AOC: Rashida Tlaib was courageous to call Mark Meadows a racist

Rep. Mark Meadows R-N.C. speaks to Michael Cohen during a House Oversight Committee hearing as Lynne Patton stands behind him

Tlaib's sneaky attempt to call Meadows a racist fell flat when Chairman Cummings stopped the hearing to get clarification on the statement and allow Meadows to defend himself against the charge.

She said she attended the hearing to support the president and stand up to Cohen, who she blasted as a "liar".

Patton also accused Cohen, former lawyer to Trump, of falsely claiming during his testimony before Congress that he never sought employment with the Trump administration.

Cohen testified that Trump had asked him to pay $130,000 in hush money-in violation of campaign finance laws-to adult film star Stormy Daniels just weeks before the 2016 election, offering as evidence a copy of a $35,000 reimbursement check Trump wrote to him in 2017-after Trump became president. Patton is a longtime Trump Organization employee who now serves as a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) staffer.

After Meadows demanded the exchange be "stricken from the record" and adamantly denied allegations of racism, videos of him using racist language against then-president Barack Obama resurfaced.

"Just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean they aren't racist", Tlaib said during the hearing. Tlaib shows no signs of taking her foot off the gas.

"She says as a daughter of a man born in Birmingham, Alabama, that there is no way that she would work for an individual who was a racist", he added.

Mark Meadows was moved to tears in his self-defense to Tlaib. But she insisted that Meadows still committed "a racist act" even though she was not referring to him as a "racist".

Chairman Elijah Cummings asked Tlaib if she would like to rephrase her comments.

"It was a very good conversation", said Meadows.

Asked if she accepts Tlaib's initial apology, Patton said, "Well, she hasn't apologized to me". "That's more racist than being put up there as a prop". He pointed to an article published previous year, "A brief history of the 'Black Friend, ' " as a helpful primer on the use of that argument. Incredible", said Moodie-Mills. "Is she the black ambassador for the entire race? The Republican president used the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.to judge black people not by "the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" to argue for a colorblind racial ideology that opposed affirmative action and anti-poverty programs, Petrella said. "It's not politically and socially legible outside of the colorblind racism framework", he said.

Still, many liberals and mainstream media members defended Tlaib's accusations of racist behavior and piled on to Meadows - including Huntsman (above left). "We're going to do it!" "The country has seen Mr. Trump court white supremacists and bigots".
