WATCH: Rashida Tlaib Fumbles Call for Trump Impeachment
While freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) attempted to call for the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, she embarrassingly fumbled her words, and needed assistance from the crowd to finish her sentence.
“Later on this month, I will be joining folks and advocates across the country to file the impeachment, uh–” she said, stumbling.
“Oh my God, what is it?” she continued. “Ah, sorry I’m not in the Michigan legislature.”
The crowd, some holding a sign that read “Trump is the real national emergency,” interjected while she struggled, finishing her sentence by yelling the word “resolution.”
Tlaib finished her sentence, saying that she would file a resolution to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump.
Tlaib vulgarly called for Trump’s impeachment during her first days in U.S. Congress, recounting a story she told to her young son in which she said she wanted to “impeach the motherf*****.”
Thursday, a video surfaced of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) explaining how she found out that she had been elected to Congress.
Apparently, her young son alerted her to this fact though Tlaib ran essentially unopposed.
“Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win,” her woke child apparently said in reference to President Donald J. Trump.
According to Tlaib, her response was “Baby, they don’t. Because we’re gonna go in there, we’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.”
