Newly Sworn in Dem Member of Congress: "We’re Gonna Impeach The Motherfucker!"

N’PEACH is way too civilized in response to the white trash supremacist terrorist attack over the last two years.

Prezinazi AntiChrist and his disgusting, moron-grifting, large adult children/cabinet traitors and accomplices should be dipped in barbecue sauce, then fed feet first to a dozen starving crocodiles on national television with slow motion instant replay in perpetuity.

Yawn

3

She is rightly proud to make the twerps clutch their pearls so quickly. Fox, er, Faux Outrage is all they have now.

4

Nobody in politics really gets angry or has their panties spontaneously wad up over this kind of stuff. They are probably laughing about it behind closed doors.

Everyone is just working whatever angle they feel they need to in order to harvest a few more votes or gain a bit of political capital. That is all that matters. Why do you think she said it in the first place? Do you really think it was spontaneous?

5

3 And again you have no point to make, just blather. We are not your parents who have to pretend you are smart, you know.

6

I just read an op-ed about haw republicans are the new "Punk Rock". Pretty obvious they are. I never heard a swear any time I went to RCKNDY and the doorman with the battery in his ear was always a gentleman.

7

Profanity isn't required to make a valid argument. Two wrongs (this plus Cheney or whomever) does't make a right. Her constituents, and all Americans, deserve the respect of an elevated decorum from our representatives.

9

Shit
Piss
Fuck
Cunt
Cocksucker
Motherfucker
Tits

If any of you shits are still offended by any of those words you can go fuck yourself, cunt.

10

@7 blatant lies and corruption like the revolving door are part of the elevated decorum owed Americans?

11

"Her [Truth to Power spokesperson Rashida Tlaib's] constituents, and all Americans, deserve the respect of an elevated decorum from our representatives."

Yeah, right. Until we get Big CA$H the fuck OUT of electing OUR Representatives -- money = free speech -- they can cuss and swear all their hearts desire. In my Book.

That's what We, the People deserve.

Not a lecture on "decorum."

12

Wait until SOTA. It'll sound like PMQT in the House.

13

TT, wtf is sota and pmqt, anyway?

14

@13, edited:

TT, wtf's sota & pmqt?

15

Trump will finish his term. That said the Democrats should focus on making sure they nominate someone electable in 2020 and avoid the Clinton clusterfuck of 2016.

17

@16 who are the 67 votes in the Senate to carry it to the end?

18

@4,

I think you underestimate the pearl clutching puritanicalism of some of those mid-westerners. You know the freaking vice president won't have dinner with a lady he's not married to... I'll concede that they're in the minority, but there's no doubt a faction of folks who were genuinely aghast at such a display. It's reprehensible that such folks can play such an important role in crafting our legislative agenda.

20

of course it isn't the end of the world, but i expect a semblance of tact and class from politicians. i know, sooo boring...

21

My first thought was: She's a Savage Love reader/listener. Good for her.

22

@7: I refer to you the former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, who said "when they go low, we go high".

23

@7, 20,

You know I don't disagree with either of you and it'd be nice if this type of thing weren't, at least on some level justified, but these don't seem to be ordinary times that we're living in. There are surely other means and methods to call attention to this fact, but this is one such method and I'm fairly certain it'll energize some folks.

24

I'll still ask: where are the 67 votes in the US Senate to remove Trump from office? And do the current articles of impeachment include that the remedy to an eventual conviction is removal from office? If not then the Senate could vote to convict but then decide Trump only gets censured and not removed from office.

Even when you are fighting an asshole you still have to be the adult in the room

25

@23: That's reasonable.

27

I'm sympathetic to those who express distaste for vulgarity & ugly profanities.
OTOH- an honest expression using a common colloquialism can be effective.
I think there is some sort of Overton Window effect from such usage that can gradually shift the entire greater discourse
. Passionate intensity does not need to be banished until it rises to the level of threats of violence.
ITMFA indeed!

28

I think when someone makes a prediction about events (like "Donald Trump will finish his term"), they should attach odds. Like, what kind of bet would they actually take. Even money? 5 to 8? 10 to 1?

Either outcome (finish term or not finish term) is possible. I'm not the first to observe that the GOP had Nixon's back until they didn't. If you tried to impeach him today, it would go no where. Who's to say what might be different in six months?

