House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Friday defended a remark from her Democratic colleague calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, NBC News reports.

"I do think that we want to be unified and bring people together. Impeachment is a very divisive approach to take and we shouldn’t take it ... without the facts," Pelosi said during a town hall at her alma mater Trinity University in Washington, D.C., hosted by MSNBC.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., said in a video released Friday that Democrats will "impeach the mother******,” in reference to Trump.

"I probably have a generational reaction to it," Pelosi said of the remark. "I'm not in the censorship business. I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language, but I wouldn't establish language standards for my colleagues."

She added that Tlaib’s comment was “nothing worse than the president has said,” and that this "consolidates his base, but I don’t think they need much consolidation."

"Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it," Pelosi said.
