The following article, Flashback: Dem Rep. Stands On House Floor, Reads Letter Calling Trump Supporters ‘Dumb’ (Watch), was first published on Flag And Cross.
Different day, same Congressional Democrats. Rep. Marcia Fudge decided to step up to the plate to bash President Trump and his supporters. She went low. From Free Beacon:
Rep. Marcia Fudge (D., Ohio) read a letter from one of her constituents Tuesday on the House floor calling many supporters of President Donald Trump “racist” and “just plain dumb.”
Fudge spoke during the House’s “Morning Hour,” where members have five minutes to discuss any topic. She chose to share sharp words from Rev. Ronald S. Williams, the senior pastor and chief executive of Mount Zion Fellowship in Highland Hills, Ohio.
Williams wrote, “It is glaringly apparent that many who support the present administration are either racist, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or as my mother used to say just plain dumb. They have chosen to support a president who has a proven record of being sexually condescending to women, will not oppose the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and other hate organizations, is indecisive, condescending to anyone who challenges him and hides behind his Twitter account rather than dealing with the real issues in our country and around the world. To put icing on this cake, he’s a proven liar.”
Even though most members of Congress are well-off financially before taking office, House Democrats are now proposing a pay increase.
House spending leaders want to break a decadelong pay freeze and give members of Congress a cost-of-living bump that could pad their salaries with an extra $4,500 next year.
Congressional salaries have been frozen at about $174,000 since 2009, when Democrats controlled Congress and decided to suspend automatic cost-of-living increases while heading into the 2010 election year.
California Democrat Maxine Waters is at it again.
As if calling Trump supporters “unpatriotic” wasn’t bad enough the first time, she decided to double down.
Here’s a perfect example of a person who just doesn’t “get it.”
I received some criticism b/c I said Repubs supporting Trump -after his crimes & work w/ Russians – are unpatriotic. Yes I said it! How can you know the enemy Russia is undermining our democracy & say & do nothing? If you don’t care, I do. We must impeach Putin’s president Trump!

The funniest part is how silly Waters sounds and she has to know it. To claim that Americans who stand for the flag and value the Constitution are “unpatriotic” is as idiotic as it gets.
