New US politician speaks her mind on Trump

That evening, newly elected Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI riled up a supportive crowd by calling the president a profanity and predicting that he will be removed from office. Pelosi is 78, while Tlaib is 42.

"I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language, I don't establish any language standards for my colleagues", Pelosi told MSNBC, "but I don't think it's anything worse than the president has said".

Trump is pushing back on talk of impeaching him.

"Well I thought her comments were disgraceful, this is a person I don't know, I assume she's new, I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family", President Trump said.

Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) was among those who called Tlaib's impeachment comment "inappropriate".

As a long-time Trump critic, Ms Tlaib made calls for his impeachment central to her campaign - and was once arrested for heckling the then-candidate during his White House run.




"I think those kind of comments do not take us in the right direction", said Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland. "Bullies don't win.' And I said, 'Baby, they don't, because we're gonna go in there and we're gonna impeach the mother***er'". "Impeachment is a very divisive approach to take and we shouldn't take it ... without the facts", she told host Joy Reid later in the interview, set to air Friday at 10 p.m. ET.

"I think some of our new members probably don't realize that you are always on, that when you are a member of Congress, there's always someone listening", said Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.

"The congresswoman has the power of speech is hers", he said.

"We're going to go in there, and we're going to impeach the motherf***er", the Michigan Democrat said at Thursday MoveOn rally in Washington, D.C., drawing cheers and whoops from the crowd.

Tlaib and Democrat Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women in congress on Thursday, with the opening of the 116th congress amid a two-week long partial government shutdown.

The president, who has long fashioned himself as the ultimate victor, told the confidant that he anxious that impeachment, even if he retained office, would be a stain on his legacy. "More to the point, I disagree with what she said". "And the thing we can do that most shows respect for the office is to not have someone there who has committed high crimes and misdemeanors on the one hand and is hurting the country on the other".
