Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) made headlines around the nation last week when she called President Trump a “motherf*cker” while making a passionate vow to impeach him from office.
While civility weenies and hypocritical Republicans all clutched their pearls and succumbed to the vapors at the use of harsh language against the sitting president of the United States, it seems she’s broken the seal and paved the way for everyone to speak to the vile president with all the disrespect and disgust that he deserves.
Canada’s first and only woman prime minister, Kim Campbell, followed in Rashida’s footsteps and called Trump a “motherf*cker” in response to a story from POLITICO which reported that the President told furloughed federal workers that all the help they would be getting from him was a “strong border” to be their “safety net.”

Telling nearly a million people who are currently working without paychecks that the standoff to build a monument to racism in the desert is somehow going to benefit them is as delusional as it is cruelly dismissive of the very real material needs of those workers — like the need to pay for the roof over their head and the food on their tables.
One can certainly understand why former Prime Minister Kim Campbell felt the need to use such strong language against him, and why millions of Americans do explode with profanities every single day when the news of the president’s latest appalling decision hits the airwaves.
Of course, Campbell was immediately barraged by conservatives and pearl-clutching liberal enablers mewling for civility and eventually deleted the tweet, but not before screenshots were saved for posterity.
If the Very Serious Media and the right-wing want to whine and moan about civility in politics, maybe they should stop going out of their way to normalize and enable the racist carnival barker and unrepentant sexual predator who currently occupies the White House.
