Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) at an event on Tuesday said she is sorry that her "impeach the motherf--ker" comment about President Trump was a "distraction," adding she will not apologize for using the expletive itself.

"I am a person that is authentically me," Tlaib said on Tuesday. "I’m very passionate about fighting for all of us, and the use of that language was a teachable moment for me."

"I understand that I am a member of Congress and I don’t want anything that I do or say district us and that’s the only thing that I apologize for, that it was a distraction," Tlaib added.
