Rashida Tlaib Pisses Off Dems After She Vows to ‘Impeach the Motherf**ker!’ – WATCH

*Dammit! Democrats in the House are not thrilled with incoming freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of Michigan for her expletive-riddled statement about impeaching Donald Trump. Apparently she didn’t get the memo regarding their approach (carefully crafted rhetoric)  to take on the president.

As has been reported, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats have long argued that impeachment is a last resort that would come at the end of exhaustive oversight and investigations. Unfortunately, today the media is spotlighting  the profane words of Rep. Tlaib who told a crowd of progressive activists Thursday night that “we’re gonna impeach the motherf**ker!

It didn’t take long for her colleagues – rearing dam ge her comments could cause, spoke out against her. They pointed out that Republicans would hold it up as proof that Democrats were playing politics rather than pursuing genuine oversight of the president — even if the GOP never showed interest in investigating Trump scandals while they were in power.

“Mueller hasn’t even produced his report yet!” said Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. “People should cool their jets a little bit, let the prosecutors do their job and finish the investigation.”

“Inappropriate,” added Rep. Jim Costa (D-Calif.). “As elected officials I think we should be expected to set a high bar… It’s not helpful.”

Even California Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman, who introduced an impeachment resolution earlier this week, was shocked. His eyes bulged in disbelief when a reporter read him Tlaib’s comments and he was speechless for several seconds.

After he regained his composure, Sherman said that kind of language was detrimental to the cause: “That’s not language I would use…I think the office of the presidency should be treated with respect.”

Party elders also sought to calm talk of impeachment without criticizing Tlaib directly. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the new chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, called Talib’s comments “inappropriate” and said, “We need to be patient.”

“You can’t accomplish very much of anything unless you have civility and show respect for your colleagues,” Cummings said. “Those kind of comments do not take us in the right direction.”

Pelosi said while she didn’t agree with the language, she also didn’t think anyone “should make a big deal” about the expletive, noting the president is also known for having a foul mouth sometimes.

“I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language, but I wouldn’t establish language standards for my colleagues,” Pelosi said during an MSNBC town hall Friday morning.
