Accusations of racism swirled Wednesday during Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony, after a Democratic House freshman, Rashida Tlaib, appeared to accuse fellow lawmaker Mark Meadows of being racist.

Tlaib, D- Mich., was addressing the chamber when she turned her remarks to a Trump employee who’d been invited to the hearing by Meadows, R-N.C.

“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.”

An emotional Meadows fired back, saying Lynne Patton, a Trump aide and official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, wanted to be present in support of President Trump. He asked that Tlaib’s remarks be stricken from the record.

    I want to see that women out of our country . She is the one that is racist with that mouth of hers. She was raised as a racist and can’t think any other way. She will end up being a thorn in our side for sure. Look at the country she came from. Their’s ins noting but hatred. She will be snipping at every congressman or women -let alone the Senators I’m sure CAIR is helping her too. They are wanting to push Sharia law in our country and we can’t go there. Look at what Europe is going through —–no way are we going that way.!!!!!
