‘The Five’ react to freshman Dems blasting Trump, Netanyahu


RADICAL MEMBERS OF THE SQUAD SLAMMING ISRAEL MOMENTS AGO. THIS COMES AS TOP DEMOCRATS REPORTEDLY THREATENED TO RETALIATE AFTER RASHIDA TLAIB AND ILHAN OMAR WERE BANNED FROM ENTERING THE COUNTRY. THE WHITE HOUSE FIRING BACK AGAINST HOUSE DEMOCRATS PLANS TO PUNISH THE U.S. AND ISRAELI AMBASSADORS WITH LEGISLATIVE ACTION. TLAIB AND OMAR WERE DENIED ACCESS TO ISRAEL OVER SUPPORT OF A BOYCOTT MOVEMENT AND ISRAEL GRANTED TLAIB ACCESS ON HUMANITARIAN GROUNDS AND SHE TURNED HER DOWN. OMAR ALSO TAKING A SWIPE AT PRESIDENT TRUMP.>>WE KNOW DONALD TRUMP WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO USE THIS ISSUE TO PIT MUSLIMS AND JEWISH AMERICANS AGAINST EACH OTHER. THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY AND THE JEWISH COMMUNITY ARE BEING OTHERRED AND MADE IN TO THE BOGEYMAN BY THIS ADMINISTRATION.>>Jesse: OMAR ALSO UNDER FIRE FOR SHARING A CONTROVERSIAL CARTOON ON SOCIAL MEDIA BY AN ANTI-SEMITIC ARTIST. THIS IS PRESIDENT TRUMP LASTING THE PAIR, SAYING THEY HAVE SUCH DISDAIN FOR ISRAEL. DANA, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AGAIN ON ITS HEELS OVER ANTI-SEMITISM AND AGAIN LOOKS LIKE THE FACE OF THE PARTY AS THE SQUAD, IS THIS WHAT NANCY PELOSI WANTS?>>Dana: I PROBABLY SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN SURPRISED THEY HAD A PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY BUT I’M SLIGHTLY SURPRISED BECAUSE I THINK THEY COULD’VE TURNED THE PAGE, GET IT BEHIND THEM, MOVE ON TO DO SOMETHING ELSE BUT BY HAVING A PRESS CONFERENCE TODAY AND TRYING TO SHOWCASE THAT THEY JUST ENSURED THE WHITE HOUSE IS PROBABLY GOING TO RESPOND AGAIN IN EVERY DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE IS GOING UP TO ANSWER IT AND THE PRESIDENT’S GOING SAY SOMETHING AND THEN WE COULD GO ANOTHER WEEK TALKING ABOUT THIS AND I — MY GUT INSTINCT IS THAT THEY ARE NOT WINNING THIS ARGUMENT. THEY MIGHT THINK THEY ARE WINNING THE ARGUMENT. IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE IT.>>Jesse: WHAT DOES IT SAY THAT THEY DO THINK THEY ARE WINNING THE ARGUMENT?>>Greg: I THINK THEY HAVE LEARNED IN THIS TRUMP ERA THAT CONFLICT CREATES THE NEWS. WE CARRIED THIS PRESS CONFERENCE. WE WOULDN’T HAVE PROBABLY CARRIED A PRESS CONFERENCE LIKE THAT A COUPLE YEARS AGO. I DON’T THINK WE WOULD, WOULD W WE? MINOR POLITICIANS IN MINNESOTA, IT BECOMES A NATIONAL NEWS AND THEY LOVE IT. IT’S GREAT FOR THEIR BRAND. I THINK THE LEFT IS IN EFFECT BECAUSE HOW MANY PEOPLE WHO NEVER KNEW WHAT THE BDS MOVEMENT WAS NOW KNOW ABOUT IT. IT SOUNDS LIKE A MEDICAL DISORDER THAT’S ADVERTISED ON CABLE. BUT IT’S LIKE NOW I WATCHED MEDIA WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT THE BDS MOVEMENT. THEY HAVE TO LOOK DOWN AND THEY GO THE BDS MOVEMENT STANDS FOR UH, WHAT DOES IT STAND FOR? BOYCOTT INVESTMENT, SANCTION. IN THE TRUMP ERA, WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT STUFF THAT WE PROBABLY DIDN’T LEARN ABOUT BEFORE AND I DON’T THINK IT HELPS THEM BECAUSE ONCE PEOPLE LEARN ABOUT THE BDS MOVEMENT, THEY SEE THAT ITS ORIGINS ARE ANTI-SEMITIC, MUCH LIKE THE CARTOON. THE CARTOON WASN’T VERY GOOD BUT THE GUY WAS A CONTESTANT AND A HOLOCAUST DENIAL CONTEST. THAT’S NOT A GOOD BOOK FOR THE SQUAD. CAN I GO BACK TO THE POINT ABOUT THE NEW RULES OF ENGAGEMENT? BEFORE TRUMP, THIS WAS A ONE-WAY STREET. THE FAR LEFT ANTI-SEMITIC SANCTIONS COULD WAGE WAR ON ISRAEL AND YOU HAVE TO GRIN AND BEAR IT. NOW THERE’S PUSHBACK AND WHEN YOU PUSH BACK THE ACCUSE YOU OF BEING THE BULLY.