Nancy Pelosi Excuses Rashida Tlaib’s ‘Impeach That Mother**ker’ Comment

A newly-elected Democratic congresswoman has used an expletive to call for the impeachment of US President Donald Trump. "Bullies don't win, ' and I said, 'Baby, they don't, ' because we're gonna go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf****r", said Tlaib, recalling the moment she won her election last November. And when your son looks at you and says, 'Mama, look.

"We're going to go in there and impeach the motherf--er", Tlaib said.

Video of the vulgar declaration drew a great deal of attention on Twitter.

The morning of her entry into Congress, Ms Tlaib labelled Mr Trump "a direct and serious threat to our country", in a co-authored op-ed published in the Detroit Free Press newspaper.

Tlaib and Democrat Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women in congress on Thursday, with the opening of the 116th congress amid a two-week long partial government shutdown.

"I don't really like that kind of language. So we'll just have to see how it comes", she told NBC News.

From her social media posts, it looks like she has zero intention of apologizing.

India's flashpoint temple, off limits to women
The women, who are now under police protection, can be seen leaving the shrine in videos that have been circulating on WhatsApp. Conservative Hindu groups say they believe women of menstruating age would defile the temple's inner shrine.

For the Palestinian community in the United States, whose identity has been demonised and associated with violence and extremism for decades, watching a Palestinian-American woman enter the halls of power in Washington was an uplifting experience - both politically and culturally.

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

But not even Democrats are welcoming Tlaib's comments. Rep.

Democrats who support impeachment have argued that Trump obstructed justice by firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and that hush payments to at least two women made by his personal attorney during the presidential race violated campaign finance laws.

I am U.S. Congresswoman.

The remark came hours after Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) re-filed articles of impeachment against Trump. I also love Eric Holder's (obviously metaphoric) idea that "When they go low, we kick them". What we did find is serial incompetence among the elite media to cover this White House, who have also peddled story after story claiming to be Russian Federation bombshells that only end up being massive nothing burgers.
