Trump Responds To Congresswoman Who Said She’d ‘Impeach The Motherf–ker’ On Her First Day

Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib spoke in front of supporters yesterday and told a story about talking to her son about her 2018 victory. She also said wanted to impeach Trump.

“And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby, they don’t’—because we’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf–ker,” Tlaib said.

You’d think a member of Congress invoking impeachment powers might be the most newsworthy part of the quote, but nope! Instead, everyone freaked out about the naughty language.

Some of those most scandalized by Rep. Tlaib’s potty mouth were Republicans—you know, the ones who love when Trump “tells it like it is.” Here’s GOP House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy looking for a fainting couch to pass out on:

Just so we’re clear, “a lot” of Congressional Republicans definitely did not call out the president when he called Stormy Daniels “horserace.” (Although, GOP Rep. Ryan Costello, who did not run for re-election, offered the strongest rebuke.)

And here’s RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel with a white-knuckle grip on her pearls:

Congresswoman Tlaib responded to the controversy on Twitter and she’s not sorry:

And President Trump, who gleefully uses vulgar language to thrill his supporters, said Tlaib “dishonored” herself during a press conference today:

Trump also questioned how he could ever be impeached:

Twitter didn’t waste any time piling on the sudden obsession with civility and decorum from Republicans:

Hopefully that puts this very boring non-controversy to rest so everyone can get back to talking about something that matters, like the fact that Trump said he might keep the government shut down “for years.”
