Nearly 180,000 sign petition to impeach Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib who called Trump “motherf**er”
A Change.org petition calling for the impeachment of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI-13) already has close to 160,000(almost 180,000 currently) signatures.
"This woman's an anti-Semite, a war mongering hate filled Palestinian who's vowed to try and destroy our constitutional rights, hates America, hates American citizens," the petition states. "She’s a danger to our sovereignty, a detriment to society and to this country and is unfit to serve in any capacity within our government."
The petition also takes issue with Tlaib’s election, claiming that she "lied about living in Detroit" by "using her father’s house address."
Tlaib made headlines earlier this week when she vowed to "impeach the motherfucker" during a party in celebration of her being sworn in to Congress.
"I stand by impeaching the president of the United States. I ran on that," she said in an interview discussing her comments. She called her promise to impeach President Donald Trump something she "very much" holds "dearly."
"They love that I’m real and that I'm very much focused on getting the government back up and running, but also making sure we’ve held the president of the United States accountable," she said.
Tlaib later apologized that her comments caused a "distraction," but refused to apologize for the explicit remarks
