A video has resurfaced showing progressive Representative Rashida Tlaib meltdown as she interrupted a then-candidate Trump speech at the Detroit economic club.
At the time Tlaib was not yet elected and was just an activist.
According to The Daily Wire:
The incident happened on August 8, 2016, as Trump outlined his economic policy in a speech at the Detroit Economic Club.
In the video clip that was widely circulated on Twitter, Tlaib can be seen screaming at everyone in attendance: “You guys are crazy!”
An audience member who recorded the incident yelled back at her: “You’re an animal, get a job!”
A different angle of the incident shows Trump calmly waiting for Tlaib to be physically removed by security before continuing on with his speech.

Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to weigh in on the recently surfaced video:
Crooked called us “Deplorables.” Tlaib calls us “Crazy.” In reality we just love our country, want every American—no matter their race, religion or socioeconomic status—to have a safe & prosperous life & expect our leaders to put America First. It’s simple pic.twitter.com/qUzyfE5z5o

President Trump has even responded to some of Tlaib’s statements on Twitter:
Democrat Rep. Tlaib is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust. She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people. Can you imagine what would happen if I ever said what she said, and says?

Tlaib has yet to respond publically to the resurfaced video and no apologies for her actions have been issued.
