Newly elected U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was sworn into the House of Representatives on Thursday wearing a traditional Palestinian thobe, or dress, sparking a movement on social media. She was pretty excited.
Donald Trump on Friday blasted as "disgraceful" a new congresswoman's expletive-laced demand for the president's impeachment. She published an op-ed in the Detroit Free Press urging impeachment on Thursday.
Prior to making the comments, she had spoken about the meaningfulness of being a role-model for young girls.
Ms. Tlaib went on to write that the issue goes beyond Mr. Trump and should be considered a constitutional crisis. The impeachment process would require the consent of both the House and two-thirds of the Senate, which still has a Republican majority.
One conservative commentator called Tlaib "an idiot looking for attention" while another accused her of fueling political hatred, something that Democrats have blamed Republicans for.
"I disagree with what she said", said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., during a CNN interview.
"'The time for impeachment proceedings is now", the column concludes'.
"Ever", Tlaib told the crowd in the packed space.
"You can't impeach somebody that is doing a great job. That's why it's important to protect the Mueller investigation". "I'm proud of you", he said. "I can not wait to inspire the next generation", she said. It is too early to talk about [impeachment] intelligently...
"We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road, they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can't get a fucking school in Brooklyn", he said.
"President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country". Tlaib wasn't even the only one to do it on Thursday.
But Tlaib's enthusiastic will likely rankle conservatives because of her use of profanity.
