Rep. Rashida Tlaib Admits “This is Who I Am” When Asked About Her Potty Mouth
During an interview on CBS This Morning, host Gayle King questioned Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley about President Trump’s recent controversial statements.
Gayle King asked,“Congresswoman Tlaib, do you regret, it was your first day and you called the President of the United States, you said, ‘I’m going to, we’re going to impeach that motherf**ker.’ Do you think that kind of language is helpful and what did you hope would come of that? On your first day?”
Rep.Tlaib interrupted, and replied, “No. I mean from day one I truly believe that he has committed impeachable offenses. And, me–”
King said, “But even if you believe that, the fact that you called him.”
Rep.Tlaib answered, “But I didn’t do it on the House Floor. And I’m gonna be unapologetic in myself. Seventy percent of Americans curse. I am real. This is who I am. I’m rooted in where I come from and it’s very common for me and for many in my residence to say things like that. But– “
King asked,”So you don’t regret, you don’t regret that?”
Rep.Tlaib replied, “Absolutely not. I’m unapologetic about it. I’m definitely, definitely going to push forward in saying we have to impeach him.”
Rep.Tlaib interrupted many times throughout the full half-hour interview, speaking over King and other members of the Squad.
King also asked Rep. Ilhan Omar about remarks she’s made that many felt were antisemitic.
