House Speaker Nancy Pelosi instructed her caucus to come to the impeachment vote Wednesday with a somber bearing, insisting that there be no cheering for the occasion of referring charges against the president of the United States to the Senate.
But the congresswoman known for declaring only hours after being sworn into office her intent to “impeach the motherf—-” couldn’t help herself.
She posted an Instagram video of her grinning with delight as she walked toward the House floor to cast her vote.
“Hey everyone. I am on my way to the United States House floor to impeach Trump. On behalf of my incredible district. Thirteenth district strong. Let’s do this,” she said.
Someone in the background, apparently a staff member, could be heard laughing and shouting “woo!”

President Trump posted Tlaib’s video.
“This is what the Dems are dealing with. Does anyone think this is good for the USA!” he said.
Tlaib also posted a photograph of herself and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. – known for her regular calls over the past three years to “impeach 45” –smiling with the caption: “MOOD.”
The hashtag “impeached” was prominently stamped on the photo.
Pelosi, who wore black for what she called a “solemn” occasion, appeared to send a glare in the direction of Democrats who began to clap when she announced the passage of the first article of impeachment.
