Trump: Rep. Tlaib ‘Dishonored Herself’ and Her Family, Comments ‘Disrespectful’ to the Country

President Donald Trump today fired back at freshman congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) for her comments that “we’re going to impeach the motherfucker.”

Tlaib has stood by her comments so far. Speaker Nancy Pelosi said today she doesn’t like the language, but added it’s no worse than what the President has said.

When asked about her remarks today, Trump first reiterated his earlier comments that you can’t impeach a president who’s doing a great job.

But he criticized Tlaib a little more directly as well:

“I thought her comments were disgraceful. This is a person that I don’t know, I assume she’s new, I think she dishonored herself and I think she dishonored her family. Using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there––I thought that was a great dishonor to her and her family. I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America.”
