Congressperson Rashida Tlaib is famous for a lot of things. She was the first Muslim woman to serve in the Michigan legislature. And she's is one of the most progressive Democrats in Congress.

But today she's going viral for something else - her FEET.

A new pic was leaked - that shows Rashida without her shoes. And her feet look gigantic. Folks on social media are saying that the Congresswoman has got "caveman feet."


Rashida is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). She and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are the third and fourth DSA members to serve in Congress and the first female DSA members to serve in Congress. 

Tlaib has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration and advocated impeachment of President Donald Trump. 

On foreign affairs, she has sharply criticized the Israeli government, called for an end to U.S. aid to Israel, and expressed support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign. 

Tlaib is a member of the informal group known as "The Squad" along with Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brushed off a tweet from President Trump on Friday claiming she envied the media attention fellow “Squad” members Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have received over their recent controversy with Israel.

“Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party," the president wrote. "Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!”

But the New York Democrat apparently wasn't buying it. She simply added a laughing emoji to a retweet of Trump’s tweet.

Trump’s comment came amid a string of tweets Friday responding to Tlaib’s announcement that she would not travel to Israel to visit her grandmother despite having been granted permission to enter the country from Israeli officials.

"Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her 'grandmother,'" Trump wrote. "As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel. Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately!"
