Rashida Tlaib Back With Vulgar Impeachment Push
United States Congress [Public domain]
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is back in the spotlight, posting videos goading protesters into calling President Donald Trump a "motherf****r" and fundraising off of t-shirts harkening back to those vitriolic calls.

The Daily Wire's Molly Prince has more:
 

"Lean in with me to hold this lawless President accountable. Together, we will fight back and protect our democracy," Tlaib tweeted with a link to the apparel. "Our country depends on it! … and yes you can even wear what you feel."

The freshman congresswoman also sent out an email blast to her constituents introducing the new line. The $29 shirts come in two designs — each with three different color choices — and sport the now-infamous phrase "Impeach the MF."

 

Only hours after Tlaib was sworn into Congress in January, she was recorded vowing to go after Trump during an event hosted by the progressive organizations MoveOn.org and New American Leaders. Referring to the president, Tlaib shouted at a crowd of left-wing supporters that she is going to go in and "impeach the motherf****r."

While the profanity drew immediate criticism from both sides of the political aisle, the Michigan congresswoman has touted her vulgar statement as an anti-Trump rallying cry.


Tlaib's fundraising campaign comes in the wake of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's announcement of an impeachment inquiry.

The progressive firebrand has struggled to receive public support from endangered Democratic lawmakers in Michigan's congressional delegation. Reps. Elissa Slotkin and Haley Stevens (both represent Republican-leaning districts) have refused to answer whether or not they'd endorse Tlaib.

WATCH:



Tlaib is likely to face a primary challenger next year, but so-called political experts consider her difficult to beat. What do you think?
