Manchin Apologizes to ‘All Americans’ After New Dem Congresswoman’s ‘Disgusting’ Impeachment Call

During a recent interview, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) slammed Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for her expletive-filled calls to impeach President Donald Trump.

Manchin spoke out about the issues he had with the way that the newly elected lawmaker spoke about the country’s leader. As IJR previously reported, the video showed Tlaib speaking to a crowd of supporters, saying that “we’re going to go in and impeach the motherf**ker.”

Watch the video below:

“So disgusting. It was horrible, Neil. No one should approve of that, and I hope she doesn’t talk to her son that way, either,” Manchin said. “You know, what can you say? I can’t in any way condone that. That’s not how we act in West Virginia. It’s not how we talk about public leaders.”

Watch the video below:

Trump also spoke out about the comment, saying that it was “disrespectful.” Manchin also agreed, saying that instead of divisive rhetoric, lawmakers should attempt to work together.

“We might disagree with each other, but we try to get through it, we try to find a pathway forward,” Manchin said. “To act like that is just awful, and to speak like that is even more deplorable.

“I am so sorry,” he added. “I want to apologize to all Americans, any sitting congressperson — there’s 535 of us there, 100 senators and 435 congresspeople. We should have better manners than that, I assure you.”

    What a nice guy. Apology accepted. There seems to be a lot of trailer trash in congress right now.

    I have always liked Sen. Manchin. It is a shame that such an awful comment was made by the newcomer. Can you imagine walking into a new corporate job and immediately saying that to the boss? You would be walked right out the door with no reference and a post on the internet to
    ruin your life forever. For this creature to say such a thing in front of young children? Unforgivable I’m afraid.
