Among her entourage, a Palestinian-American comedian, Mo Amer, saw the map and added the Post-it, according to Buzzfeed News.

"I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language, I don't establish any language standards for my colleagues", Pelosi told MSNBC, "but I don't think it's anything worse than the president has said".

Such progressives will be eager to push back against an administration they believe has abused its authority in the almost two years since Trump's inauguration.

As reported by The Daily Wire, the new MI rep. told a group of hyped supporters, "We're gonna go in there and we're gonna impeach the motherf***er". "She ran and won by making this very clear to the voters in her district", McCampbell said.

In another tweet, the president claimed that he "won perhaps the greatest election of all time" and that he has "done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russian Federation, it was the Dems that Colluded)".

"We're going to go in there, and we're going to impeach the motherf***er", the Michigan Democrat said at Thursday MoveOn rally in Washington, D.C., drawing cheers and whoops from the crowd.

There has been some discussion in Trump's orbit about how to deal with a possible impeachment effort. Yes, she beat back efforts to deny her the speakership, but she's still in a tough spot - trying to keep a host of newly empowered lefties pulling in the same direction as more centrist members of her caucus, even as the GOP still controls the Senate and the White House. "That's going to be a test for her and her Speakership". House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hasn't ruled out impeachment but has called it a "divisive activity" that needs support from both parties.

A few Republican leaders were alongside the Democrats in condemning the congresswoman's comment about the president.

Many Democrats on Friday distanced themselves from Tlaib's words. House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said the comments were "inappropriate" and go against efforts to reclaim civility. Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind said. "I don't like that language", he said.

Sherman said that her comments were "not something I would say", though he was still pushing for impeachment.
