On Friday, (D) Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia slammed Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for her profane statement saying that President Trump should be impeached, calling it “so disgusting.”
“It was horrible, Neil,” Manchin told host Neil Cavuto on Fox News. “No one should approve of that, and I hope she doesn’t talk to her son that way either. You know, what can you say? I can’t in any way condone that. That’s not how we act in West Virginia. It’s not how we talk about public leaders.”
“We might disagree with each other, but we try to get through it, we try to find a pathway forward. To act like that is awful and to speak like that is even more deplorable. I am so sorry. I want to apologize to all Americans, any sitting Congress person — there’s 535 of us there, 100 senators and 435 Congress people. We should have better manners than that, I assure you.”
WATCH the segment here:
As reported by The Hill, Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, has caught flak for comments she made at a MoveOn.org rally near Capitol Hill on Thursday night.
In a video that has seen significant criticism Tlaib said, “When your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re going to go in there and impeach the motherf—er,” Tlaib said as the crowd cheered her on.
alter she was confronted and asked about it and rather than discuss the comment she ran off from the camera and refused to answer questions.
Benny Johnson from the Daily Caller shared the video of Tlaib running from the cameras.
As reported by ILMF, the video is even better because she doesn’t appear to know where she’s going. The new girl ran her mouth, then ran from the cameras, then got lost in the process.
After victoriously shouting to a cheering audience that she will "impeach the motherfucker" Trump, Rep. Rashida Tlaib *literally* runs scared from reporters asking her if she stands by the comments.
She's new here so does not know where to go – lol

Tlaib is 42, an attorney from Michigan who’s now a member of our United States Congress.
She received a roar of applause in her viral “motherf**ker” comment, but she had nothing to say the day after.
