On Thursday Rep. Rashida Tlaib chose to blame white supremacy for Tuesday’s New Jersey shooting that targeted Jews. “This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills,” Tlaib said in a tweet.

Tlaib deleted the tweet within 20 minutes of posting it. She is the only member of “the Squad” who even bothered weighing in on the shooting.
