Newly inaugurated congresswoman, Rashida Tlaib, took a jab at U.S. President Donald Trump - vowing to impeach him. Speaking at a MoveOn.org event in Washington D.C., hours after being sworn into office, Tlaib used particularly colorful language to describe the president. 

Axios's Alexi McCammond reported that at the event Tlaib, quoting her son, said, “Look mama you won. Bullies don’t win," to which she replied, “You’re right, they don’t. And we’re gonna go in and impeach the motherfucker.”

During her swearing-in ceremony earier in the day, Tlaib was sworn in using Thomas Jefferson's Koran while wearing a traditional Palestinian thobe, an ankle-length garment, which according to Tlaib once belonged to her mother.

Tlaib was quoted in Glamour magazine explaining that “wearing my mother's thobe is a gift to her. Just like any immigrant parent, she wants her children to succeed, but without giving up our roots and culture. No matter where our parents are from, you can see the connection they're making in me wearing my mother's ethnic dress. It's exciting."
