"You don't need the foul language, it just makes yourself look bad and others", Kay Moore said.

Tlaib's defiance flew in the face of Speaker Nancy Pelosi's warning to focus on policies the candidates had promised ahead of the November 6 elections.

Tlaib's call to impeach Donald Trump isn't a surprise.

The drumbeat elicited a response from Trump, who said in a pair of tweets, "They only want to impeach me because they know they can't win in 2020, too much success!"

"I do think that we want to be unified and bring people together".

Less than two years later, a Palestinian-American woman walked into the United States capitol building in Washington as a member of Congress, wearing a Palestinian thobe.

The newly sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib is not holding back on how she feels about President Trump.

In the case of Tlaib, Baddar stressed that she was not elected because she is Palestinian.

In November, alongside Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib became one of the first two Muslim women ever elected to the House of Representatives and the first ever Palestinian-American.

Even if the House advances any articles of impeachment, a two-thirds-majority vote to convict Trump in the Republican-controlled Senate and remove him from office would seem out of the question, barring astonishing new revelations.

Some of Pelosi's fellow Democrats have already hinted that these oversight investigations could lead to impeachment proceedings against Trump, depending on the findings of committee hearings and special counsel Robert Mueller's separate findings from his investigation into the 2016 presidential election and alleged Russian interference.

Pelosi and other party leaders have tried to tamp down impeachment talk, preferring to instead keep their powder dry.

Tension over impeachment is likely to be a persistent thorn for Pelosi, who will have to balance between a small, vocal group of the most liberal members of her caucus, who want to see Trump removed immediately, and the majority of her members who want to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation to finish.

A lawmaker calling for Trump's impeachment is nothing new.

"Mueller hasn't even produced his report yet!" said Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. At an MSNBC town hall on January 4, Pelosi said of Tlaib's comment, "I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language".

After the furor over the comment hit social media, Tlaib responded from her Twitter account on Friday.

Helpful for what, though, I'm not sure. "I'm proud of you", he said.

I love Michelle Obama's message of "When they go low, we go high".
