Rashida Tlaib Was Mean To Trump

UPDATE: The original video has been removed by Youtube, so I put up another one, 4719.

That was very mean for Rashida to call Trump, a sitting president, a muthafukker.

Then again, she was mean to my Sweetie.

This gave me saddy face, again.

But, I am quite sure she will not say anything mean about me, considering the fact I am a woman, a whistleblower, and the simple fact that child welfare has those privacy laws.

I first met Rashida at Southwest Solutions on a child welfare case.

I bet Trump has something in his backpocket that would make Rashida stop being mean.

Your son was right, Rashida, "bullies never win" and neither do those who were mean to my Sweetie.

You should really talk to Nancy Pelosi, or a good lawyer over there at Sugar Law.

“People love you and you win,” the video showed Tlaib telling supporters Thursday night. “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”

Rashida Tlaib uses expletive in cry to impeach Trump

Washington — Newly sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Detroit told a cheering crowd that “we’re going to ... impeach the mother (expletive),” referring to President Donald Trump.

After the video of her remarks went viral on social media, Tlaib tweeted Friday morning: “I always speak truth to power. #unaplogeticallyme.”

The video clip starts with Tlaib recounting her son telling her, “‘Look, Mama, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t because we’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the (expletive).’”

Tlaib was sworn into Congress Thursday, succeeding former Rep. John Conyers Jr. this week in representing Michigan’s 13th District, which includes parts of Detroit and Wayne County.

Tlaib has previously called for impeachment proceedings against Trump. During orientation last November, she gave each member of the the freshman class a book arguing for his impeachment.
"I have been very open from the beginning that this is about electing the jurors to impeach this president — in many ways holding him accountable," she told Detroit News last week.

"I wanted make sure my new colleagues understand we have a duty and responsibility in the balance of government, and we have to hold him accountable and have to have a transparent process."

In a tweet Friday morning, Tlaib repeated her call for change, saying that she "will always speak truth to power" and later adding, "This is not just about Donald Trump. This is about all of us. In the face of this constitutional crisis, we must rise."

"Congresswoman Tlaib was elected to shake up Washington, not continue the status quo. Donald Trump is completely unfit to serve as President," Denzel McCampbell, spokesman for Tlaib's office, said in an emailed statement. "The Congresswoman absolutely believes he needs to be impeached.

She ran and won by making this very clear to the voters in her district. Donald Trump’s actions have harmed the 13th Congressional District and this country, and Congresswoman Tlaib will not stay silent while this happens."

This is not just about Donald Trump. This is about all of us. In the face of this constitutional crisis, we must rise.

Tlaib was escorted from the audience of Trump's August 2016 Detroit Economic Club speech after disrupting it.

Tlaib’s former campaign spokesman described the congresswoman as a “force of nature” whose “unwavering passion for the people of the 13th“ includes a bringing some of the grit from that district to D.C.

“I think she sees the president as the biggest threat to the middle class and working men and women and she is determined to put a crimp in those plans,” said T.J. Bucholz, who now is an advisor for Tlaib.

From the traditional Palestinian dress she wore for her swearing in, to her animation on the floor, to her comments Thursday night, Tlaib has shown “she’s going to be a different kind of Congresswoman,” Bucholz said.

“She does not mince words,” Bucholz said. “Rashida will tell you exactly what she thinks.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking Friday to a town hall sponsored by MSNBC at Washington's Trinity University, said she didn't like Tlaib's choice of words and isn't ready to pursue impeachment, calling it "divisive."

"I probably have a generational reaction to it," Pelosi said, according to NBC News. "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."

The speaker added that Tlaib's remark was "nothing worse than the president has said."
