Newly Elected Rep Uses Expletive Against Trump in Impeachment Rant

Speaking to a crowd of supporters Thursday night, the Michigan Democrat and one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress said of Trump, "People love you and you win". The president drew major applause when telling supporters that rather than politely mention tariffs to Chinese officials, he would prefer to be more direct and say, "Listen, you motherfuckers, we're going to tax you 25%".

McCarthy has been calling for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to condemn Tlaib.

Republicans have bridled at Tlaib's comments, using them to portray Democrats as seeking politically-motivated retribution against Trump rather than common ground.

On Friday, she refused to back down. And your son looks at you and says, 'Momma, look, you won. She said in the face of this constitutional crisis, we must rise.

A change was made to the map in Rashida Tlaib's office the day she was sworn into Congress: a Post-it Note smacked next to Israel, pointing to Palestine. She published an op-ed in the Detroit Free Press urging impeachment on Thursday.

Together with Minnesota's Ilhan Omar, Tlaib, an outspoken activist-cum-politician from MI, was one of the two first Muslim women to enter Congress Thursday, among dozens of freshman lawmakers who are helping make the 116th Congress the most diverse one in the nation's history.

Democrats' new majority in the House of Representatives has marked a dramatic power shift on Capitol Hill less than two years before the Republican president's re-election bid, as Democrats intend to put a check on Mr Trump's turbulent White House.

Trump himself, however, dismissed these threats, insisting that Democrats are only looking to impeach him because they know their party can not defeat him in the next election. Using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there, is a great dishonor to her and her family. They want to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller to issue a final report from his Russian Federation probe before moving to impeach Trump - if they even do.

If he were Jeff Flake or some other vocal anti-Trumper, he might at least claim consistency: "I've said over and over that both parties need to set an example in how they conduct themselves", etc.

"Ordinarily, I don't express myself in strong terms, but I thought it was appropriate here", Vice President Cheney told a supportive Fox News.

Helpful for what, though, I'm not sure. "And the thing we could do that most shows respect for the office is to not have someone there who has committed high crimes and misdemeanours on the one hand and is hurting the country on the other".
