[Ed. – Manchin is a mensch.]
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he wants to apologize for a freshman Democrat’s profane comment on impeaching President Trump.
Appearing on Fox News on Friday, Manchin called Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s choice of words “deplorable.”
“I am so sorry. I want to apologize to all Americans, any sitting Congress person, there’s 535 of us there, 100 senators, and 435 Congress people. We should have better manners than that, I assure you,” Manchin said.
Hours after being sworn into office, Tlaib appeared at an event Thursday with left-wing activists. There a video captured of her saying to the crowd: “We’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf–ker.”
Some members of the new House Democratic majority have voiced support for impeachment proceedings against Trump.
