President Trump has bent over backward to create unity during this crisis to ensure we defeat it as quickly as possible.
One measure Trump took was to invoke a “National Day of Prayer” on Sunday.
After David Hogg, Parkland shooting survivor and now anti-gun activist, sent out a tweet saying “F*** a National day of prayer,” and Rep. Tlaib retweeted it (she has since deleted it).
Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic. Fuck a National day of prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.

After Tlaib sent out her retweet, the social media world came down on her rather quickly.
She eventually deleted her tweet, then tried to recover, tweeting…
➡️ Economic stimulus for individuals, families and our local communities.
➡️ Testing access for all.
➡️ Expanded paid sick leave and unemployment benefits.
➡️ Moratorium on water shutoffs, mortgage/rent payments and evictions.

First Reaction, True Reaction
Twitter has become the equivalent of truth serum for far too many people.
I have tried to make it a personal habit of putting my phone down for about five minutes when I am responding to a hot topic to ensure I don’t send out something I would regret later.
Tlaib would be wise to follow that advice, as would many other politicians.
Apologies by public figures are not something I generally take seriously.
Had the left celebrated her retweeting of Hogg’s tweet, she never would have backed down.
ONLY because she was called out did she issue an apology.
Tlaib is a thug in office, and nothing more.
If you recall, when she won her 2018 election, she became infamous for saying “We are going to impeach this Mother F***er.”
If these words were coming out of the mouth of a conservative, rest assured, there would be complete outrage.
Instead, the media simply ignores this and even the Democrats refuse to call her out on her foul-mouthed rants.
