Rep. Tlaib: Feels Meadow's 'Act' During Cohen Hearing 'Racist'

WATCH Trump-loving congressmen immediately tries to curtail Cohen hearing — and quickly fails Lynne Patton Is the Woman Sitting Behind Mark Meadows

Patton also brought up the president's "largest federal disaster grant" to Puerto Rico, the "most comprehensive prison reform bill in three decades", as well as his new "urban council" that "will funnel $100 billion of capital into urban and rural communities through Opportunity Zones".

Lynne Patton, a Trump administration official, said she was not a "prop" as she defended her appearance at a House hearing as the guest of a GOP congressman to refute Michael Cohen's claims that Trump was a racist.

About an hour and a half into the hearing, Meadows responded to those comments by announcing that he had invited a guest to the hearing: Lynne Patton, a close friend of the Trump family who worked on the president's campaign and now heads the Department of Housing and Urban Development's NY and New Jersey office. And there's this visual 'Exhibit A, ' American people: "'there's a black person here and we have a black person who can't tell you what she thinks, we'll tell you how she feels, and that will prove that Donald Trump is not a racist.' [It] is the most ridiculous, ludicrous thing I've seen the Republican Party do in a really long time and that's saying a lot", Nelson said.

That exchange ultimately led to Payne's pointed tweet on Thursday: "What's Racist?"

Tlaib, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, was the last to speak at the end of the marathon Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday. But I am not calling the gentleman, Mr. Meadows, a racist for doing so. "He is a cheat".

"Mr. Chairman, the rules are clear", Meadows said. "Because one person out of his entire cabinet, out of his entire staff, is there as the black person?"

Patton could be seen sitting behind Meadows while he made his statement.

"So to me", she added, "that would be my question". He cited having nieces and nephews of color and his friendship with Cummings "that's not based on color".

When it was her turn for questioning, Tlaib said, "Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren't racist. the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself".

"What I find insulting is that there is someone who is getting up there and being credible when he's going to jail for lying to Congress", Patton said.

"He once asked me if I could name a country run by a Black person that wasn't a s--hole". Patton called White House correspondent April Ryan "Miss Piggy" on Twitter, for which she later apologized. It was when Rep. Elijah Cummings of Baltimore, a black man, felt the need to call Meadows a good friend and got a Palestinian-American woman, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, to say that though she was criticizing Meadows' behavior, she wasn't claiming he was a racist. "I've not heard one time a racist comment out of his mouth in private".
