Tlaib ‘Triggered’ by Kavanaugh, Walks Out of SOTU Speech

Tlaib ‘Triggered’ by Kavanaugh, Walks Out of SOTU Speech

February 5, 2020

On Tuesday night, Rep. Rashida Tlaib told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that she walked out of President Trump’s State of the Union address because she was “triggered” by the mention of Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump mentioned the Supreme Court Justice as he recalled his confirmation of new judges. Kavanaugh, you will recall, was the target of an unsubstantiated, decades-old allegation of sexual assault, turning his confirmation hearing into a frenzied media circus.

“I think, you know, even the mention of Brett Kavanaugh for me is a trigger, just as a woman in America, the fact that he, you know, rightfully was accused and having an incredibly strong woman come before the public and the world and tell her story of sexual assault by this person that was appointed to the Supreme Court is just alone, that — I couldn’t stand still and not do anything about it, and I needed to walk away from that,” Tlaib rambled.

Kavanaugh was not “rightfully” accused. He was the victim of a grotesque, left-wing smear campaign.
