'Boo-Boo Words': Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, Omar Downplay Profane Impeachment Vow
Tlaib after swearing-in: We'll 'impeach the mother****er.'
Just after taking office last month, the Detroit representative made headlines with the profane proclamation to her supporters about possibly removing President Trump from office.
In an interview on Showtime's new "Desus & Mero" show, Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota embraced their reputations as the new "radical" members of Congress. Ocasio-Cortez joked about the "boo-boo word" uttered by Tlaib, but dismissed the resulting outrage.
"Rashida got into a little trouble for saying a boo-boo word," Ocasio-Cortez recalled.
"I hit up Rashida, I sent her a text and was like, 'Don’t worry about it. Like, who cares?' And she was like, 'Yeah, I'm from Detroit. Back there that's what we call a guy.'"
Tlaib agreed, explaining, "Honestly. That's [like] saying 'that guy.'"
Omar argued there is a "double standard" for President Trump "for all of the boo-boo words he uses."
"That's right," said Ocasio-Cortez, adding that all three are trying to "[keep] it real with people" since arriving in the nation's capital.
Omar, who issued an apology recently for an anti-Semitic tweet, acknowledged the trio "have a beef" with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
“There’s a lack of courage and it seems like we’re radical because we deeply care about the people we represent and we want to throw down for them," she said.
