Rashida Tlaib: 'We're Going to Impeach the Motherf*cker'

Both the House Democratic leadership and rank-and-file Democratic members rebuked comments from newly sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib promising to impeach "motherfucker" Donald Trump.

"My swearing in on the Quran is about me showing that the American people are made up of diverse backgrounds and we all have love of justice and freedom", Tlaib told the Detroit Free Press.

"And when your son looks at you and says mama, look you won, bullies don't win, I said baby they don't because we're going to go in there and we're going to impeach the mother fucker".

"We're going to go in there, and we're going to impeach the motherf***er", the Michigan Democrat said at Thursday MoveOn rally in Washington, D.C., drawing cheers and whoops from the crowd.

Newly elected Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other party leaders have said they want to wait for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to issue a final report from his Russian Federation probe before deciding whether to impeach Trump.

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. Some of her members are already ready to move forward - California Rep. Brad Sherman and Texas Rep. Al Green introduced articles of impeachment against Trump on Thursday, the first day of the new Congress.

It says, "President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country". Using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there, is a great dishonor to her and her family.

She also told the George Soros-backed organization, "For me it's really about taking down these corporate billionaires".

Taiwan reunification is a must, says Xi Jinping
Since coming to power six years ago, Xi has employed both incentives and pressure to steer Taiwan toward unification. The opposing Nationalists set up their own government on the island about 160 kilometers off the Chinese mainland.

A comment that set social media on fire, making headlines everywhere and drawing strong criticism from the president Friday afternoon.

"But I don't think it's any worse than what the president has said".

"I thought her comments were disgraceful".

Trump also talked about United States military and nation-building tactics overseas. Rep. Brad Sherman, (D-Calif.) re-introduced the articles of impeachment on the first day of the new Congress on January 3.

A lawmaker calling for Trump's impeachment is nothing new.

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

Democrats have just won control of the House of Representatives, after eight years in the minority.
