Michigan Congresswoman under fire for using profanity to describe President Trump

President Donald Trump says newly elected Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI "dishonored herself" when she used profanity to describe him.

"Well I thought her comments were disgraceful, this is a person I don't know, I assume she's new, I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family", President Trump said. Trump immediately seized on the topic, asking in a tweet Friday, "How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong". "Bullies don't win.' And I said, 'baby they don't, '" Tlaib told a crowd Thursday night.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib learned that before lunch Friday, when her profane remarks the night before vowing to impeach President Donald Trump drew nearly no support, and plenty of pushback, from members of her party.

Newly elected Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wouldn't have used "that language".

Tlaib, a former state representative, ran with no significant opposition in Michigan's 13th District, comprising the predominantly African-American outskirts of Detroit, and became the first Palestinian-American elected to Congress, as well as one of the first Muslim women.

The op-ed, like Tlaib's celebratory speech, demands Trump's impeachment.

Still, it will be hard for Pelosi to quiet some on her left flank who see their new majority as a direct challenge to Trump.

"As a young girl, I watched my mother hand stitch thobes while sitting on the floor with a lamp at her side", Tlaib wrote.
