Muslim Lawmaker Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’ Planning To Lead Trip to Palestinian West Bank Democratic Rep.
Rashida Tlaib of Michigan — who made headlines on Thursday by calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, while describing him as a “motherf—er” Tlaib, 42, is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants and joined Rep.

Tlaib attended a MoveOn rally in Washington, D.C., where she said, “(W)e’re going to go in there and impeach the motherf—er,” to the loud cheers of the crowd, according to Mediaite.
The lawmaker did not back down from her “motherf—er” description of the president despite receiving serious backlash from both sides of the political aisle.
Tlaib told The Intercept last month she plans to lead a congressional delegation to the West Bank, as a rebuke to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s trip for new members to Israel.
Rashida Tlaib Tlaib backs the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israel known as BDS, which is intended to punish the Jewish State for alleged human rights abuses.
Last summer, the Jewish Democratic Council of America came out forcefully against then-candidate Tlaib after she called for the U.S. to end aid to Israel, Haaretz reported.
Part of Tlaib’s antipathy toward Trump perhaps is based on his very pro-Israel stands.
He has been described as among the most pro-Israel presidents, particularly following his decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem last spring.
