Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) (shown above, far right) was apparently a crazed lunatic long before her now-infamous and profanity-laced tirade in which she vowed to pursue the impeachment of President Donald Trump on her first day in office.
A video has surfaced — and it shows the Michigan Democrat being dragged out of a Trump campaign event in 2016 by Secret Service agents.
In the video, Tlaib can be seen repeatedly trying to break free of the grip of the security members who had to escort her from the facility.
She screamed, “You guys are crazy!” at supporters of the soon-to-be president — seemingly unaware she was the one being hauled off due to her own crazed behavior.
The congresswoman was joined by about a dozen women who tried to create a commotion during Trump’s speech at the Detroit Economic Club back in August 2016.

Tlaib wrote about the incident in a column for the Detroit Free Press: “I told Trump that ‘our children deserve better’ and I asked him to provide a better example to our kids,” she wrote.
“I implored him to read the U.S. Constitution. And then I was grabbed by several security personnel who physically moved me to the exit while I continued to express my concerns.”
Of course, none of this is represented on the video clip.
Her essay insinuates that she calmly “expressed concerns” about the Constitution and about being a better example to kids.
Not sure how “You guys are crazy!” even comes close to that, in our view.
Tlaib lied. Huh. Who could have possibly guessed?
It’s important to realize Tlaib was actually a state legislator at the time of this incident.
The people of her district in Michigan thought her worthy of holding public office — so much so that they sent her to Congress in the midterms in the fall of 2018.
And she didn’t let them down, demonstrating she was still that same unhinged individual on her very first day as a representative.
“When your son looks at you and says: ‘Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t,’” Tlaib told a crowd of adoring fans. “Because we’re going to go in there, and we’re going to impeach the motherf*****.”
What an embarrassment for the state of Michigan.
Trump’s response. Another video surfaced during the speech — in which Tlaib is shown having a meltdown.
It involves Trump’s response as she’s being carted off.
In that clip, the then-future president mocked Tlaib as being a bit low-energy.

“I will say the Bernie Sanders people had far more energy and spirit,” he joked. “I will say that.”
Tlaib said last month she gave every freshman in Congress a book on impeaching President Trump when she arrived in Washington, D.C. — showing just how deep her derangement runs, in our view. It also shows that on her one major platform as a congresswoman, she has failed miserably.
Watching Trump’s re-election in 2020 should be a lot of fun.
