Another way to put it would be “meet the most obtuse member of the Squad.”
Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has found a perfect district for herself. However, her views are radioactive for Democrats in Congress who represent swing states and purplish districts.

Even human traffickers, Swan asks her? Well, no, maybe not them, says Tlaib.
Did she read her own bill?
