In what may be a harbinger of what's to come in the new Democrat Party-controlled House of Representatives, one freshman congresswoman has lowered the bar on class and manners in her first comments after taking the oath of office.
Some would say she let her 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' get the best of her while others might warn that she is letting the entire nation see what's in store now that the Democratic Party has taken over the lower chamber of Congress.
The truth is that it really doesn’t matter why Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib let loose with her potty-mouthed name-calling of the sitting President of the United States, the real takeaway is that she felt completely empowered and comfortable in degrading the office that she was elected to hold.
Riding on the wings of having made history as the first Muslim woman ever elected to the House of Representatives, it’s clear that Ms. Tlaib does not fear any consequences for her completely uncalled for language.
Just imagine for a moment if the same utterance would have come out of the mouth of a Republican lawmaker about former President Obama - calls for his/her recall/impeachment/indictment would have swiftly followed.
So what did she say? Well, in her folksy speech after having b been sworn in, she quoted a conversation she had with her 12-year-old son about her victory in November’s election.
The video (above-WARNING: offensive language) begins as she is already in the middle of her remarks. It's the next part that is getting all the attention. “People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Look, Mama, you won! Bullies don’t win!’”
Tlaib responded to her child, which makes the use of disgusting language even more shocking, “And I said, ‘Baby, you don’t.’ Because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother-f***er’.” Congresswoman to her young son. Let THAT sink in!
As expected, President Trump had a little bit to say about Ms. Tlaib's words, claiming she is a disgrace to herself and her party.
The Daily Caller reports, "I thought her comments were disgraceful. This is a person that I don’t know. I assume she’s new. I think she dishonored herself and I think she’s dishonored her family.
"Using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there, I thought that was a disgrace and a dishonor to her and to her family. I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America."