If nothing changes, then he won't be impeached & removed six months from now. But if something changes, maybe he will be. So what are those odds? You're betting on an unknown unknown.

29

Sounds like she's still campaigning. Someone should tell her the election is over and she won.

30

19
So I guess after you have been made to look the like the nutty fool you truly are, you have decided to not comment on the police shooting thread eh?

Ya, pretty much what I thought: that you would run away like a little bitch as soon as the facts came out So much for that big mouth of yours. Your bitch ass got punked

31

It's always extra deliciously ironic to see the panty pooping of the broflake brigade. Look'it em get'n all triggered when a lady swears!

Their president's own lawyer, campaign manager, deputy campaign manager and National Security advisor all admit to crimes involving a conspiracy with a former KGB agent... aaaand nope, doesn't bother them at all.

But a lady skips a couple pages in a speech or a lady uses a naught swear and hoo-boy do they go running to daddy crying.

32

@30
You totally destroyed his bitch ass narrative. You must be very proud of your accomplishment.

33

Well, how do we know he didn't fuck his mother? Based on his numerous marriages, divorces, remarriages, and extra-marital dalliances, not to mention his public utterances on the subject, clearly he's the type of guy who'll dip his dangle in just about any warm hole he can get access to; I mean he thinks his own daughter is hot enough to date, so it's not like doing his own mom is much of a stretch.

34

Not only a democrat and a woman, she is also of Palestinian origin. This is going to be a factor in the demonization campaign.

35

@33 I always though you could fuck someone else's mother to be a motherfucker. Didn't think it had to be your own.

36

32

How do the Sausage nuts taste? You seem to swallow them on a regular basis.

Just sayin

37

34 Oh yes, "minority female" translated to wingnut is "anti-christ." And gosh do they fear her.

38

@35:

If that were the case, literally every father who ever existed could be considered a "motherfucker".

39

It's impossible to calculate the effect her irresponsible statement will have on getting rid of Trump. I do know that she just made it that much harder to get a Senate conviction because there isn't a Republican in the country who wants to be seen siding with a foul-mouthed muslim socialist, even if they do agree with her. I know, what about Trump? As if he's somehow become the standard for political discourse. Keep it up and Mitt Romney will probably be our next president. And no

As a aside, the Strangers comment section is truly dreadful, and basically makes it impossible to have a serious discussion. Seattle's only blog? lol

40

@39:

Because the fact they wouldn't be caught dead siding with a Democrat wasn't enough? They certainly don't have any problem siding with someone who is on-the-record as saying: "I did try and fuck her. She was married...I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn't get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she's not got the big phony tits and everything...I've got to use some Tic-Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a big star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything." So, I don't see why they should have a problem with Congressperson Tlaib's equally colorful phrasing.

41

@33: Typically, narcissists such as Trump don't have an oedipus complex because narcissism is about love of the self; Oedipus is about separating and externalizing love of another (the mother) from the self.

42

@38 not quite. Plenty of dudes take off to Florida before she gives birth. Unless she already has a kid it is possible to be a father but not a motherfucker.

43

@42:

Granted, but anyone who has ever fucked a mother - their own, someone else's, or the mother of their own children - is by-definition a "motherfucker"

44

@36

You must be a very proud boy.

45

"I'd like to think that Rep. Tlaib is familiar with—and perhaps was even referencing—my ITMFA fundraising campaign."

That was my conclusion; I think she's a fan, Dan!

46

u insult u @ 37
Tlaieb being a Palestinian will be played as, “We republicans are defending [Netanyahoo’s] Israel while democrats are led by anti Semitic members of congress.”

47

ITMFA! ITMFA! ITMFA! ITMFA! ITMFA! WA-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
@1 Original Andrew for the WIN, baby!!

Wow! Is that indie filmmaker Nicole Holofcener wearing the hot pink ITMFA hat? You GO, girl!

@44 seatackled: No, he's just a trolling Trumpist dumbass.

48

No anguish here, just another person added to my Never List. Yes, the reason is FTWL, but I'll live with that. Case closed.

