House minority leader Kevin McCarthy on Friday angrily complained about the lack of civility by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), who said on Thursday that House Democrats were going to "impeach" President Donald Trump -- whom she referred to as a "motherf*cker."
While holding court with reporters, McCarthy said that Republicans would never condone the use of such foul language.
"Do you know what happened in the last Congress when Republicans were in the majority?" he asked. "You know what our freshman class did? They put a resolution together to actually work with one another, to not use foul language. They got almost every single freshman to sign onto it! That is the difference with this new Congress and it's wrong."
A reporter, however, noted that Republicans have typically brushed off the need for civility when it comes to President Donald Trump.
"The president, not too long ago, referred to a woman as 'horse face,'" he pointed out. "Who within your caucus called out the president for that type of language?"
"I think a lot of them did," McCarthy said, without naming a single GOP lawmaker who actually did so.
