  • Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib Will be Sworn in Using Thomas Jefferson's Quran

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi excused freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's language in a now-viral vulgar video calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Friday.

"I believe in secular government (and) my swearing in on the Koran is about me showing that the American people are made up of diverse backgrounds and we all have love of justice and freedom", she said.

On Friday, Trump asked in a tweet: "How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong" and has had the "most successful two years of any president". "Bullies don't win.' And I said, 'Baby, they don't, because we're gonna impeach the mother***er'".

Tlaib of MI, a Palestinian-American, was one of the first two Muslim women to take her seat in the House - and she shared her heritage proudly.

Thursday night wasn't the first time Tlaib has advocated for impeaching Trump.

'President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country, ' she wrote. Looking for a straightforward account of Tlaib talking trash, I find Mark Osborne's ABC News story.

Sarri added: "For 85 minutes we were in full control without conceding anything to the opponents". Higuain, who played under Sarri at Napoli, is now on loan at AC Milan from Juventus.

A comment that set social media on fire, making headlines everywhere and drawing strong criticism from the president Friday afternoon. "But I wouldn't establish any language standards for my colleagues, (and) I don't think it's anything worse than what the president has said". And while Tlaib's "impeach the motherfucker" comment was made in a bar at a MoveOn gathering, Dick Cheney told Leahy off on the floor of Congress-not in a bar. "I like that it's kind of pushing against the stereotype that somehow we're new to this country". "I think the office of the presidency should be treated with respect".

Republicans, they argued, would hold it up as proof that Democrats are playing politics rather than pursuing genuine oversight of the president - even if the GOP never showed interest in investigating Trump scandals while it was in power.

Jefferson's Quran was also used by Democratic U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison in 2007 when the Minnesota congressman took his own oath of office, according to The Washington Post.

The remark came hours after Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) re-filed articles of impeachment against Trump.

The 116th US Congress has a record number of women in its ranks with 102 women in US House of Representatives and 23 women in the Senate.
