As Twitchy told you, Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib used Michael Cohen’s congressional hearing to absolutely lose it at GOP Rep. Mark Meadows for daring to welcome black Republican and Trump administration official Lynne Patton to today’s proceedings. According to Tlaib, Meadows inviting Patton was “in itself a racist act.”
Naturally, media firefighters are practically peeing themselves with excitement over Tlaib’s unhinged performance. But there’s something extra-gross about an entire network of alleged journalists swooning for Tlaib.
This … is CNN:

That Dems play identity politics? We knew that already. They stay in power off the fear mongering they accuse conservatives of. They stoke fear in every minority that the evil conservatives led by Orange Man are out to get every minority. It’s a sham.

It doesn't say anything about America. It does say a lot about the people involved. It shows how Cummings and Meadows can treat each other like human beings, despite their differences. It also shows how Tlaib smears and dehumanizes people she disagrees with. https://t.co/Shs2Tv3iyB

It’s working. The audience loves it as much as CNN does:
We do know Meadows’ record…and he is a racist. His stunt today backfired on him…bigly.
