New Democrat Speaker Of The House Nancy Pelosi is basking in the glory of regaining the gavel as well as being third in the line of succession to the presidency but already finds herself in damage control mode over the unbecoming conduct of one of her new underlings.
The fizz wasn’t even off of the champagne when radical Rashida Tlaib was captured on a now-viral video in which she told a crowd of cheering crowd of party activists that ‘We’re gonna impeach the motherf*cker’ in reference to President Trump.
The firestorm was quickly ignited as Tlaib’s obscene call to arms provided fodder to critics who had warned that the only goal of Democrats is to avenge Hillary and that they would waste the next two years and millions of taxpayer dollars to accomplish it.
With even some Democrats expressing revulsion over the new congresswoman’s uncouth demeanor and refusal to a apologize, Pelosi made it clear that she has Tlaib’s back when she was queried about the incident during a town hall with MSNBC’s homophobic hatemonger Joy Reid.

Newly elected Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Friday shied away from moving forward with impeachment at this time, calling it a “divisive” option. But she said that a colleague’s use of an expletive to describe President Donald Trump was no “worse” than some of the language the president himself has used.
“I do think that we want to be unified and bring people together. Impeachment is a very divisive approach to take and we shouldn’t take it … without the facts,” Pelosi said during an MSNBC town hall at Trinity University in Washington, her alma mater.
Her comments came the morning after a newly elected member of Congress, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., told a progressive audience that Democrats are going to “impeach the motherf—er.”
Pelosi said, “Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it.”
Pelosi also said that what Tlaib said was “nothing worse than the president has said,” and that the episode “consolidates his base, but I don’t think they need much consolidation.”
She added that while she was “not in the censorship business … I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language, but I wouldn’t establish language standards for my colleagues.”
Now there’s some fine leadership!
