In the wake of Israel’s announcement that it would bar anti-Semitic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering the country, Hollywood director and anti-Trump activist Rob Reiner demanded Thursday that “ignoramus” President Trump be impeached.
“‘To suggest that 2 duly elected Members of Congress be refused entry to Israel saying ‘they hate all Jewish people’ is just latest assault by this ignoramous on our Democracy. There are no straws. There are no camels’ backs. There is only Impeachment,” Reiner tweeted.
Reiner was referring to Trump’s tweet: “It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared today that the Reps would be barred because “it became clear that they were planning a campaign whose sole purpose was to strengthen the [BDS] boycott and negate Israel’s legitimacy.”
