Shalala Orders Trump to “Grow Up”


Yesterday, President Donald Trump took a trip to South Florida to host a rally as Democrats mount their support for impeachment. 

Trump’s rally welcomed 20,ooo +, while Democrats numbered around 200.

However, this week has also proven troublesome for the impeachment process as Michigan Democratic Rep. Brenda Lawrence backed down from her impeachment push, commenting that she doesn’t “see the value of kicking him out of office.”

In turn, considering that Michigan is a swing state that voted for President Trump in 2016, the question arises of whether or not the swing state will be voting red the next time around.

Today, Florida Rep. Donna Shalala (D), representing another swing state that voted red in 2016, took to twitter to respond to comments made against her by the President at the rally.

In the rally, the President brought up her name and the crowd erupted in boos.

In the 2018 midterm election, Shalala turned her district blue by defeating Maria Elvira Salazar, who is rumored to be challenging Shalala again in the 2020 election.

On twitter, Shalala shared a video of the crowd booing her and questioned the President’s title of calling the Democratic party “do-nothing Democrats.”

She added, “this year, we’ve passed over 250 bipartisan bills in the House.”

Furthermore, this includes “bills to prevent gun violence, protect our environment, safeguard our elections & lift millions of Americans out of poverty.”

Shalala concluded by asserting that “the one doing nothing is you. Grow up.”

As the investigation continues into impeaching the President, it’s likely that this won’t be the last time that the President and the freshman Rep. will be exchanging verbal jabs through the election season.
