Video footage has surfaced showing ‘Squad’ member Rep. Rashida Tlaib dancing maskless with over a hundred people at a crowded indoor wedding.
This also took place in a so-called COVID “orange” zone.
Tlaib was immediately criticized as a hypocrite who believes the new mask guidance does not apply to her.
Fox News reports the event took place in Wayne County, Michigan where COVID-19 cases are very high.
On the same day, Tlaib actually attacked Republican Senator Rand Paul for telling Americans to resist mask mandates and other extreme efforts from the CDC to remove freedoms from Americans.
Rand Paul said, “It’s time for us to resist. They can’t arrest all of us… We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again. No one should follow the CDC.”
Tlaib shared the video and replied, “The KY Senator is throwing a tantrum as his state is being swallowed whole by this virus, again. People are getting sick and dying. 98 counties in Kentucky have a high incidence rate of COVID-19. He needs to put politics aside, and put people first. Start resisting the virus.”
Watch Tlaib for yourself:
Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib partied last night with 100+ maskless people. Dems want your kids stuck in masks at school ALL DAY while they party maskless with their friends. Do not comply! Don’t give 1 more inch. In 2022 we WILL defeat the tyrants! Chip in: https://t.co/FGvUL6PziQ pic.twitter.com/6lg71dtv2f

More from Biz Pac Review:
Tlaib’s flaunting of CDC guidelines also comes one day after former President Obama held his 60th birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard with hundreds of maskless guests under a massive tent. The guest list was originally 500+ but was slightly pared down and the event went on despite the allegations of hypocrisy and the ruling by the CDC.
The original video footage of the wedding and Tlaib dancing maskless was taken by Bassam Saleh, which is a band from Dearborn, Michigan. They were performing at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. Tlaib can be seen dancing, holding hands, and hugging in the crowded affair.
It is unknown why the Michigan Democrat was at the event or how many were vaccinated in the crowd.
Tlaib has previously been photographed wearing two masks at once. She has ranted and raved about how deadly and contagious COVID is and that mandates must be reimplemented.
Michigan has seen a surge in cases over the last few weeks. The seven-day average jumped to 1,061 cases on Sunday compared with 672 cases on August 1 and 415 cases the previous week.
Tlaib was harshly criticized on social media:
Hey @RashidaTlaib you gonna explain why you’re out partying maskless in defiance of CDC guidelines or can you admit between this & Obama’s party that this is about controlling people? In 2022 you’ll have to deal with reps like me in the majority holding you accountable. Be ready.

Two Americas. One open for the oligarchs and their enforcers. One locked down for the rest of us.
