Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) got testy with Fox Business Reporter Hillary Vaughn over a question about a rally in her home district where anti-Israel protesters chanted “Death to America” and called for the eradication of Israel.

The rally in question, which took place in Dearborn, Michigan, featured a speaker named Tarek Bazzi, who is affiliated with the Hadi Institute. He said: “We have been asked in the past why our protests on the International Al-Quds Day are so anti-America. Why don’t we just focus on Israel and not talk so much about America? Gaza has shown the entire world why their protests are so anti-America. Because it’s the United States government that provides the funds for all of the atrocities that we just heard about.”

Attendees at the rally responded to him by shouting, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!”

Vaughn approached Tlaib in a hallway on Capitol Hill, asking several times whether She would respond to the chants. At first, the Michigan Congresswoman said she wouldn’t talk to anyone from Fox.


Congresswoman Tlaib —” Vaughn began, but Tlaib interrupted before she could even get the question out.

“I don’t talk to Fox News! I don’t talk to Fox News!” she insisted.

“At a rally … in your district —” Vaughn tried again, but Tlaib pushed back.

“I’m not talking to Fox News.,” she said again.

“People were chanting ‘death to America.’ Do you condemn?” Vaughn asked.

“I do not talk to Fox News,” Tlaib repeated.

“But do you condemn chants of death to America?” Vaughn asked once more.

“I don’t talk to people that use racist tropes,” Tlaib said then, suggesting that Vaughn’s network was guilty of that.

Vaughn pressed again, asking, “Why can’t you just say whether or not you condemn —”

But Tlaib interrupted her again, saying, “Because I don’t talk to Fox News.”

“— people chanting ‘death to America?'” Vaughn completed her thought, then asked, “Why are you afraid to talk to Fox?”


“Fox News is not nice,” Tlaib claimed. “Listen, using racist tropes towards my community is what Fox News is about and I don’t talk to Fox News.”

Vaughn tried one more tack, noting that some might see the “death to America” chants as racist.

“Is ‘death to America’ racist?” Is chanting ‘death to America’ racist?” she asked.

“Never talk to Fox News,” Tlaib said again, adding, “I’m talking about your guys’s racist tropes. You know, you guys are — you guys know exactly what you do. And I know you’re Islamophobic, but you guys gotta go deal with it on your own selves, not going to use me.”
