Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) at the weekend retweeted a post on Twitter which said in part “F**k a National day of prayer,” in relation to President Trump’s call for Americans of all faiths to pray for all those affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
Late Saturday, anti-gun activist David Hogg posted a tweet, saying, “Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic. F**k a National day of prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.”
Tlaib, a Palestinian-American and one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to the U.S. Congress, retweeted it, without comment.
Hogg’s tweet linked to a video clip from Saturday’s briefing of the White House coronavirus taskforce. (Read more from “Rep. Tlaib Retweets: ‘F**K a National Day of Prayer’” HERE)
