Representative Rashida Tlaib Wants To Fu...Er, Impeach President Trump

Jan 7, 2019

The reactions to Representative Rashida Tlaib's profanity and her calls for impeachment against the president have been mixed.

While most Republicans are in sync in their outrage over her comments, Democrats are further apart. 

Some are cheering her on. Others fear she'll jeopardize long-term political and policy objectives. Some can't figure out which word upsets them more: her profanity or her rush to impeach before she's unpacked her boxes. And then there are the bigger questions about the value of civility and how race and gender influence reactions. 

Also this hour: A record number of Americans want to leave America, er, permanently.
