Rep. Rashida Tlaib called out CNN on Monday for “hate mongering” in a headline on a story about her Holocaust comments.

“I guess it’s all about the clicks and not the truth. Another misleading & disappointing headline that just feeds into the hate mongering,” the Michigan Democrat said on Twitter.

The article goes on to state the following:

Tlaib’s criticism was in response to a CNN article titled: “Rashida Tlaib stands by Israel and Holocaust comments amid criticism.” The congresswoman, who is the first Palestinian American woman in Congress, has faced fierce backlash for an interview she gave to Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast.

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said.

“And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy, and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away, and it was forced on them,” Tlaib added.
