During an interview with CBS This Morning host Gayle King, America’s first two female Muslim lawmakers attempted to explain how they’re comfortable condemning President Trump for recent comments he made about the four radical lawmakers, but think everyone should ignore the highly controversial statements they’ve made in their short time in Congress.
King started out by asking Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) about the language she used on the evening of her swearing-in ceremony in January when she was caught on video telling a crowd of her supporters that she promised her little son that when she got into office she would “Impeach the motherf**ker!” (referring to President Trump). King asked Rep. Tlaib, “Do you think your language was helpful” and if she had any regrets about being a foul-mouthed lawmaker?
The always defiant and usually angry Palestinian cheerleader told King, “From day one, I truly believe he has committed impeachable offenses.” King interrupted her saying, “But even if you believe that, the fact that you called him…” Tlaib interrupted King, saying, “But I didn’t do it on the House floor. And I’m gonna be unapologetic in myself. Seventy percent of Americans curse. (We’re not sure where she gets that figure?) Tlaib continued, “I’m being real. This is who I am. I’m rooted in where I come from. And it’s very common for me and for many of my residents to say things like that.”
Tlaib continued to push back saying that she’s still fighting for President Trump’s impeachment:
Call it karma, but the “impeach the motherf**ker” lawmaker just got some really bad news…
The Hill – The House on Wednesday voted 332-95 to kill the first articles of impeachment brought forward under the new Democratic majority, showing off a deep divide among Democrats on whether to go forward with an effort to unseat President Trump.
A majority of Democrats along with the chamber’s Republicans voted to table the measure sponsored by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), but a sizable number of Democrats voted to send it to the Judiciary Committee in order to keep it alive.
It’s the first time the Democratic House has been confronted with a vote on impeachment and comes a week before special counsel Robert Mueller is set to testify before two committees on Capitol Hill.
Green, whose previous impeachment votes have accused Trump of inflaming racial tensions, offered the measure immediately after the House on Tuesday voted to condemn Trump over tweets targeting four minority Democratic congresswomen.
We can’t wait to hear what “The Squad” has to say about their efforts being squashed in the House today.
