Trump Lawyer Jordan Sekulow Falsely Claims Rep. Rashida Tlaib Went on ‘Profanity Laced Attack’ Against National Day of Prayer
Trump lawyer Jordan Sekulow falsely claimed on Twitter that Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) went on a “profanity laced attack” against the National Day of Prayer.

In reality, Tlaib retweeted a tweet made by Parkside shooting survivor David Hogg who called out the hypocrisy of Republicans who fail to take action against gun violence, but push the National Day of Prayer instead.
Don’t let this administration address COVID-19 like our national gun violence epidemic. Fuck a National day of prayer, we need immediate comprehensive action.— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 15, 2020
Sekulow also used his false claim to get people to sign an online petition (below), which will be used to gather email addresses. Those email addressed are then milked for donations to the Sekulow “charity” ACLJ.
The ACLJ “charity” funnels the tax-free money to a law firm run by Jordan and his father, Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow, noted The Guardian in 2017.
The Sekulows — who own multiple homes — have paid themselves and family members themselves a staggering $65 million, reported the Associated Press in January.
In extremely offensive language, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib made it clear what she thinks about the National Day of Prayer.— Jordan Sekulow (@JordanSekulow) March 16, 2020
Prayer should be welcome in America. Rashida Tlaib’s attack on prayer is unacceptable. Sign our petition at the link below. https://t.co/3lsAzt7nUA pic.twitter.com/CZ9iXLWEEp
