Many people are at a loss for words when it comes to Donald Trump.
However, newly elected Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib had one word to describe the President at a progressive organization MoveOn event, hours after she was sworn in on Thursday.
Tlaib, who is one of the first two Muslim women inducted into Congress, said of Trump:
"We're gonna go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf****r."
The derogation provoked much anger from congressional Republicans as well as from Democratic colleagues, according to conservative publication the Washington Examiner.
However, Samuel Jackson gave the Michigan Congresswoman's use of the expletive a huge endorsement. For the Snakes On a Plane actor, the expression is just routine, and he is often heard using it during tense situations is his films to comedic effect.Jackson tweeted on Sunday:
"@RashidaTlaib I just wanna Wholeheartedly endorse your use of & clarity of purpose when declaring your Motherf***** goal last week."
He was not finished. There were four other M.F.-bombs to drop in the same tweet.
"Calling that Muthafukkah a Motherfucker is not an issue, calling that Muthaffuqah President Is!!! #motherfuckeristoogoodtowasteonthatcankersore"
CBS News shared a YouTube video to demonstrate just how fluent Jackson is in provocative speak.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) also came to Tlaib's defense, calling out the hypocrisy of the President having used similar derogatory terms before.

Tlaib admitted on Tuesday that while she was "distracted" in using the disparaging comment, she believes that women "have every right to be angry and upset and mad and to curse" after she called for Trump's impeachment on Thursday, according to The Hill.
"I am a person that is authentically me," she said at a Michigan Veterans Foundation event.
"I'm very passionate about fighting for all of us, and the use of that language was a teachable moment for me."
After the freshman lawmaker was raked through the coals for using the word, Jackson made it very clear where the real issue lies, and Twitter agreed.

When asked if she would ever apologize for her indiscretion towards the President, Tlaib said:
"I want you to know that I will never apologize for being me and for being passionate and upset."
I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe— Rashida Tlaib (@Rashida Tlaib) 1546610880.0
