Newly-elected Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is finding herself in the hot seat after calling the president a “motherf**ker” as President Donald Trump caught wind of the freshman congresswoman’s “disgraceful” remark.

“We’re going to go in and impeach the motherf**ker,” Tlaib’s shouted to a crowd of supporters on the evening of her swearing-in ceremony, clearly showing her distaste for President Trump.

Tlaib is one of the two first Muslim American women elected to Congress.

Watch the video below:

At a press conference on Friday, the president was asked by a reporter about the congresswoman’s remark, in which he responded, “Well, I thought her comments were disgraceful.”

He went on to say he thinks she “dishonored” herself and her family for using the vulgar language “in front of her son and whoever else was there.”

“I thought that was a great dishonor to her and to her family,” President Trump reiterated. “I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America.”

Watch the video below:

President Trump had previously addressed Tlaib’s remark without directly mentioning her by name:

Tlaib defended her comment saying she will “always speak truth to power.”

As IJR Red reported, several Democrats labeled Tlaib’s comment to “impeach that motherf**ker” as “inappropriate,” while some Republicans also said the freshman congresswoman’s comment is going to be a “real test” in how Pelosi handles the situation, saying, “How was she going to stand up to the most radical-left elements of her party when they become unhinged? And it didn’t take long.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) excused Tlaib’s remark as she said that she doesn’t like or use that type of language but doesn’t “think it’s anything worse than the president has said,” adding that impeachment is a “very divisive approach … without the facts,” NBC News reported.

What do you think?

Ms Tlaiib, you are a disgrace to this country and to the state of Michigan. I don’t know what you are doing in our government, but you don’t belong here. What I want to know is who you truly represent?

“I will always speak truth to power” she says. What does that even mean? I see this hack riding around in a Toyota pick up truck accompanied by wild-eyed teens with Kalashnikovs firing into the air, with a bullhorn exhorting illegals to “come out come out wherever you are! Follow me! I’ll lead you to the mother-effen promised land of impeachment!” (The Stones’ Street Fighting Man playing loudly in the background . Or is it Barry McGuire’s Eve of Destruction?)

Rep. Tlaiib, You know what’s a “constitutional crisis”? Trying to impeach a president with no charges. Include a witch hunt special investigation without an actual crime. That’s “special” alright.

Everyone knows Pelosi has no spine. Two years of rude obnoxious “don’t give a damn about this country” only want to push my agenda types. Hang on it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
