The fireworks were flying in the Michael Cohen hearing yesterday after a freshman House member calls a member of the GOP Racist.
Rep. Mark Meadows introduced Urban Development staffer Lynne Patton during the Michael Cohen testimony as a person of color that respects and works with The President. Rep. Rashida Tlaib too offense to this and called out Meadows and called the move racist.
Talib “Just to make a note, Mr. Chairman, just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist, and it is insensitive that some would even say — the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman, in this chamber, in this Committee is alone racist in itself. Donald Trump — “
MEADOWS: "Mr. Chairman, I ask that her words be taken down."
Chairman Elijah Cummings interrupted the fight and defended Rep. Meadows.
