Congress so far, Rep. Rashida Tlaib has demonstrated three things. First, she can curse like a longshoreman. Second, she can dish it out, but she can’t take it. And third, she can turn on the waterworks whenever she deems it convenient.
We saw an example of this first trait when, shortly after she was sworn in, she promised a group of loyalists, “We’re going to impeach this motherf*cker!” She was referring to Donald Trump.
The second and third traits have been on vivid display ever since she tried — and failed — to jet off to Israel with the sponsorship of a terrorist organization so that she and buddy Ilhan Omar could raise a stink over Israel’s inhumane treatment of Palestinians and call for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions of the Jewish state.

No sooner had Israel nixed the trip than suddenly a teary-eyed Tlaib publicly changed the purpose of her trip: “But, but — I just wanted to visit my dear old sity whom I otherwise might never see again.” Sity is Arabic for “grandmother.”
Never mind that Israel then said “yes” and Tlaib replied, “Nothing doing!”
Each day there has been another doleful tweet. One day, it’s a deep sigh over being denied one last opportunity to pick figs with sity. The next it’s a wistful I could be on a plane right now — which, of course, she could be if she chose to go.
And now, thanks to the diligent “news staff” at The Washington Post, we know more about Tlaib’s sity than anyone might care to. Maybe even a little more than the sympathetic crew at the WaPo might wish.
According to the Toronto Sun, Granny — whose name is Muftia — revealed her plan, now foiled, to “slaughter a sheep when Rashida arrived and prepare her favorite food, stuffed vine leave” [sic]. The kindly nonagenarian also had a word for Donald Trump: “May Allah ruin him.”
Now we know where Rep. Tlaib got her potty mouth.
