A Virginian in the House of Representatives apparently gave the first lady an earful before last week's impeachment inquiry vote.
Longtime Clinton supporter Jim Moran voted for the impeachment inquiry, despite a phone call from Hillary Rodham-Clinton.
During the conversation, sources say the Alexandria democrat called the president a philanderer and worse.
He added if he were Mrs. Clinton's brother, he would have taken Clinton out behind the house and broken his nose.
Moran then suggested the president should consider resigning and not to testify before the House impeachment hearings.
