Rashida Tlaib, newly elected Congresswoman, covered herself in the Palestinian flag during her victory party.
Tlaib, along with Ilhan Omar, are the first muslim women elected to Congress.
Tlaib will be sworn in next month. Like several other muslims who have been elected, Rashida will be sworn in on the quran. Going one step further, Rashida has announced that she will wear a Palestinian thobe as she’s being sworn into Congress.
This is History. Watch every second of this.— Khaled Beydoun (@KhaledBeydoun) November 7, 2018
