Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner swiftly brushed aside a Republican congressman’s inflammatory comments about Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Tuesday, briefly expressing shock when Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) said Tlaib hates Jews more than she “likes her grandmother” before ultimately moving on.
Green, who was part of a group of lawmakers who recently traveled to Israel, appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered Overtime to discuss Israel’s controversial decision to bar Reps. Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country.
Reacting to the two Muslim congresswomen’s recent press conference denouncing the travel restrictions, Green claimed everything they said in the presser was an “absolute lie” before taking aim at Tlaib, who cried while talking about her Palestinian grandmother.
