WATCH: Rep. Rashida Tlaib Bolts From Press Asking About ‘Impeach the Motherf*cker’ Comment
— Bo Erickson (@BoKnowsNews) January 4, 2019
Even though Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) says she has no regrets for her vow to “impeach the motherf*cker” President Donald Trump, she refused to take questions on the matter when reporters approached her on Friday.
The new congresswoman is generating a lot of buzz for the explicit comments she made at a party sponsored by progressive activist group MoveOn. But when reporters converged on Tlaib as she entered Congress, a staffer told the pool to direct all questions to her office.
Journalists continued to chase after her as she ignored their inquiries.
“If you’re unapologetic about your comments, Congresswoman, why not talk to us?” One reporter asked.
“Do you stand by your comments?” Another said.
