President Donald Trump and his supporters had been called many names like racist, misogynist and others by his opponents. Now that rhetoric has transferred in the House of Representatives, as Reps Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) and Larry Buschon (R-Ind) had a feud on Tuesday after Fudge read a constituent letter on the House floor that called the supporters of the President “racist’’ and “dumb.’’
“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,’’ said the letter that Fudge read on the House Floor as she raised some controversy due to it.
“During today’s Special Morning Hour, I shared a letter from an OH-11 constituent concerning the current administration. Watch the video to view the full floor speech,’’ wrote Fudge on her Twitter account.
After Fudge’s remarks, Representative Marc Veasey (D-Texas) said: “Remarks and debate may not engage in personalities towards the president, including by repeating remarks made elsewhere that would be improper if spoken in the member’s own words.’’
According to a C-SPAN video of the incident, Fudge then asked Veasey, “What is a personality?’’
“We in order here or what are we doing?’’ asked Buschon, to which Fudge replied that she was “talking to the speaker.’’
“No, you’re out of order,’’ Buschon responded.
According to The Hill, Veasey called the House to order, after which Buschon again said: “You are out of order’’ to which Fudge responded as she was returning to her seat: “And so are you.’’