>>Jesse: IT’S NOT CONSERVATIVES. BILL MAHER, PRETTY LIBERAL, HE CAME OUT TO THE BDS MOVEMENT WAS GARBAGE AND TOOK A PRETTY HARD POSITION AGAINST THE SQUAD AND THEN RASHIDA TLAIB CAME BACK AND SAID MAYBE WE SHOULD BOYCOTT DELMAR.>>Juan: LET ME SEE THEY ARE WINNING THIS ARGUMENT. I THINK SO.>>Jesse: WHAT EVIDENCE IS THERE?>>Juan: I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY QUESTION THAT THERE’S BEEN A BACKLASH. REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS, JEWISH PEOPLE, MUSLIMS, THEY ARE ALL SAYING THAT ISRAEL SHOULD’VE LET THEM IN AND DON’T FORGET, NETANYAHU SAID HE WANTED TO LET THEM IN UNTIL PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED AT HIM.>>Jesse: PELOSI HAPPY WITH THIS?>>Juan: I THINK VERY HAPPY. TO DOUBLE DOWN ON GREG’S POINT, IT MAKES MORE PEOPLE AWARE OF THE BOYCOTT DIVESTMENT AND SANCTIONS MOVEMENT THAN EVER BEFORE.>>Jesse: AND THAT’S A GOOD THING?>>Juan: I DISAGREE WITH IT BUT I MUST SAY SUDDENLY EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT IT. I THINK THIS IS KILLING THE D.C. CONSENSUS OF SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL. I THINK IT’S BECOMING POLITICALLY POLARIZED, LIKE SO MUCH. I REMEMBER WHEN PEOPLE WERE UPSET THAT BENJAMIN NETANYAHU WAS INVITED BY THE REPUBLICANS TO COME TO CONGRESS AND CRITICIZED PRESIDENT OBAMA. BUT IT WENT BY. NOW THIS HAS BEEN DOUBLED DOWN BY TRUMP SO THAT NOW EVERYTHING IS SO POLITICAL ABOUT ISRAEL AND DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS FOR THE LONGEST TIME, LOOK AT OUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT, MILITARY SUPPORT, PRO-ISRAEL. AND NOW NETANYAHU AT TRUMP’S BEHEST IS DIVIDING IT.>>Greg: CALLING IT AN OCCUPATION IS KIND OF –>>Jesse: TO THE ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER IS THE ONE BEING DIVISIVE, NOT THE SQUAD?>>Katie: I AGREE WITH JUAN ON ONE THING. IT DOES PUSH THE DEMOCRATIC DEMOCRATIC PARTY FURTHER AWAY FROM ISRAEL BECAUSE DEMOCRATS ARE TAKING THE SIDE OF RASHIDA TLAIB AND ILHAN OMAR INSTEAD OF A LONG-STANDING ALLY AND YOU COULD SAY THEY ARE AMERICANS, THEY ARE CONGRESSWOMEN THAT’S WHY WERE DOING IT BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE RECORD AND WHY THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED IN THE COUNTRY, THE GROUP THEY ARE GOING WITH CELEBRATE SUICIDE BOMBERS WHO NOT ONLY KILL ISRAELIS BUT ALSO AMERICANS. THEY GLORIFIED TERRORISTS WHO KILLED CHILDREN. THAT’S ONE REASON THEY ARE LEFT OUT. DURING A PRESS CONFERENCE AND THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE GOING FOR, THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT SO MUCH MISINFORMATION. THEY ARE ACTING LIKE IT’S ABOUT BENJAMIN NETANYAHU WHEN IT’S ABOUT BDS WHICH IS A MOVEMENT THAT’S BEEN AROUND FOR FAR LONGER THAN ONE POLITICAL PARTY EITHER IN THE U.S. OR IN