49

What is wrong with these old Democrats.. why aren’t they all talking Impeachment? This man is crazy as fuck, so what are they waiting for. The markets are volitile, people are walking off important jobs because they aren’t getting paid, the National Parks are being trashed. Etc. Etc. what does need to happen before US citizens scream for his Impeachment.
And there’s Ellen trying to get homophobe Kevin back on track to host the oscars.
Trump has gone feral, he must be Impeached. Good on this woman and may she and her fellow new Congress members not forget why they are there. If the old guard don’t listen, it’ll be their seats next time. Enough with this polite bs.

50

@39; my my.. how you lot are coming out of the woodwork now some real people are in Congress.
As an aside, nobody asked you to join us, so run along.

51

@33 Nah, he wouldn't have fucked his own mother. He only fucks women much younger than he is, remember? 😜

52

So they don't have the votes in the Senate needed to remove Trump from office. Call me when they do: then all of this wonderful virtue signally will end up meaning something

53

Nightime'screamer:

The Repubs in the Senate are gonna be the Chief Impeachmentors -- Trumpfy's gonna keep on Pushin', till even they will Take No More.*

So yeah -- don't call us -- we'll call you.

*they got their Trillion point five Tax Cut
they got their Supremicist Court well-stacked with far far alt right wing Extremists (plus a red-nosed/-necked Lush).

Why on Earth do they still need herr Furor?
Other than for qll the the Distracting, of course.

54

I have respect for her chutzpah- gumption, nerve.
So she swore. Big deal. The real obsenity is a president and administration with no values no ethics, that promote bigotry and hate all day long every day.

The streets are full of homeless people many of whom are the best people. The health care system is crumbling. Tons go hungry.. Guns and killing are rampant. Children are put in cages and die there. He uses his office to sell his brand. The planets very survival is unlikely. We drop bombs on innocent people on other countries.

He and his administration are the very definition of obscenity.

We don't need a wall. I am NOT AFRAID OF IMMIGRANTS!! I AM AFRAID OF HAVING A MAD MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

HE IS NO FRIEND OF POOR WHITE PEOPLE. HE IS DESTROYING THEIR LIVES ALONG WITH ALL of tge people who live here.

POOR WHITES ARE SUFFERING along with everyone else and ALL OF OUR SUFFERING NEEDS TO BE TAKEN OF. CARE OF. HE JUST KNOWS HOW TO PROMOTE DIVISION AND HATE.

Poor Whites are not suffrering becsuse ofpeople of color. Whitesare suffering becuz this economic system is eating us all alive.

THE PROBLEM IS NOT THAT SHE CALLED HIM A MOTHER FUCKER.. THE PROBLEM IS THAT HE IS A MOTHER FUCKER. AND HE AND ALL HIS HENCH MEN NEED TO GO NOW.

GOOD FOR HER FOR SPEAKING THE TRUTH. AND I AM A JEW!!

55

@1: I think the alligators should be provided an assortment of dipping sauces, not just BBQ.

56

@2, @30, and @36 Trump_Destroyed_my_brain: What's the matter, are things a little slow down at juvee?
@49 LavaGirl: Spot on! Agreed and seconded.
@54: Thank you.
@55: I agree, as long as the dipping sauces aren't from McDonald's. Alligators deserve something healthier and infinitely tastier to help wash away all that gawd-awful taste of RepubliKKKan pork fat and gristle.

57

@39: Gee, for so proudly ignorant a troll you really have pathetically little to say or contribute, especially from your mother's dank, dark fruit cellar, Norman. Is the formaldehyde making you dizzy?

58

@24
Ask someone that was around when Nixon went down how strong support nearly instantly turns into rats deserting a sinking ship. Nixon had many more legislative accomplishments and a stronger approval rating. He still went ass over tea kettle in a relatively short time. When those in the Senate start to be burned by the dumpster fire that is Trump they'll bail out and leave him hanging.

59

"He [Trump] and his administration are the very definition of obscenity." --Serach, just above

Your passion matches the Calamity about to befall us.
Well said.

60

58

From the wikis: "Once the 'smoking gun' tape was made public on August 5, 1974, Nixon's political support practically vanished. The ten Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee who had voted against impeachment in committee announced that they would now vote for impeachment once the matter reached the House floor.

He lacked substantial support in the Senate as well; [Senators] Barry Goldwater and Hugh Scott estimated no more than 15 Senators were willing to even consider acquittal. Facing certain impeachment in the House of Representatives and equally certain conviction in the Senate, Nixon announced his resignation on the evening of Thursday, August 8, 1974, effective as of noon the next day."

