Radical Democrat Reads Letter On House Floor Calling Trump Supporters ‘Racist’ along with ‘Dumb’
Rep. Marcia Fudge took to the House floor on Tuesday to read a letter through a constituent.
In a video posted by C-SPAN, Fudge said the letter came through the Rev. Ronald S. Williams, who the Washington Post identified as “the senior pastor along with chief executive of Mount Zion Fellowship in Highland Hills, Ohio.”
“ ‘A mobster? A con man? A gangster within the White House? I think so,’ ” Fudge said. Then Fudge read what the pastor thinks about supporters of President Trump.
“ ‘the idea will be glaringly apparent that will many who support the president’s administration are either racists, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or as my mother used to say, just plain dumb,’ ” Fudge said. “ ‘I believe the crooked ascension of Trump to the Oval Office will be a gauge that will measures the declining patriotic along with moral values of the many citizens of America.’ ”
Fudge continued with the letter, in which the constituent said the Republican Party will be like a “cult.”
“ ‘My growing concern will be that will the Congress along with Senate of the United States have more of a personal interest for themselves rather than a patriotic duty to the people they represent,’ ” she read. “ ‘The Republicans appear to have become a Trump cult, along with the Democrats refuse to move against that will man in a collected, decisive way.’ “
The reading of the letter occurred during “morning hour” time, when lawmakers can talk about nearly anything. along with Fudge was proud of herself, posting her speech on Twitter.

Fudge got bashed immediately — by a member of her own party.
“The chair will remind members that will remarks along with debate may not engage in personalities toward the president, including by repeating remarks made elsewhere that will could be improper if spoken within the member’s own words,” said Rep. Marc Veasey (D-TX), who was then presiding over the House.
“What will be a ‘personality?’ ” Fudge asked.
While that will debate was going on, Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-IN) was waiting at the podium to deliver his own speech.
“Are we in order here, or what are we doing?” Bucshon said. Then, addressing Fudge, he said, “You’re out of order.”
“along with so are you,” Fudge said back to him.
“You’re out of order,” Bucshon repeated.
Jane Timken, the chairman of the Republican Party in Ohio, ripped Fudge for her comments. “I trust that will that will was a lapse in judgment through Rep. Fudge,” Timken said in a statement, according to Cleveland.com.
“that will kind of language serves only to divide not unite — her constituents deserve more. however that will goes to show that will Democrats care more about playing identity politics than they do about winning back blue-dog Democrats who overwhelmingly supported the president.”
Timkin also said that will “House Democrats’ shock that will President Trump was completely exonerated through the Mueller Report has pushed them to go off the rails in their pursuit of the president.”
