Tlaib, Meadows clash over alleged ’racist act’ at Cohen hearing

Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Mark Meadows clashed during Michael Cohen’s congressional hearing on Wednesday. This came after Meadows asked a government staffer Lynne Patton, who is black, to stand before the committee to disprove that Trump is racist. He was responding to Cohen’s statement around Trump being a racist. Tlaib lashed out at Meadows saying using Patton as a ’prop’ was racist itself.

If you're white and interact with a non-white person you're racist, if you don't you're racist too, if you're confused you're double-racist, if you say you're not racist you're extra-racist with a racist cherry on top.

All the cherry picking aside, racism is pretty much dead in America...to the disappointment of the left.

Her pointing to the black woman and saying "That's racist!" sounds kind of racist.

Being a known antisemitic, Rashida Tlaib knows a thing or two about being a racist.

Patton has a history of working for Trump and has no experience or expertise in race relations or racism issues. The only reason she was picked to say these things were because she was black. Again, there is literally zero reason to pick a person with her experience and credentials to make these statements, they had zero weight. She is simply one of many longtime Trump supporters (and employees remember this $) that just happens to be black. If you disagree with me tell me why she was chosen then? What experience, training, anything does she have that makes her any opinion on if someone is a racist more valid than any other random person? Truthfully I don't know anything about her but there is a lot of info about her and her professional life online and again, nothing to do with race relations or anything that would make her opinion have any value in a government proceeding.
