Trump Says Rep. Tlaib's Comment Was 'Disgraceful,' 'Dishonored Her Family'

But Tlaib - one of the two first Muslim women elected to Congress in November - said she's okay with that reaction, according to CNN. She was pretty excited.

In a clip of the event circulated widely on social media on Friday, Ms Tlaib can be heard telling a crowd: "People love you".

"And I said, 'Baby they don't, because we're going to go in there and impeach the motherfucker", Tlaib continued to applause.

Pelosi said Thursday that she wouldn't rule out impeachment or the indictment of the president, but also said such actions would not benefit the country.

Tlaib's charged comments to supporters Thursday night reflect opinions she shared in an op-ed that the Detroit Free Press published earlier that day.

Conservative commentators wasted no time highlighting Tlaib's comments, and labeling her the "face" of the Democratic party.

He also vowed to protect the Russian Federation probe, following more than a year of taunts and complaints by President Trump that it constituted a "witch hunt" and calls by the president and his top aides and advisors for it to end.

"I think it's a forgivable sin, an outburst of exuberance with her and her supporters, and I think we all need to move on", he said. "He wins when we do it".

However, Tlaib's comment has elucidated a subtle but potentially consequential divide between more progressive factions of the Democrat party and the traditional stalwarts who have generally tried to avoid even using the "i" word.

"Ordinarily, I don't express myself in strong terms, but I thought it was appropriate here", Vice President Cheney told a supportive Fox News. "So we'll just have to see how it comes". New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, grabbing for the smelling salts, warned of dire consequences of De Niro's and other Trump opponents' use of such foul language in a June column with a headline that didn't age well, "How to Lose the Midterms and Re-elect Trump". "Impeachment is designed as a defense of the republic against a president who would aggrandize power, destroy liberty, destroy Democratic institutions, destroy the separations of power", he told CBS on Wednesday. The Senate then considers the charges with the chief judge of the Supreme Court presiding over the trial and the 100 senators serving as the jury.

Tlaib's comments were also soon met with outrage from the right. "Obviously, I am a member of Congress and things that I say are elevated on a national level, and I understand that very clearly".

"We have to follow the facts; we have to get the facts", he added.

"If you really don't like Trump, you shouldn't like this video, because this does the opposite of hurting him", The Reagan Battalion tweeted.

Of all the lines of attack available to him on Tlaib, this is the one he goes with.

"President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country".

With a tight smile, Pelosi rejected Tlaib's profanity and her impeachment vow.
