Palestinian-American Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib will be sworn in to the US House of Representatives on Thursday, taking her oath on a two-volume Quran that belonged to one of the founding fathers of America, Thomas Jefferson. Tlaib revealed a conversation she had with her son, going on to say that President Donald Trump would be impeached.
"When your son looks at you and says, 'Momma, look!"
Tlaib opted to use the Koran instead of the Bible, during her ceremonial swearing-in but that outraged racists who apparently believe anyone who is not a Christian is an enemy.
But not even Democrats are welcoming Tlaib's comments. Rep. I think she dishonored herself and I think she's dishonored her family.

Talk of impeachment remains in the air, fueled by a handful of Democrats on Pelosi's left flank who are pressuring her to more aggressively pursue the issue.

The timing of the speech is unclear, since North Korea rarely provides advance notice about Kim's schedule. Kim said he was willing to meet Trump at any time and urged corresponding measures from the U.S.
Prior to making the comments, she had spoken about the meaningfulness of being a role-model for young girls. So it's not proper appropriate for Democrats or anybody in Congress to represent Americans and speak this way. Trump said Democrats would never impeach someone that is "doing a great job".
"We're going to go in there, and we're going to impeach the motherfucker", she said, drawing huge cheers from the crowd and hugging supporters afterwards. They are unlikely to get a vote on the House floor, at least for now.
"The only reason that they want to come after this president is because they know that they can't beat him", she told Fox News hosts. We'll see where the facts lead - and maybe that will lead to impeachment.
