Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who is proud to be one of the members of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s squad, just told reporters that calling President Donald Trump “mother-f*cker” is how they talk in Michigan. She along with another squad member, Rep. Ilhan Omar, was laughing as they vowed to not apologize for any of their disgraceful remarks. Well, they both got a hardcore reality check. You’ll love this.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib said she doesn’t regret using obscene language about Donald Trump when she vowed to “impeach the motherf***er.”
“I didn’t do it on the House floor. I’m going to be unapologetic and myself. Seventy-seven percent of Americans curse. I’m real. This is who I am. I’m rooted where I come from, and it’s very common for me and my residents to say things like that,” she told CBS News in an interview that aired Wednesday.
The Michigan Democrat was asked if she regretted the use of her obscenity, which the president has criticized her for. “Absolutely not. I’m unapologetic about it. I’ll definitely-definitely push forward and say we have to impeach him,” she responded.
During the same interview with “CBS This Morning,” Rep. Omar denied having any regrets for remarks she made that were perceived by many to be antisemitic. The freshman Democrat lawmaker told CBS’s Gayle King her comments were not meant to be antisemitic.
“Oftentimes there are things that you might say that would not hold weight for you, but to someone else, right, the way we hear and consume information is very different from how the next person might be. Nothing I said was meant for that purpose.”
King followed up and asked if she had any regrets for those remarks.
“I do not, but I am grateful for the opportunity to really learn how my words have made people feel and take every opportunity I have to make sure people understand that I apologize for it,” Omar added. “I’m certainly not anti-Semitic.”
Omar says Trump’s “blatantly racist attack” on four women of color was “the agenda of white nationalists,” adding that the president would like “nothing more than to divide our country.” So, once again the Minnesota Congresswoman is calling Trump a “Nazi.”
In 2012, she tweeted: “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.” Local Jewish community leaders in Minnesota staged an intervention before she took up her seat in Congress — to no avail; she continued making offensive anti-Israel and antisemitic statements.
In February, Omar tweeted, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” suggesting (falsely) that a pro-Israel group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), bribed members of Congress to support Israel.
The squad’s new name is the “four horsewomen of the Apocalypse” said GOP Senator John Kennedy last night. It sure is looking that way based on new polling.
A new YouGov poll just came out and Omar and Tlaib better take notice. A YouGov survey this week finds that about 88 percent or nearly nine-in-ten, Republican voters said they thought the tweets were “great,” “good,” or “okay.”
Similarly, 90 percent of Trump supporters said they liked the president’s tweets, while less than ten percent called them “bad” or “terrible.”
Among Hispanic American voters, a majority of 52 percent said they liked Trump’s tweets and about 53 percent of white Americans said the same. Forty-eight percent of swing voters said they think the tweets are “great,” “good,” or “okay.”
So, Trump tweets, which the Democrats have focused so much attention on hasn’t hurt the president at all. This is a real reality check for Tlaib and Omar.
And if they need more evidence Americans despise them, they need to just check out social media.
“Then take that Flag you raised and go to that country and you can call our President a Motherf*cker all you want! But while in OUR house, You will Respect our house!” tweeted Craig Zinkoski to Tlaib.

Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar do not represent the majority of Americans who love this country. They do not respect those American families who have lost loved ones in service to America making the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom.
If they did, they would not hate this country. It’s perfectly fine to be a Democrat and serve in Congress as long as you love America. The disrespectful way they treat the office of the president proves they have no clue about this country’s rich history. They can’t be voted out soon enough. Maybe then we can restore order to Congress and get back to serving the American people.