ISRAEL. IT’S ABOUT NOT ALLOWING THE COUNTRY TO EXIST. RASHIDA TLAIB TALKS ABOUT THE WALLS AND ISRAEL NOT BEING EFFECTIVE. ACTUALLY, THEY ARE, KEEPING SUICIDE BOMBERS OUT OF ISRAEL AND SO THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS THAT THEY’RE PUTTING ON THE TABLE THEY DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT TERMS OF HUMAN RIGHTS THAT DON’T DRIVE WITH THE LEFTIST NARRATIVE. JUST TODAY THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY BANNED ALL LGBTQ ACTIVITY IN THE WEST BANK WHILE ISRAEL HAS ONE OF THE LARGEST GAY RIGHTS PARADES IN THE WORLD. THEY’RE GOING TO FIGURE OUT, DEMOCRATS, WHETHER THEY SUPPORT REAL HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST WHICH COME WITH ISRAEL, INCLUDING FOR ARAB ISRAELIS, OR WHETHER THEY SUPPORT TWO CONGRESSWOMEN WHO ARE ASSOCIATED WITH GROUP TO CELEBRATE SUICIDE BOMBINGS. AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS.>>Jesse: WAS IN THIS EXPOSED AS A STUNT WHEN THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT LET TLAIB COME IN AND SHE SAID NO.>>Greg: USING THE GRANDMOTHER AS A PROP. SHE WROTE IN A LETTER THIS MAY BE THE LAST TIME I SEE MY GRANDMOTHER AND THEN SHE DECIDES NOT TO SEE HER GRANDMOTHER. BUT SHE FINDS TIME TO POST THIS OTHER CARTOON. I’M GOING TO SAY I DON’T TRUST HER. I DON’T TRUST ANYBODY THAT WOULD USE THEIR IN SUCH A MANNER. SHE SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO HER GRANDMOTHER. DANA. RIGHT?>>Dana: THE TWO OF THEM COULD’VE GONE ON THE TRIP THE WEEK BEFORE WITH 51 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS. 30 REPUBLICANS, 21 DEMOCRATS. THEY COULD’VE ALL GONE TOGETHER. FROM WHAT I HEARD FROM THAT TRIP, ALL VIEWS WERE EXPRESSED IN THESE VIEWS COULD HAVE BEEN.>>Juan: KEVIN McCARTHY, LEADER OF THE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE SAID YEAH, THEY SHOULD’VE BEEN LEADING. EVERYBODY SHOULD GO.>>Dana: I AM SAYING THEY SHOULD’VE GONE WITH THE WHOLE GROUP.>>Juan: I DON’T PICK THEY HAVE TO GO BY ANYBODY’S –>>Greg: AREN’T WE PAYING FOR IT? IT WOULD BE CHEAPER AS A GROUP.>>Dana: THIS GROUP.>>Katie: THEY SHOULD GO WITH THE GROUP –>>Juan: ALWAYS BEEN ALLOWED TO GO. OUR PRESIDENT TELLING OF THE NATION’S PRESIDENT. DON’T LET MY POLITICAL OPPONENTS IN. NOW THIS EFFORT TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THE AMBASSADORS, THEY ARE JUST PROXIES FOR NETANYAHU AND TRUMP.>>Katie: CAN I SAY ONE MORE THING ABOUT THE AID POINT THAT ILHAN OMAR AND RASHIDA TLAIB ARE SAYING WE GIVE ISRAEL $3 BILLION IN AID. AID TO ISRAEL IS AN INVESTMENT BECAUSE IN RETURN THEY GIVE OF TECHNOLOGY, COUNTERTERRORISM OPERATIONS, THE PALESTINIANS USE OUR TAXPAYER MONEY TO PAY TERRORISTS AND THEIR FAMILIES TO TERRORISTS AND THEIR FAMILIES TK TERRORISTS AND THEIR FAMILIES TL AMERICANS AND ISRAELIS. THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE. ONCE THE RETURN ON INVESTMENT WHEN IT COMES TO ISRAEL? WE GET A LOT IN RETURN FOR THE AID WE’RE GIVING THEM.>>Jesse: MAYBE THEY DIDN’T GO TO ISRAEL WITH THE OTHER DELEGATION. RUBY THEY HAD IN THE PARMA THEY COULDN’T CHANGE. THERE SOMETIMES CONFLICT.>>Juan: CRITICIZED AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT IN OUR COUNTRY.
