The word "motherf*****" has somehow become synonymous with US president Donald Trump.
The most controversial example of this happened in January 2019, when US congresswoman Rashida Tlaib was filmed, just hours after she was sworn into office, telling a crowd of people:
We’re gonna go in there and we’re going to impeach the motherf*****.
But should there really have been such fury at Tlaib's comments? After all, almost 12 months on, the "motherf*****" has indeed been impeached. And as this article will prove, a brief trip through history reveals that a lot of people have called Trump an MFer.
1. Rashida Tlaib.
We will start with Tlaib, whose words really speak for themselves.
2. Samuel L Jackson.
Next up is Hollywood legend and a man who has turned the perfected the art of saying 'motherf*****,' Samuel L Jackson.
The Marvel actor recently offered his supporter to Tlaib, in an expletive-ridden Twitter post where he repeatedly called Trump the word.
3. Kim Campbell.
Tlaib isn't the only politician to brand Trump with this word. Former Canadian prime minister Kim Campbell also called the president a motherf*****.
In a since-deleted tweet originally posted on Saturday, she said in response to a Politico story about unpaid federal workers: "He really IS a motherf*****."
4. Wanda Sykes.
Another person who came out in support of Tlaib was the comedian and actress Wanda Sykes, who took a different take on the video.
Instead of called Trump a "motherf*****" she felt she should have called him a "lying motherf*****."
5. Snoop Dogg.
Rapper Snoop Dogg has also weighed into the subject of the federal employees who are working without pay because of the US government shutdown enforced by Trump.
In a video posted by the star on social media, Snoop pleaded with people not to vote for Trump again because "this punk motherf***** don't care".
6. Spike Lee.
Movie director Spike Lee isn't a big fan of Trump and in his most recent movie, BlacKkKlansman, featured footage of Trump attempting to avoid criticising far-right activists in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville.
After a screening of the movie at the 2018 Cannes film festival, Lee slammed Trump for his failure to condemn the actions of the far-right on that day.
That motherf***** was given the chance to say we are about love, not hate
And that motherf***** did not denounce the motherf***ing Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazis motherf******.
It was a defining moment, and he could have said to the world ‘not the United States,’ that we were better than that.
The rapper doesn't often make political statements but when he does, he doesn't hold back.
In an in November 2017, the 46-year-old told Sirius XM, in response to a freestyle rap about Trump that he had just released:
I was and am still extremely angry. I can’t stand that motherf*****.
I feel like he’s not paying attention to me. I was kinda waiting for him to say something, and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.
8. Robert De Niro.
Another famously outspoken critic of Trump is the legendary actor Robert De Niro, who has taken several shots at the president over the years.
At an awards ceremony in October, 2018, the iconic star said:
I just get so upset with that jerkoff in the White House [crowd starts to boo].
Boo is right! Down with this motherf*****!
Rappers seem to be the overwhelming favourite in the 'calling Trump a motherf*****' stakes.
This is what Ice-T told Playboy in November 2017:
I think we all were surprised that Trump won, because dude be lying. He’s a motherf*****. He didn’t never show his taxes. He’s the ultimate con artist. He’s the kind of rich person, when people say they don’t like rich people — that’s what they mean.
I know Richard Branson, I know Mark Cuban — billionaires that you can sit up and kick it with. But Trump is an elitist. He’s a demagogue. And yeah, it’s scary, man.
He’s got a lot of power. I come from the gang world, you know. You can’t just be talking shit and think the other gangs don’t hear you. You can’t talk the way he talks and think the rest of the world doesn’t see him as their enemy.
Once the dude told the world, ‘I’m smarter than the generals,’ I knew we were up s**t’s creek. But I predict his own supporters will turn on him in six to eight months. So let’s just cross our fingers.
10. Mac Miller.
Even before Trump was elected people were calling him a motherf*****.
This comes from the since deceased rapper Mac Miller, who posted on Twitter in December 2015.
Just please don't elect this motherf***** man.
