  • Rashida Tlaib has caused outrage among Republicans with her comment

Rashida Tlaib was unapologetic about her choice of words calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump at an event Thursday, where the congresswoman referred to him as a "motherf****r". "More to the point, I disagree with what she said".

"How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time?" "And I said baby, they don't becaused we're gonna impeach the motherf--er!"

According to The Daily Caller, Sanders' retort came in response to Tlaib ranting against Trump at an event for the political action group MoveOn, and promising to "impeach the motherf***er", apparently referring to the U.S. president.

As a long-time Trump critic, Tlaib made calls for his impeachment central to her campaign - and was once arrested for heckling the then-candidate during his White House run.

The "motherf***er" she's referencing is President Donald Trump; the man the Left ridicules for being uncouth.

Still, Pelosi said she didn't like the language and wouldn't use it.

Thankfully, she and other Democratic leaders seem to be listening to their progressive base - which, despite the naysayers in the pundit class, was overwhelmingly supportive of Tlaib on social media.

NASA probe flies past most distant object ever explored
May says Alan Stern, the Project Instigator of the NASA Mission, who approached him in May about writing a special song. Once received, the signals confirmed that the flyby had taken place and that New Horizons was operating perfectly.

"We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offences", she said. "Because this is about electing the jury to impeach (POTUS) and I will make a heck of juror", she wrote on Twitter in March.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been cautious about whether her new Democratic majority would ever impeach Trump, but at least two of her members are ready to move forward. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said that it was much too early to talk about impeachment "intelligently", and that her vulgarity was inappropriate.

"It's important to me because a lot of Americans have this kind of feeling that Islam is somehow foreign to American history", Tlaib told The Detroit Free Press. "He wins when we do it".

But Liz Cheney's scolding of Tlaib is totally hypocritical in light of the fact that in 2004, her father told Democratic Sen.

He also vowed to protect the Russian Federation probe, following more than a year of taunts and complaints by President Trump that it constituted a "witch hunt" and calls by the president and his top aides and advisors for it to end.

Less than two years later, a Palestinian-American woman walked into the United States capitol building in Washington as a member of Congress, wearing a Palestinian thobe.
