Rashida Tlaib Cashes In with ‘Impeach Trump’ T-Shirts
Freshman congresswoman releases vulgar anti-Trump merchandise
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has cashed in on Nancy Pelosi's decision on Tuesday to launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump by selling t-shirts branding the slogan, "impeach the MF."
“Lean in with me to hold this lawless President accountable. Together, we will fight back and protect our democracy,” Tlaib tweeted with a link to the apparel.
“Our country depends on it! … and yes you can even wear what you feel.”
The congresswoman then sent out an email to her constituents introducing the new line centered around her anti-Trump battle cry.
The t-shirts come in 2 designs, each with three different color choices, with the phrase “Impeach the MF.”
One shirt will set you back $29.
Just hours after Tlaib was sworn into Congress in January, she vowed to go after Trump during an event hosted by the progressive organizations MoveOn.org and New American Leaders.
Tlaib shouted at a crowd of liberal that she is going to go in and “impeach the motherf****r.”
Despite the profanity drawing criticism, she decided to make the vulgar statement as an anti-Trump rallying cry.
Tlaib’s new t-shirt line comes days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Pelosi said, "the president must be held accountable" for the "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections."
Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI), slammed Tlaib for her inappropriate merchandise.
“Can you imagine the outrage if I had put a t-shirt together like that for impeaching Obama?” Huizenga told The Detroit News following its release.
“First of all, my mother would have called me and told me, ‘shame on you.’ Then I would have heard from my Republican colleagues asking me, ‘What in the world are you doing?'” He continued.
“Then I would have to face myself in the mirror and my kids and explain what’s going on, at the same time, I’m getting preachy about decorum and how we need civility in politics.”
Tlaib has become a prominent voice for Trump's impeachment.
In March, Tlaib (D-MI) continued her calls for trump's impeachment, despite Mueller's report on the Russia probe completely exonerating him of the allegations.
“We have a duty in this chamber to inquire about these acts, to investigate them, find out if there was any wrongdoing and seek accountability if any has been found,” Tlaib said at the time.
“If, at the end, it gets the president to comply [with the law], then we did our job. If the president doesn’t, we move forward and at the very least put any future presidents on notice that Congress will hold you accountable and will require you to divest.”
