“To speak like that is just deplorable,” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) publicly declared Friday in an apology to the nation for his colleague calling President Donald Trump a “motherf**ker” during a speech last week.

“We’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf–er,” Rep. Tlaib told her audience last Thursday.

Appearing on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News program, Sen. Manchin condemned Tlaib’s words and behavior – and offered an apology to “all Americans”:

“So disgusting. It was horrible, Neil. No one should approve of that, and I hope she doesn’t talk to her son that way, either.

"But, you know, what can you say? I can’t in any way condone that. That’s not how we act in West Virginia. It’s not how we talk about public leaders. We might disagree with each other, but we try to get through it, we try to find a pathway forward. To act like that is just awful and to speak like that is even more deplorable.

“I am so sorry. I want to apologize to all Americans, any sitting congressperson — there’s 535 of us there; 100 senators and 435 congresspeople. We should have better manners than that, I assure you.”
