Lynne Patton, right-wing activist and event planner for Eric Trump since 2009, wedding planer.
What is missing in all this is the visual of it. Lynne Patton standing there silent and unmoving like a slave on the block. A prop to deny Trump’s racism. Also keep in mind Meadows got elected as a Birther saying “Send Obama back to Kenya or wherever he came from.” He is also second in command behind Jim Jordan for the radical right-wing Freedom Caucus.
“Just because someone has a person of color — a black person — working for them does not mean that they aren’t racist,” Tlaib said, addressing the chairman.
“My nieces and nephews are people of color, to ask someone who is a personal friend of the Trump family, who has worked for him … that she’s coming in to be a prop? It’s racist to suggest that.” Mark Meadows.
“That was not my intention, I do apologize if that’s what it sounded like, I was not referring to you as a racist.” Tlaib.
It is abundantly clear that Tlaib was calling Trump a racist not Meadows. But she apologized anyway.
First sign of a racist” “Some of my best friends are black…” [Down here where I live that is different, they say “I am not a racist! I just don’t like N******. REALLY. I actually hear that]
So who and where are these black nieces and nephews? Why no mention or pictures of them anywhere from Meadows until now. And what does he have to do with what his brothers or sisters choose in life?
And please Elijah Cummings said he was friends with Mark Meadows, he said nothing about whether he was racist or not. Hell, down here just about every friend I have outside my family is a racist. One adjusts and accepts that reality or lives alone.
