Matthew Dowd wrote a piece for ABC News where he called for Rep. Rashida Tlaib to apologize for ‘cursing out Trump’ …
Guess even he thought her saying, ‘We’re going to impeach the mother f*cker’ was a little over the top.
Color us shocked.

From ABC News:
Why should she apologize? Here are just a couple of my reasons:
First, she should apologize for her language, not necessarily to President Trump. Yes, Trump has said and done much worse things, and has lowered the bar of appropriate discourse in our country. T
Second, from a purely political perspective, her comments aren’t helpful to the Democratic party in bridging divides and accomplishing what I know she wants to accomplish. In order to achieve success in politics, one must bring consensus to get the common good, and this kind of talk goes in the opposite direction of that.
Third, as Martin Luther King Jr., who stood strong against injustice, said: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Oooh, invoking MLK. Dowd means business.
First you should apologize for this op-ed, and yes, I know I'm contributing to the ratio.

1% of people also share this opinion. We already took a poll.

You report the news and we’ll have the opinion.

Isn’t it fun watching the media deal with the monster they created?
First – there is no consensus to be reached with Trump. Second – I'm personally inspired by a female politician who will be a badass and call it like she sees it. Third – this op-ed piece feels a bit too much like "good little ladies conduct themselves just so." NO

She does NOT have to apologize. AND For the record: A president lying in public is worse than a representative cussing in private.

Sorry to break it you Matthew but you're just dead wrong. This is the new reality because Donald the Mad King made it so…make him apologize and then I'll support your notion. He'll never apologize. Until he's out of office playing nice is off the table.

Women should never ever apologize for being equal and telling the truth. pic.twitter.com/gwPPiAoqK9