Say -- didn't one of Trumpfy's many corrupt (only The Best people!) Lawyers make some (incriminating) tapes, or threaten to have some, featuring our dear Dealmakers' (most likely illegal) deals?

Almost time for Popcorn!
Awesome!

61

@52

It's virtue 'signaling,' midnight'screamings; say -- is that anything like believing, defending and supporting Trumpfy's multitudinous Lies = Political Correctnesss?

'Cause one'd hafta be a mental gymnast of Olympian purpotions / caliber to swallow whole those thorny Zingers, without the help of a little bit o' Brainwarshin'.

62

LavaGirl: Hate to tell ya, but hysterics ain't gonna get rid of Trump. Walk softly and carry a big stick. Settle down. Do some deep breathing (four seconds in, eight seconds out). It's ok. The adults will take care of Trump. People like you will simply get in the way.

63

Griz - I don't know where you people come from, but thank god I don't have to spend any time around you. I know, Bernie would have won. BTW, right now I'm on my yacht on the ship canal, riding out a great storm. Seemed like more fun than hanging out at my place on Queen Anne. High IQ. Highly educated. Mom died years ago. You?

64

@62, why are you still hanging around?
Like I said, run along, that’s a good boy.

65

I read one of the new LawMakers is putting up to get rid of the Electoral College. Why isn’t that front page news.
The EC has got to be dealt with, it creates a totally unfair playing field no matter how you look at it. Votes need to be as close to equal in value for each citizen to have their democratic power in electing POTUS, and that isn’t happening.

66

LavaGirl: I'm not sure that commenting every few months qualifies as "hanging around". But after reading the above post (65), it's pretty obvious that you're as dumb as a post. That can't be fun or easy and I'm ashamed of myself for triggering you. I apologize. Good luck.

67

@63: LOL I really enjoy your blatant lies about having vast wealth, MENSA level intelligence, and your yacht. Don't tell me, let me guess: it's big enough to fit inside.... your mom's bathtub! Oh, but a little boy can dream. Your self-induced shitstorms must be exhilarating fun, Spaceman Spiff. I hope you pass the first grade this year. Tell Hobbes and Susie hi. Watch out for Moe.

68

@66: Oh, so you admit to being mud spelled backwards, SuperGenius?
What an ultra-moroon.......

69

I believe that griz and lava are the same person. "SuperGenius", "LawMakers", "LavaGirl". Thin skin, same insults, same sophomoric and semi-literate writing style, non-sequiturs, wild accusations....yup, same person. Probably a guy as well. A very sad guy and angry guy. Hate myself for trolling you, but geez, you do make it fun. I will endeavor to be a better person in 2019.

70

Listen you tool @66, troll; you’re the one who said slog was, you know, not up to standard, yet you are continuing to be here talking bs.

71

And no good luck for trolls landing on @69, if you were hoping for that.

72

yawn

73

@69 ultra-moroon5000 and @72 Trump_destroyed_my_brain: You bozos don't know LavaGirl or me for shit. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if you were scared shitless of women. Don't cry to me if masturbating and praying for the magic number is the best sex you'll ever get. And you pathetic trolls wonder why you're dateless and flaccid.

74

@58 The Old Soundman and @60 kristofarian: I was ten when Nixon went down in flames and am more than ready to see Humpty Trumpty roasted, toasted, dipped in BBQ sauce and fed to swamp gators. May this truly be the death of the GOP. Finally.
@69 ultra-moroon5000: Did your mom bust you yet for flooding the basement, Calvin? Maybe you shouldn't engage in reckless water sports indoors, especially if your pipes freeze up.
Yep.....and the hits just keep on comin'!

75

Lava and griz are most definitely one and the same - the two successive posts by each identity being the final clue. And oh yes, I'm terrified of woman. That's why my SO is a tougher than nails, highly successful, world traveling, Brooklyn Jew who's two inches taller than I am, and a real beauty. And who would be mad as hell if she knew I was tormenting twits like you. We all have our secrets. Like your two identities. Only my secret shall remain a secret - she doesn't read The Stranger. Crosscut, the NYT and The Economist are more her style. Nighty night, grilava.

