Manchin Rips ‘Disgusting, Horrible’ Comments from Rep. Tlaib: Congress ‘Should Have Better Manners Than That’
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) scolded freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her comments about impeaching President Donald Trump.
By now, you’ve probably seen the video of Tlaib saying, “We’re going to impeach the motherfucker!” She was criticized by some fellow Democrats in response, and Trump himself said she “dishonored” herself and her family.
Tlaib has stood by her remarks, and this afternoon Manchin scolded her on Fox News:
“So disgusting. It was horrible, Neil. No one should approve of that, and I hope she doesn’t talk to her son that way either. You know, what can you say? I can’t in any way condone that. That’s not how we act in West Virginia. It’s not how we talk about public leaders. We might disagree with each other, but we try to get through it, we try to find a pathway forward. To act like that is awful and to speak like that is even more deplorable. I am so sorry. I want to apologize to all Americans, any sitting Congress person, there’s 535 of us there, 100 senators and 435 Congress people. We should have better manners than that, I assure you.”
Neil Cavuto raised the impeachment question, and Manchin said they should be waiting for the investigation first.
