Rep. Tlaib defends vulgar attack on Trump from keyboard, but watch her run like heck from reporters

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, took to social media to boldly stand by the vulgar declaration on her very first day in office that “we’re gonna impeach the motherf–ker,” speaking of President Trump, of course.

But when presented with a golden opportunity to stand by her words on camera, the first Palestinian-American female lawmaker on Capitol Hill bobbed and weaved like Muhammad Ali.

To the point of her actions being almost comical, as seen in a video clip shared by The Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson, who tweeted:

“Oh man. After victoriously shouting to a cheering audience that she will “impeach the motherf–ker” Trump, Rep. Rashida Tlaib *literally* runs scared from reporters asking her if she stands by the comments. She’s new here so does not know where to go – lol.”

Odd behavior for one who speaks “truth to power,” as she proclaimed earlier from behind a keyboard.

“I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe,” the Democrat tweeted.

And to justify herself further, she followed that up by uttering some nonsense about a “constitutional crisis.”

“This is not just about Donald Trump,” Tlaib tweeted. “This is about all of us. In the face of this constitutional crisis, we must rise.”

The only thing “rising” in Washington, D.C., are socialists and hard left zealots who are quickly taking control of the Democratic Party.

And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has shown no inclination to rein them in, at least not publicly.

In fact, in responding to Tlaib’s vile language, Pelosi proved that despite the media adulation, she’s as much a partisan hack herself.

 

“I’m not in the censorship business,” Pelosi told MSNBC’s Joy Reid. “I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language… but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”

This being the crowd preaching to the nation about moral character.

“[Impeachment] is not position of the House Democratic Caucus, that is freedom of speech of an individual member…I don’t think we should make a big deal of it. That’s probably the way people talk,” Pelosi said. “Words weigh a ton, and the president has to realize his words weigh a ton too, and some of the words he uses have a direct impact on peoples’ lives. My colleague’s comments do not have an impact on peoples’ lives.”
