One of two Muslim women to be elected to Congress, Rashida Tlaib, was heard using profanity at a reception after being sworn in to Congress on Thursday. She's out of Michigan and just hours after being sworn in, shes out there speaking to supporters telling about an exchange with her son saying that: "And when your son looks at you and says, 'Momma, look you won. Bullies don't win.' And I said, 'Baby, they don't.'"She went on to swear in front of the supporters saying this:
We can only imagine she didn't use that language in front of her son, but only to the crowd. Still, that's a public speech and it can't be hidden from him forever. Here she is with such an accomplishment as being one of two Muslim women who have been nominated to Congress for the first time ever and the first thing she does is use profanity in reference towards the highest held position in the country and insults the office of the president in such a fowl way. Regardless of your personal feelings about the guy, that's tasteless no matter what way you look at it. Even newly appointed Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi disagreed with the language and spoke out about it during a town hall meeting this morning:
Well the Democrats are kicking off 2019 on a high note, huh? I hope the American people are happy with their election choices. I'm all about diversity and I welcome it. I'm happy two Muslim women were nominated to Congress but I'm not happy one of them uses this type of language during a political reception and insults the office of the president (regardless of their personal feelings). I understand POTUS Trump has used very distasteful language as well and I don't agree with that either but two wrong don't make it right.
What's your thoughts?
