Rashida Tlaib sworn in wearing Palestinian dress

When incoming USA congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is sworn into office Thursday, she will use Thomas Jefferson's centuries-old Quran.

Vice President Mike Pence, who subscribes to the Christian faith, swore in Tlaib and sent online racists and ring-wingers into a tizzy.

A newly-elected US Congresswoman has introduced herself to the nation by saying Democrats will impeach 'motherf*****' Donald Trump.

According to CNN, Tlaib will be sworn in on Thomas Jefferson's Quran, a symbol, Tlaib said, that "Islam has been part of American history for a long time". In the op-ed, Tlaib alleges, without evidence, that Trump "has committed impeachable offenses". I assume she's new.

"I thought her comments were disgraceful", Trump during a press briefing at the White House Friday.

Tlaib ran unopposed in her MI district after securing her party's nomination in August.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the new chair of the House Judiciary Committee, which oversees impeachment proceedings, has also been careful when discussing the idea of forcing Trump out of office. "Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people", Trump said of the Obama administration, the magazine reported.

The Michigan Democrat exclaimed at an event late Thursday that Democrats were going to impeach Trump, and called him a "Motherfucker".

Under the Constitution, presidents can be impeached and removed from office for "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanours".

Pelosi said Friday at an MSNBC town hall that she doesn't agree that the House should move to impeach Trump without more facts. She makes up what might be the most progressive freshman class in congressional history, and like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she's a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. "Bullies don't win.' And I said, 'Baby, they don't, because we're gonna go in there and we're gonna impeach the [expletive]", Tlaib said to an outburst of applause and cheers from her supporters.

Now, Tlaib is doubling down on her comment.

"We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason", Pelosi said on NBC's "Today". "We knew they couldn't help themselves".

In the speech, Trump ripped lawmakers, describing them as "bloodsuckers", and slammed Obama. "I'm proud of you", he said.
