Conservative Republican Byron Donalds has been floated by many as an alternative for Speaker of the House.
This prompted some very ignorant and racist comments from Democrat Cori Bush.
Now she is taking some well deserved heat for her comments.
Red State reports:
Cori Bush Gets Roasted on the House Floor for Her Vile, Racist Attack Against Byron Donalds
The battle over who will be the Speaker of the House brought out the worst in Rep. Cori Bush, though that’s not exactly a tough task.
As RedState reported, after Rep. Byron Donalds was nominated for the position in place of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Bush lashed out, essentially accusing Donalds of being an Uncle Tom who wants to perpetuate “white supremacy.” You know, because black guys are famous for their white supremacy.
It’s just incredible what Democrats can get away with. Imagine if a Republican launched into that kind of vile, racist attack against a colleague, much less a colleague from a minority group. Don’t you think it might be major news and that it would lead to major consequences? That person would be stripped of their committees and censured in no time. But when Bush launches into a racist attack or Rep. Ilhan Omar dabbles in anti-Semitism, the leaders of the Democrat caucus just shrug. There’s zero accountability on that side of the aisle.
Here’s Cori Bush’s tweet:
FWIW, @ByronDonalds is not a historic candidate for Speaker. He is a prop. Despite being Black, he supports a policy agenda intent on upholding and perpetuating white supremacy.
His name being in the mix is not progress—it’s pathetic.

Rep. Dan Bishop came to Donalds’ defense and slammed Cori Bush:

Cori Bush is an ignorant and stupid woman. It’s amazing that she is a member of Congress.
