"Impeach That Motherf***er": Freshman Senator Goes Off On Donald Trump
Despite steady calls from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for Democrats not to bring up impeachment, Rashida Tlaib didn't hold back her thoughts on the President.
She's the first Palestinian-American woman to be voted into Congress.
Hours after being sworn in, Senator Rashida Tlaib didn't waste any time sharing her feelings on what the Democrats' next move should be.
Surrounded by supporters at a campaign event in Washington D.C., Tlaib recalled a conversation with one of her sons after her electoral victory.
'When your son looks at you and says, 'Mama, look, you won -- bullies don't win.' And I said, 'No baby, they don't.' Because we're going to go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf***er."
Tlaib's bold statement followed an op-ed column written earlier that day for the Detroit Free Press, where she called for Trump's impeachment.
Her attitude echoes progressive Democrats, while moderates stick with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's wishes to wait for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to complete his investigation, and then call for impeachment.
In a tweet hours after the outburst, Tlaib was undeterred about her stance.
Tlaib's spokesman, Denzel McCampbell, said in a statement she "was elected to shake up Washington" and will not stay quiet.
"The congresswoman absolutely believes he needs to be impeached. She ran and won by making this very clear to voters in her district," McCampbell said.
Unsurprisingly, Trump took to Twitter to weigh in on the impeachment talk.
"How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong," he wrote.
He continued to pat himself on the back with statements like, "had the most successful two years of any president" and "the most popular Republican in party history" and offered no evidence to support his claims.
