Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), one of the first two Muslim women in Congress, was caught on video referring to President Donald Trump as a “motherf*cker.” However, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly stepped in to make the politician regret her incendiary language.
On Thursday, newly-installed Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) made history as the first Palestinian-American to be sworn into Congress. She also set a precedent for what is perhaps the most unethical behavior we have seen from a sitting lawmaker, referring to the President of the United States as a “motherf*cker”:
Tlaib was celebrated Thursday by Democrats and the media as the first Palestinian-American member of Congress, and one of the two first Muslim women in Congress.
She took her oath of office on a Koran owned by President Thomas Jefferson and wore a traditional Palestinian robe (“thobe”) to the swearing-in and first session in the House.
Later that evening, however, she appeared at a reception hosted by the far-left MoveOn.org organization, and declared — to the cheers of those present: “We’re gonna impeach that motherfuck**r.” [Source: Breitbart]

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had some harsh words for Tlaib after her profanity-laced rant against the president went viral, telling “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning, “You will not impeach this president.”
“You will not impeach this president when he had two of the most successful years any president had in modern history,” Sanders said bluntly. “The only reason they come after this president is because they know they can’t beat us, can’t beat him when it comes to policy debate. They have no solutions for America.”
“People are sick and tired of playing politics,” Sarah continued. “That is not what America is looking for. That is not the goodness of our country. I hope some of these new faces that campaigned on being different and being a change will actually come here to work with the president, work for solutions, work to help the American people, not to help their own political careers.”
The Democrats do not seem to understand that you cannot impeach a president simply because you do not agree with him. Perhaps a crash course on the Constitution is in order for new members of Congress like Rashida Tlaib who think they will actually get anywhere with this impeachment nonsense.
Sarah Sanders is absolutely right — the political left has resorted to these tactics because they have no solutions to offer America, and they are dead set against working with the president, even if it ultimately benefits their constituents. Take, for example, the current debate surrounding border security. This was an issue which prominent Democrats were once behind full-heartedly. Not until President Trump took office did they decide that we should withhold funding for an impenetrable border wall.
Any way you slice it, securing our porous southern border with Mexico is a good idea. American citizens are killed by illegal immigrants who had no business being here in the first place. Moreover, the $5 billion Trump has requested to finish the wall pales in comparison to the taxpayer dollars that are spent to support undocumented immigrants who come here illegally and have babies without a way to support themselves or their offspring.
Then, of course, there is the issue of upward mobility for minority American communities. With millions of illegals in the country working for very small amounts of money, it becomes near impossible for low-skilled American workers to find jobs and earn a living for themselves and their families.
There is simply no denying that we need a border wall. The fact that the Democrats are willing to prolong the government shutdown rather than fork over $5 billion is a perfect example of the way they are willing to stand in the way of progress at all costs, as long as it means opposing the president.
