Rashida Tlaib Launches 'Impeach the MF' T-Shirt Range: 'You've Asked for 'Em. And Now We've Got 'Em'

Rep. Rashida Tlaib is hoping to capitalize on the formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump by selling t-shirts with her catchphrase on the front.

The Detroit Democrat shared a link on Twitter where people can buy the $29 t-shirts with "Impeach the MF" slogan witten across it.

"You've asked for 'em. And now we've got 'em," the description page on the actblue.com website reads.

"We are at the most critical moment in our movement to impeach Donald Trump. We need to keep up the momentum and get even louder to make sure Congress acts swiftly and passes articles of impeachment against this lawless president."

The t-shirts's slogans are in reference to Tlaib's famous calling call in January, soon after she was sworn in as the first Palestinian-American into Congress. Speaking to a crowd at a Move On campaign party, Tliab recalled a conversation she had with her son.

"'Look, Mama, you won. Bullies don't win,'" Tlaib said. "And I said, 'Baby, they don't, because we're gonna go in there and impeach the motherf****r.'"

That call for Trump's impeachment was over allegations that his administration colluded with Russia to help him win the 2016 election. The recent impeachment inquiry was launched following accusations that Trump asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate his potential 2020 rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter for information ahead of the next election.

After receiving criticism for the comment, including from Trump himself, Tlaib has also been met with backlash over the explicit t-shirts.

"Can you imagine the outrage if I had put a t-shirt together like that for impeaching President Obama?" Republican Rep. Bill Huizenga of Zeeland told The Detroit Free Press.

"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?'

"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."

Michigan Republican Party chairwoman Laura Cox described Tlaib's efforts to sell the merchandise as proof that the impeachment inquiries against Trump are "nothing more than a partisan ploy by Democrats to fill their campaign coffers and appease the radical base."

Cox added. "The American people deserve real results, not another witch hunt Democrats want to go through."

As reported by Roll Call, Tlaib lead a crowd of demonstrators into a chant of "impeach the motherf****r" on the East Lawn of the Capitol the same day the T-shirts went on sale.
