Trump, Who Condemned Dem For Calling Him ‘Motherf–ker’, Called Chinese ‘Motherf–kers’ In Speech

President Donald Trump and his supporters have ripped into Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) for calling the president a “motherf***er” last week, but a recently resurfaced video from 2011 shows Trump himself using the term to describe the Chinese.

During a campaign event in Las Vegas, shortly before bowing out of the 2012 presidential race, Trump railed against Chinese exports flooding America, Huff Post reported on Saturday.

“So easy. I’d drop a 25 percent tax on China,” Trump told a packed audience about his plan to combat the issue.

“And I could say: ‘Listen, you motherf***ers, we’re gonna tax you 25 percent,’” he added. Applause and laughter filled the room.

But the reaction from the president and his supporters have been resoundingly different in the wake of a similar comment made by Tlaib.

Hours after being sworn in, Tlaib told her supporters on Thursday it was time to “impeach the motherf***er,” referring to the president.

“I thought her comments were disgraceful,” the president told reporters outside the White House Friday. “I think she dishonored her family using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there. I thought that was a great dishonor to her and to her family.”

House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she “wouldn’t use that language” but that she is “not in the censorship business.”

“I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language, but I wouldn’t establish any language standards for my colleagues,” Pelosi told MSNBC. “But I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said,” she added.

Others also pointed to the Access Hollywood recording, in which Trump discussed a woman he tried to “f*ck” off camera. “I moved on her like a bitch … You can do anything. Grab ’em by the p*ssy,” he said.

As the HuffPost notes:

Trump’s Vegas speech in 2011 was peppered with bleeps on the ABC News story covering his appearance. When a member of the audience was asked if someone who “drops that many F-bombs” could become the GOP presidential nominee, the man replied: “I think he needs to work on that a little bit.”
