Before we dig into this story, I would first like to apologize to my dad, who once kindly suggested that I maybe, just maybe, give some thought to cussing less in my posts.

Dad, my condolences, but this will not be one of those posts.

Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib told a crowd of supporters at a swearing-in event that she, along with other progressive women recently elected to Congress, showed people that bullies like Donald Trump don’t win.

“Because we’re going to go in there, and we’re going to impeach the motherfucker,” she continued.

What came next was predictable. Conservatives got their collective drawls in a twist as they wrung their hands and mourned the loss of “civility” (as though forcing government employees to work without pay was a civil thing to do).

Now, let’s talk motherfuckers. More specifically, let’s talk about the foremost expert in motherfuckers, the Patron Saint of Motherfuckery, Samuel L. Jackson.

Jackson blessed many a Twitter timeline this past weekend when he “wholeheartedly” endorsed Tlaib’s “clarity of purpose when declaring your Motherfucking goal last week.”

I mean, motherfucker is as motherfucker does, after all.

Jackson then proceeded to spell “motherfucker” three different ways, because when you’re Sam Jackson, why the fuck wouldn’t you?

In conclusion, may God continue to bless Tlaib, Jackson, and all the artful motherfuckers we know.
