Rashida Tlaib leads ‘impeach the motherf*****’ chant on Capitol Hill

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a sitting member of the United States Congress collecting a taxpayer-funded salary, spent part of her workday leading a profane chant against President Trump in front of the White House.

The Michigan lawmaker joined several of her Democratic colleagues on Thursday to speak to pro-impeachment demonstrators gathered on the East Lawn of the Capitol, at one point leading a chant with the controversial call to “impeach the motherf****r.”

The shameful display by Tlaib and other Democrats, including Reps. Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, came during the pro-impeachment protest which also saw much praise for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her endorsement on Tuesday of the House’s impeachment inquiry.

Tlaib slammed the president in her remarks for putting “profits before our servicemen and women, before schools, before the environment.”

“This isn’t just about corruption,” she said. “This is about our way of life.”

Tlaib was busy not earning her salary earlier in the day as well, as her campaign launched the sale of “Impeach the MF” t-shirts, highlighting the infamous declaration she shouted after she was sworn into Congress in January: “We’re going to impeach the mother****r!”

“Can you imagine the outrage if I had put a t-shirt together like that for impeaching President Obama?” Rep. Bill Huizenga said, according to The Detroit News.

“First of all, my mother would have called me and told me, ‘Shame on you.’ Then I would have heard from my Republican colleagues asking me, ‘What in the world are you doing?’” the Michigan Republican said. “Then I would have to face myself in the mirror and my kids and explain what’s going on, at the same time I’m getting preachy about decorum and how we need civility in politics.”

Thursday’s pro-impeachment protesters at the White House were treated to more elected members of Congress railing against the sitting president.

Omar invoked the Constitution in her rant against Trump’s “abuse” of power.

California Rep. Barbara Lee sang the Democrats’ favorite tune, declaring Trump had “betrayed his oath of office.”

And Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington announced that the search for the “smoking gun” was over.

While Tlaib and her colleagues continue to fuel their base and attack the president, stunts like the profane chants and disrespectful t-shirts only seem to drive home the point that it is the left that is disconnected from what America holds valuable.
