Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michiagan) is under fire after new video surfaced of the Congresswoman flouting CDC guidelines and dancing maskless indoors amid a large crowd during a gathering in Michigan. This, despite her recent scolding of Senator Rand Paul for his recent comments on mask-wearing.
In the video, Tlaib is seen dancing among a large group of guests, holding hands and hugging the members of the crowd, apparently without any regard to respecting guidelines on social distancing.
According to the person that published the video, the event happened on Sunday, at a Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, in Dearborn, Michigan. Dearborn is located in Wayne County, one of the counties designated as an “orange zone” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
That means that the CDC rates the county as one where the risk of transmission is substantial, which is why it requires mask-wearing at indoor gatherings, for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.
What’s even worse for Tlaib is that the video came out the same day that she criticized Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for urging his followers to “resist” CDC guidelines, including mask mandates.
“The KY Senator is throwing a tantrum as his state is being swallowed whole by this virus, again. People are getting sick and dying,” Tlaib wrote.

“We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns and the harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no.” Rand Paul stated.
Tlaib disagrees with Paul with her words. But her actions say something else.
Tlaib is one of the members of the controversial “Squad” a group of six far-left members of the House of Representatives, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. She is on the record for wanting to defund security and border patrol agencies, including the DHS and ICE.
