Rep. Rashida Tlaib sparked a huge controversy at the Micheal Cohen hearings yesterday when she called Lynne Patton, who is a longtime family friend of the Trump family and currently serves in the Trump administration, a racist “prop.” Rep. Tlaib is also infamous for calling the president a “mother-f*cker” and being a noted anti-Semite. Patton was fed-up, and she just utterly destroyed the Michigan Congresswoman. You’ll love this.
Micheal Cohen, the disbarred and disgraced attorney, spent seven hours on Capitol Hill yesterday testifying in a circus-like atmosphere. The entire spectacle was a Democratic ploy hoping it would lead to the impeachment of the president. Instead, it turned out to be a huge nothing-burger when Cohen testified that he had no knowledge of Russian collusion.
It also became an unruly platform for Trump-hating Congressmen to grandstand, like Rep. Rashida Tlaib. She used her five minutes during the hearing to climb up on her bully pulpit to launch into a race-baiting diatribe against Senator Mark Meadows and his guest Lynne Patton.
Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows, responding to convicted criminal Michael Cohen’s assertions that the President is racist, introduced Lynne Patton during the hearing. “[Patton] says that as a daughter of a man born in Birmingham, Alabama, that there is no way that she would work for an individual who was racist,” Meadows told Cohen. “She disagrees with you.”
Well, that really pissed off Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who thought she could score some cheap political points and double down that President Trump is a racist.
“Just to make a note, Mr. Chairman, just because someone has a person of color, a black people working for them, does not mean they aren’t racist,” Tlaib said in her closing remarks. “And it is even insensitive, some would even say the fact that someone would even use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself.”
Tlaib took issue with the display, referring to Patton as nothing more than a prop. Well, Lynne Patton wasn’t going to let the Trump-hater get away with it, and whoa – did she ever unleash her fury.
"Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren't racist. That someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber is racist in itself."

“Today a race card was played,” she said on Instagram. “But not by Congressman Mark Meadows.”
The real race card was played “by those on the House Oversight Committee who sadly placed more credence on the word of a self-confessed convicted perjurer, than that of a highly-educated black woman who rose up the ranks of one of the most recognized global real-estate companies in the world, spoke before 25 million people at the Republican National Convention and now successfully oversees the largest HUD program office in the country.”
“That is not the resume of a prop,” she added.

Today a race card was played. But not by Congressman Mark Meadows. But rather by those on the House Oversight Committee who sadly placed more credence on the word of a self-confessed convicted perjurer, than that of a highly-educated black woman who rose up the ranks of one of the most recognized global real-estate companies in the world, spoke before 25 million people at the Republican National Convention and now successfully oversees the largest HUD program office in the country. That is not the resume of a prop. It is, however, the resume of someone who remains completely unfazed by the criticism of others and laser focused. Today was simply about one longtime employee disputing the testimony of another longtime employee who both know the President extremely well. Period. Since the release of my viral video in May 2015, those who know me can confirm that my steadfast narrative about the Trump family has not changed. The only one of us whose narrative has changed is the one facing significant jail time. Period. My presence today was to remind Michael Cohen that honesty and integrity still matter. I do not have an NDA. I do not have a book deal. What I DO have is the truth on my side. And when you have that, nothing else matters. 🇺🇸
“I was not there to represent an entire race of people. I was there to represent one man,” Patton later said in an interview with Fox & Friends. She continued by citing President Trump’s economic resume and the work he’s done to improve conditions important to the black community.
“As a black female executive at The Trump Organization, I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate-mongering groups, campaigns, and messaging,” she said.
Patton also stressed that the Trump Organization had hired “more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve worked.” In an interview with The Hill, Patton continued to slam the Democratic Party’s convicted liar and fraud Cohen and defend President Trump.
“I’ve known Michael Cohen for 10-plus years. I’ve known the president for probably the same amount of time,” the longtime Trump family friend said. “Michael Cohen knows I know the truth and the truth is, is that it doesn’t take 15 years to realize somebody is a racist unless of course, they are not.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib has no business being a sitting representative. She makes no bones about being anti-American and an anti-Semite, and she believes Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. For the Muslim Congresswoman, America is evil.
Tlaib’s true colors came through at the Cohen hearing. She’s an angry Trump-hater who tried to grandstand hoping to get kudos from her leftist cohorts, and instead, she got utterly destroyed by Lynne Patton. Americans were watching the Michigan Congresswoman accusing a good man and a good woman of being racists. In the end, she was outed as a big racist and an utter fool.
