Shortly after being sworn into Congress, Rashida Tlaib wasted no time in reaffirming her disapproval of President Trump in the crudest possible way.
While Tlaib has been a frequent and vocal critic of Trump, even calling for impeachment in an op-ed she wrote for the Detroit Free Press, she usually did so with at least some amount of decency.
During an event for a progressive advocacy group, Tlaib recounted a conversation she allegedly had with her son.
“People love you and you win,” said Tlaib. “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”
Tlaib’s profane announcement was shared on Twitter as well as being confirmed by numerous journalists in attendance. What consequences it will have for the new Congress member has yet to be seen.
It is however a bold statement to make that doesn’t seem to have the proper support, given that newly re-instated Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been hesitant to endorse the impeachment of President Trump.
