....No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2020
Far-left Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) apparently took issue with Trump’s announcement, taking to her Twitter account to promote a vulgar message denigrating the National Day of Prayer from Parkland school shooting survivor and anti-gun rights advocate David Hogg.
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.— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 15, 2020
Tlaib retweeted the message to her nearly 1 million followers.
Seemingly addressing backlash over the re-post, Tlaib again took to Twitter to backtrack, telling followers she has “been praying through this all” and was “not” attacking prayer.
“Let me be clear as someone who has been praying through this all & as someone who attended the National Prayer Breakfast,” she wrote Monday night. “My retweet was not to be an attack on prayer. It was to bring attention to the need for meaningful action to combat this public health crisis.”
Tlaib stormed out of this year's State of the Union because she was triggered by the mention of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's name.
