Democratic Rep. John Garamendi disagreed with his new colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib's profane remark about impeaching President Trump.

Speaking at a party hosted by liberal group MoveOn.org Thursday night, Tlaib (D-Mich.) concluded her speech by telling her supporters about a recent conversation with her young son.

"When your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look! You won! Bullies don’t win,’ and I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re gonna go in there, we’re gonna impeach the motherf----r,” Tlaib said, drawing huge cheers.



On "America's Newsroom" Friday, Garamendi (D-Calif.) said Tlaib's comment was "certainly not appropriate," and the issue of impeachment is "not on the table."

"Whether it will ever be on the table, we'll have to await further developments from [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller and other investigations that are underway," Garamendi said.

He lamented the current lack of civility in U.S. politics, calling for both parties to get beyond the "harsh and uncivil" language that has become the norm since the 2016 campaign.

"Each of us, whether we're Democrat or Republican or president or any other position, has a responsibility of being civil," Garamendi said. "Deal with issues that are very, very controversial, but do it in a civil, polite way."

He said the priority for Congress right now is to end the government shutdown that has stretched into a 13th day, as Democrats and Republicans have been unable to compromise on funding for Trump's long-promised border wall.

"We've got to get on to our agenda, the healthcare agenda, the transportation, infrastructure, good-paying jobs [agenda]," Garamendi said. "All of those things are where we want to spend our time."

After the comments began to make the rounds Friday morning, Tlaib tweeted #unapologeticallyMe and said Democrats "must rise" to meet the "constitutional crisis" under Trump's presidency.
