CLASSLESS: Rashida Tlaib is Selling Profane ‘Impeach the MF’ T-Shirts to Raise Campaign Funds
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!

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.
