Nancy Pelosi Excuses Rashida Tlaib’s ‘Impeach That Mother**ker’ Comment

The two volume Koran once owned by Thomas Jefferson that will be used in the swearing in ceremony of incoming Congress woman Rashida Tlaib seen here in the ceremony of Rep. Keith Ellison D-Minn. the first Muslim elected to Congress during his swearing

The drumbeat elicited a response from Trump, who said in a pair of tweets, "They only want to impeach me because they know they can't win in 2020, too much success!"

Newly elected Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib exclaimed at an event Thursday that Democrats were going to impeach Trump and used a profane expression to describe him.

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.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) made history in November when she became the first Muslim woman to win a seat in Congress.

"I think President Trump has met his match", she said.

Along with using the Quran, Tlaib "has said she will wear a Palestinian gown called a thobe for her swearing-in ceremony", CNN reported.

Still, it will be hard for Pelosi to quiet some on her left flank who see their new majority as a direct challenge to Trump.

The video was originally posted on social media by Jon Levine of The Wrap, though someone else was credited for filming the speech.

"But it's also fair to say that she is a little bit more visibly Palestinian in the sense that her Palestinian identity is a more significant part of her public persona; that's a big part of how she publicly identifies herself", Omar Baddar, deputy director of the Arab American Institute, told MEE.

Tlaib later said that she was unapologetic for her comments and "will always speak truth to power".

"That is not the position of the House Democratic caucus", Pelosi said on MSNBC of Tlaib's comments. "They have no solutions for America", said Sanders, adding that Americans are "sick and exhausted of playing politics" and want to see Democrats and the White House "get something done".

But it's no secret that many Democrats - and many Americans in general - believe Trump should and will be impeached.

But when Trump was asked about his critic's comments, he said they were "disgraceful", and "highly disrespectful to the United States of America".

Less than two years later, a Palestinian-American woman walked into the U.S. capitol building in Washington as a member of Congress, wearing a Palestinian thobe.

Sherman criticized the tenor of Tlaib's remarks but defended pushing for impeachment.

The 116th US Congress has a record number of women in its ranks with 102 women in US House of Representatives and 23 women in the Senate.

"She could have said it better than that, she got her point across but there's other ways you can get your point across without using swear words", Kevin Stevinson said.
