Dem Rep: 'Impeach The Bastard Right Now'

November 19, 2019

Rep. Dina Titus (D., Nev.) told a Nevada crowd Tuesday that she would like to "impeach the bastard right now" as public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump proceed in Washington, D.C.

"Frankly, I think the House is going to do it, and I'd like to impeach the bastard right now," Titus told the crowd, which cheered in response. "But we're not sure what the Senate's going to do, so it's up to us to be ready to take him out in November 2020."

Titus also stressed that the 2020 election is "the most important election of your lifetime" because "the heart and soul of our nation are on the ballot."

"It's going to be up to you all," she said. "That's why our caucus is so important. It's the first step to getting this con artist out of the White House."

Titus also praised Juli Briskman, who was elected to local government in Virginia after going viral for giving the middle finger to Trump's motorcade.

"Is that not poetic justice? She's representing the district where his golf course is located. It just doesn't get any better than that," Titus said.

Titus has not officially announced an endorsement in the Democratic primary yet, but she told the Nevada Independent last year that former vice president Joe Biden would be her first choice, adding that "the worst Democrat would be better than Trump." She is expected to announce an endorsement before Christmas.

The Nevada caucuses are the third contest in the Democratic primary, and will be held on Feb. 22 of next year. Recent polls show Biden in first place over rival Sens. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), who are in a close race for second.
