A leaked recording alleged to be Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) cussing out a staffer has caused a stir and the ladies on “The View” discussed the longtime congresswoman’s foul-mouthed bullying of her subordinate.
In the minute-and-a-half audio clip that was posted by a conservative website over the weekend, the 73-year-old lawmaker’s profanity-laced tirade seemed to confirm whispers that she’s one of the most difficult members of Congress to work for and the co-hosts discussed the verbal abuse on Monday’s edition of the popular ABC daytime gabfest.
The congresswoman, who is running to be the mayor of Houston, referred to staffers in extremely derogatory terms including “f**k ups” and “f**king idiots” in her diatribe with the course language not bothering hot-tempered co-host Ana Navarro who informed her tablemates and the studio audience that she is fluent in dropping f-bombs of her own in multiple languages but Jackson Lee crossed the line.
“I think there’s a difference between cussing and cussing somebody out, denigrating them. This was verbal abuse. It’s so bad that we can’t even play a little bit of it,” she said.

“It’s emotional abuse, it’s toxic, and frankly if she was anything other than a congresswoman she’d probably be taken to HR and fired, but since there’s no Speaker, who is going to censure her? Who is going to take her to the ethics committee?” Navarro added.
Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, the show’s conservative punching bag, pointed out that Jackson has cultivated quite a reputation for being a tyrant.
“It was an open secret… She in 2018, ranked the worst for having the highest turnover rate, 11 different chiefs of staff in 11 years… The arrogance – well, A, it’s just wrong and mean, but also the arrogance of doing it for so many years and just thinking you can get away with it and you won’t get caught. In any other business in America, corporate America, you could not talk to somebody like that and keep your job,” she said.
Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, suggesting that thin-skinned staffers should consider finding another job.
“Listen, being cussed out is sometimes part of how some of us grew up. When adult folks go off, especially women, when they go off because they’re not going to hit you, they’re going to cuss you out. So, you know, I think if you are in an environment that is toxic for you, that you should leave it,” she said.
While it is still only alleged to be Jackson Lee’s voice on the recording, it doesn’t portray her in a very positive manner.

“Okay. So when I called Jerome, he only sitting up there like a fat *ss stupid idiot talking about, uh, what the f**k? He doesn’t know. Okay? Both of y’all are f**k ups [inaudible]. It’s the worst sh*t that I could have ever had put together,” the alleged congresswoman said in the recording.“Two godd**n big *ss children f**king idiots serve no goddamn purpose. Ain’t managing nobody. Nobody’s respecting them. Nobody gives a sh*t about what you’re doing and you ain’t doing sh*t. And this is an example of it. I gave it to Jerome. This is not child’s work.”
