Rashida Tlaib: Only Sorry Calling Trump 'Motherf**ker' Became 'Distraction'

Rashida Tlaib used an expletive Thursday in pushing for impeaching President Donald Trump. "I do apologize for the use of my words distracting us".

If you missed it, Rep. Tlaib, the recent-elected Congresswoman from Michigan's 13th district, kicked off the new, Democratically-controlled session of the House of Representatives with a new controversy last week.

"What I can tell you is that I am a person that is authentically me", Tlaib said, according to the outlet.

Last Thursday, the freshman congresswoman from MI told the crowd at an event hosted by the progressive group MoveOn that the new Democratic majority in the House was "gonna go in there and we're gonna impeach the motherfucker". "And that's the only thing I will apologize for, is that it was a distraction", Tlaib said.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) scorched President Donald Trump on "The View" for pushing "propaganda" to concoct a phony emergency over immigration.

"People love you and you win", the video showed Tlaib telling supporters.

Woman in Vegetative State Gives Birth in Long-Term Care Facility
For example, an investigation in 2013 found that a staff member had made "inappropriate, sexual statements" about four clients. She had been left in a vegetative state (awake but with no signs of awareness) for over 10 years after nearly drowning.

"And when your son looks at you and says, 'Mama, look, you won".

She added, "I understand that I am a member of Congress, and I don't want anything that I do or say to distract us".

Burnett got right to that controversial remark, but Tlaib reiterated her earlier comment that she's on;y sorry for the "distraction" the remarks caused.

"I am MAGA compared to my pal", she said, referring to the acronym for Trump's slogan Make America Great Again.

Critics blasted her use of the profanity, and Trump called her comments "disgraceful."
