(Tea Party PAC) – Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib seems to be far less bold about calling Trump a “motherf*cker” now that the press is asking her about it.
“If you’re unapologetic about your comments, Congresswoman, why not talk to us?” reporters asked her as she fled from them on Friday.
The comments she made at a progressive gathering in DC to “impeach the motherf*cker” have gone viral, and her office doubled-down on the sentiment, claiming she was “elected to shake up Washington, not continue the status quo.”

She seems to feel far more comfortable “shaking things up” in front of a friendly crowd rather than the press, though.
Trump responded to Tlaib’s comments Friday, saying “I thought her comments were disgraceful…I think she dishonored herself, and I think she dishonored her family.”
