"dishonored her family" by calling for his impeachment. 

"What, exactly, does he know about 'honor?' " tweeted Conway, who is a frequent critic of Trump's.

The comment came just days after Tlaib, during her first day in office, gained widespread attention for issuing a profane vow to impeach the president.

“When your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re going to go in there and impeach the motherf---er,” Tlaib said at an event for progressive group MoveOn.org. 

Footage of the remarks showed her pronouncement being met with enthusiastic cheers from the crowd. 

Both Democratic and Republican lawmakers criticized the remarks, with some Democrats saying the remark was "inappropriate." 

Trump said that Tlaib's comments were "disgraceful," before adding that she "dishonored herself" and "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. I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America," Trump said. 

Tlaib stood by her remarks on Friday, tweeting that she "will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe."

While a group of lawmakers condemned the comments, others have pushed back against the idea that her words were controversial.
