    Kim Campbell’s tweet came just a day after freshman Democratic congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was filmed calling for the impeachment of “the motherf**ker”, referring to US President Donald Trump.

    Former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell didn’t mince words while referring to US President Donald Trump in an explicit tweet, obviously alluding to a comment by newly-minted congresswoman Rashida Tlaib.

    She tweeted the profanity, having attached a video of POTUS speaking about the need to build a wall on the US-Mexico border to stem the flow of illegal migrants.

    Campbell’s Saturday tweet drew the ire of social media users, who blasted her for a lack of class:

    Some, however, voiced support for the former PM’s stance:

    Responding to the criticism, Campbell, who was Canada’s first and, to date, only female prime minister, sent out another tweet clarifying the reference to the congresswoman’s remark:

    Campbell’s tweet came on the heels of a scandalous comment by newly sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who vowed to “impeach the motherf**ker”, referring to Trump during a Thursday rally.

    Despite facing much backlash for her sharply-worded remark, Tlaib made it clear that she was unapologetic:

    Asked to address the comment, Trump slammed Tlaib’s words as disgraceful, adding that she had “dishonoured herself”.

    “I thought her comments were disgraceful. This is a person that I don’t know. I assume she’s new. I think she dishonoured herself, and I think she dishonoured her family. Using language like that in front of her son, and whoever else was there… I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America”.

    Tlaib, the first woman of Palestinian descent to be elected to the US Congress, is a vocal critic of Trump: last month she dismissed the president as “racist”, and said that she would “hold him accountable”.
