Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) is trying to cash in on her infamously profane outburst regarding President Donald Trump, and is now selling t-shirts featuring her signature phrase, “Impeach the MF” to raise campaign funds.
Lean in with me to hold this lawless President accountable. Together, we will fight back and protect our democracy.
Our country depends on it!
— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) September 26, 2019
After being criticized for the shirts, Tlaib stood by them and released a sanctimonious statement defending her decision to sell the crude merchandise.
“Impeachment is serious—I know this. But it is a mistake to try to equate t-shirts with the destruction of our democracy or try to paint those who’ve risked out safety calling for it, as not taking it seriously,” she wrote. “If there is anyone who takes impeachment seriously it is myself & the people I fight for every day. Whether or not you agree with the expression, the t-shirts are to bring levity to my supporters.”
“Not only has this President personally targeted my faith, but he has been making decisions as a CEO of the Trump Corp., not as someone looking out for what is best for the American people. Focus on why people are so angry with this President and his administration,” she added. “Instead of the t-shirts, focus on this President’s criminal, impeachable behavior.”
She made the infamous comment earlier this year just hours after being sworn in as a Congresswoman while appearing at an event hosted by MoveOn, a George Soros front.

Tlaib has made impeaching the President her signature issue during her first year in the legislature, and she may be finally getting her wish. House Democrats are proceeding forward with an impeachment inquiry after an anonymous whistle-blower lodged a complaint against President Trump over his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“We could not ignore what the president did. He gave us no choice,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said about the impeachment inquiry that she launched last week during an appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes” that aired on Sunday.
“So it wasn’t any change of mind. I always said we will follow the facts where they take us. And when we see them, we will be ready. And we are ready,” she added.
“We will move as expeditiously as possible,” said House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), referring to the impeachment proceedings. “But we have to see what witnesses are going to make themselves available and what witnesses are going to require compulsion.”
“The discussions are underway between the relevant parties representing the whistle-blower and others to see if that’s an opportunity that can be afforded to us,” Rep. Denny Heck (D-WA) said to CNN about the possibility of impeachment. “My view is the sooner the better. I would hope that that would happen within the next two weeks.”
It is clear that Tlaib and her fellow socialist freshman “Squad” members are running the show as the Democrats lunge to the far-left out of desperation to oppose President Trump.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
