Thursday was a historic day for the U.S. Congress, as it welcomed a record number of women and many other firsts in its 116th class. Among them was congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who is one of the first two Muslim woman elected to serve in congress, and the first-ever Palestinian American representative. 

A few hours after being sworn in, Tlaib spoke at an event hosted by the progressive group MoveOn and reflected on her election and the moment "when your son looks at you and says, 'Mama, look, you won. Bullies don't win.'" She continued: "And I said, 'Baby, they don't. Because we're gonna go in there and we're gonna impeach the motherfucker," Tlaib said. 

Right-wing critics with wavering morals quickly began attacking Tlaib for her profanity, despite Donald Trump's own frequently disrespectful language and "locker room talk." 

As backlash rolled in Friday morning, Tlaib remained steadfast with her comment tweeting, "I will always speak truth to power."

According to CNN, her office also released a statement Friday that read, "The Congresswoman absolutely believes he needs to be impeached."

"She ran and won by making this very clear to the voters in her district," the statement said. "Donald Trump's actions have harmed the 13th Congressional District and this country, and Congresswoman Tlaib will not stay silent while this happens."

Rashida Tlaib ran her campaign on the prospect of impeaching Trump, although many Democrats remain wary of using that word. Trump referenced the possibility of his impeachment in a couple tweets on Friday morning, without mentioning Tlaib directly. 

One thing remains. Tlaib said what she said. 

The new congresswoman from Michigan also went viral on Thursday after being sworn in wearing a traditional Palestinian robe, and thanks to her adorable sons dabbing in the House of Representatives.
