Mollie Tibbetts’s Father Rejects Attacks on Hispanics
Mollie Tibberts's father isn't playing along with Fox News and President Trump's attacks on Hispanic immigrants. In other words, while his daughter's alleged murderer might be Hispanic and undocumented, he is not representative of either group.
Policical Wire/Washington Post: “But Tibbetts family members have struck a different note, even in the emotionally tense days following the confirmation of her death last week, although they have not directly rebuked the president."
"During the eulogy her father, Rob Tibbetts, gave during her funeral Sunday, he highlighted his positive feelings for the local Hispanic community.”Said Tibbetts: “The Hispanic community are Iowans. They have the same values as Iowans.”
"He even noted that during the nearly six weeks he spent in Iowa while authorities searched for his daughter, he ate at a number of Mexican restaurants: “As far as I’m concerned, they’re Iowans with better food.”
What a heart-breaking loss. But, what a classy guy.
