Please, Trump says worse things than this before breakfast.

Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib declined to apologize for telling a crowd hours after she was sworn into Congress Thursday that “we’re gonna go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf***er,” referring to President Donald Trump. Tlaib received widespread backlash for her comments, including from some Democrats, but writing on Twitter Friday morning, she said she had no regrets.
“I will always speak truth to power,” she wrote, followed by the hashtag “#unapologeticallyMe.”
I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe

Good for her!
It may be a little less than diplomatic, but hell this is essentially what this new Congress was elected to do.
Of course, Fox News and the Right Wing are apoplectic over these remarks.
But isn’t that kind of the goal?
Tlaib was not alone in calling for Trump’s impeachment.
Here is what Rep. Brad Sherman of California tweeted out yesterday.

Not quite as colorful, but it sends essentially the same message.
