Trump blasts ‘crazed lunatic’ Tlaib, as Turning Point USA crowd offers new take on ‘The Squad’

MAGA hat-wearing students at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit have appropriated the name given the four radical-left freshman Democrats in Congress.

Forget about “the squad” of progressive lawmakers hating on America, students at the invite-only conference taking place this week in Washington, D.C. were seen on video chanting “One Squad Under God!”

“1400+ students from all around the country chanting ‘One Squad Under God’ while President Trump is speaking at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit. This is the only squad I’ll ever support!” tweeted Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students for Trump.

Just before the chant broke out, President Trump said, “Above all else, we know this, that in America we don’t worship government, we worship God.”

The students brought a smile to his face and when they finished, he made reference to his efforts to expose the four freshman lawmakers for their contempt for the U.S.

“No, I’m not disavowing that,” Trump said. “They’d like me… ‘Would you disavow that’ — No, thank you.”

“The squad,” he added dismissively, while shaking his head.

While addressing the students, the president would also go after Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., the squad member who called him a “motherf–ker” her first week in office.

Pulling no punches, he called Tlaib a “crazed lunatic.”

The remark coming in response to a video circulating this week of Tlaib being tossed out of a Trump campaign event in 2016.

“There’s no way she stands for the values of the people of Michigan,” Trump said, as he pronounced her name as “Taleep.”

 

“But I watched her this morning, she’s vicious. She’s like a crazed lunatic,” he added. “She’s screaming, this is before she got into Congress. Who elected her?”

“She’s screaming like a total lunatic at one of our rallies,” Trump continued. “It’s like, I’m giving a little rally and she starts screaming — and this is not a sane person folks.”

Trump accurately noted that “this is what we are up against.”

“The Democrats, I guess, are forced to embrace her. I call it AOC plus three,” he said.

The incident Trump recalled occurred in August 2016, when security had to forcibly removed Tlaib from the Detroit Economic Club, where then-Republican presidential nominee Trump was speaking.

Resisting as security ushered her toward the door, an out-of-control Tlaib screamed at the participants, “You guys are crazy!”

This isn’t the first time the lawmaker has lost her composure, with another incident occurring after she was elected to Congress.

Tlaib was among the group of far-left Democratic lawmakers who visited a number of migrant detention centers earlier this month. She was speaking at a press conference when she decided to engage with unruly protesters.

“I will out-love your hate,” the Democrat screamed, angrily pounding on the podium as she lectured about love.

She then moved to defend Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, and lost it altogether.

“And I’ll tell you this, Veronica Escobar is the best goddamn… Congress member from this district and you all can say whatever you want,” she railed, almost incoherent in her rage.