76

What a tosser, eh Grizelda. Obviously put out because he couldn’t get the @69 good luck. Sounds like he needs it, check out his imaginary partner!
Maybe when he returns in another guise he’ll behave himself.

77

75

Nah, they aren’t the same loser.
One is a jobless shut-in on disability living in Bellingham, and the other is in Australia.

78

Tlaib is really a plug ugly cunt.

79

Aren’t you boys attractive.
Grizelda @77, is an accomplished musician and composer whose work has been played publicly. It’s true, I do reside in Australia.

80

@75, @77, and @78: Oh, gee, look, kiddies! It's Moe, Larry, and Curly! Three Stooges--no waiting! N'yah N'yah N'yah! Whap!
@75 Moe5000: Wow. For a big ugly, inarticulate troll with SO much to spew you still don't know squat about me. Further proof: you felt the need to sic your imaginary dog on me? LOL Go
back and play with your bath toys, Calvin. Try not to get stuck in the drain pipe.
@76 LavaGirl: I know, right?
@77 Trump_destroyed_my_brain: Whatever my situation and LavaGirl's, I'll take mine any day and three times on Sunday over your pathetic flaccid, uneducated life, rotting in your mom's basement with the canned peas.
@78 Desperate Troll: And you're among the most pathetic of trolls. Your point? Oh, THAT's right---you don't have one except at the top of your cement head. Why don't you go do something useful, instead, like fill up the cesspool that is Trump's mouth and Mar-a-Lago?

81

Whoooooo---EEEEEEEE! Trumpty Dumpty is going down in FLAMES and Griz can't wait. No wonder the stupidest of trolls are getting more desperate by the day. And all because they won't get their shots.

82

@79 LavaGirl: Thank you Lava, and bless you.

83

@ mfg5000 - Seattleblues, is that you? You've traded your house in Italy for a yacht and your black wife for a Jewish one, but you remain stupid enough not to realize that only people with a low IQ brag about it being high.

84

@83 Ricardo: Yo te amo, cara mia!

85

Hey Ricardo, Happy New Year.

86

Desperate Troll @78: the expression is "pug ugly". Seems you've confused that with your butt plug which is undoubtedly "plug ugly". Also, please don't use the term "cunt" disrespectfully. A cunt delivered you into the world.

87

What the hell happened here? I was away for a couple of days, only to return and discover the place is full of trolls. In particular, @75 who is trolling here without the permission of his taller-than-him "Brooklyn Jew" Domme, who would be "mad as hell if she knew". Fake, fake, fake, of course, but honestly, dear regulars, don't feed the trolls. Happy 2019 to all.

88

Griz - And may the new year bring you funnel webs, irukandjis and boxes, taipans and browns, blue ring octopi, cone snails, salt water crocs, and enough racists to shake a didjeridoo at!

89

Thank you fubar, I hate that word used as a slur. It shows the person is another sexist piece of shit.
Don’t worry Grizelda, no salt water croc is ever gonna get me. Racists are everywhere troll, and you don’t shake a didjeridoo, you play it. Such ignorance.

90

@ 88 - I see you didn't answer me. Just like old turd Seattleblues.

91

Griz @ 84 - Anch'io te amo.
Lava @ 85 - Happy new year to you too, Lava!

92

Sorry, that was "ti amo". (PS: your post is a mix of Spanish and Italian, Griz, I'm getting confused)

93

@87 fubar: Thank you, fubar. While I know better than to feed the usual trolls, I didn't start the fire in this thread. Mfg5000 insisted on engaging in water sports, sending the game into extra innings. Hopefully mfg5000 (a.k.a. Seattleblues) finally lost steam. Maybe it's bedtime down at juvee.
@88 Moe5000: Rattling off your 2019 Christmas list already, Calvin? Did you get coal in your stocking last year? That's what you get for voting RepubliKKKan. For someone blowing so much hot air you ironically have no grasp of a didjeridoo, either. Pitiful.
@92 Can't Griz be multilingual? Both Spanish and Italian are romantic languages, after all. But I'm glad you could still read through the translation. hee hee Happy New Year, Ricardo!
XO,
Griz

94

@89 LavaGirl: Did you mean @88? Yes, I agree--he is indeed woefully ignorant.
