Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib lost her mind Thursday at a rally for climate change outside the White House, where a few hundred people gathered in the hazardous air to blame DC’s haze - smogged up by distant smoke from Canadian wildfires raging largely thanks to forest mismanagement - on man-made global warming.

During the event, Tlaib just couldn’t resist the chance to scream into the microphone to the cheers of the lemmings in the crowd, ranting that pipeline projects aren’t related to the national deficit and other nonsensical garbage.

"You got right-wing people saying 'well, China got this all the time and India and these other,” Tlaib unintelligibly hollered. “What are you talking about?! That is not how you're supposed to be talking about it!”

I couldn’t agree more - what the hell are you talking about?

Oh, but it didn’t stop there. The Michigan congresswoman then turned her vitriol toward the Mountain Valley Pipeline, a project that was included as part of the deal struck between congressional Republicans and Democrats to raise the debt ceiling. The pipeline, which is already about 94% complete, will transport natural gas across roughly 300 miles from West Virginia into Virginia with tentative plans to expand into North Carolina.

But apparently, Tlaib can’t understand how energy independence might affect America’s economy or impact federal spending.

"What the hell does a pipeline have to do with reducing the deficit?! It’s bullshit! It's Bullshit! Bullshit! I call bullshit!” she screamed.

A better question would be how congressional Democrats’ Biden-backed “Inflation Reduction Act” had anything to do with reducing inflation, a question even Democrats on the Hill couldn’t answer while touting the bill’s copious trillion-dollar green energy projects. 

While we're over here discussing whether we should put age limits on lawmakers, perhaps we should also question whether passing a basic civics and economics quiz should be a requirement to serve in Congress.
