Rep. Mike Meadows, North Carolina, District 11
Racist with "Black Friends"
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
Michael Cohen, former personal attorney of Donald Trump, presented testimony (before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform) that the current and 45th President of the United States is a racist, with particular acrimony towards those human beings of African descent.

In response to Mr. Cohen's testimony regarding the racist tendencies of President Trump, Rep. Mark Meadows presented a woman appearing to be of African descent as a prop for his rebuttal. The woman, Lynne Patton, a former Trump employee and current HUD official, never spoke a word, but stood in example of "Blackness" bestowed positive, non-racist regard by Donald Trump, and who Meadows claimed, when directly addressing Cohen, "would never work for a racist".

It seems that Mr. Meadows' use of an objectifying racist ploy in an attempt to discredit and disasociate the sitting U.S. President from his racist tendencies only served to once again highlight what racist never get --- that Black People are not merely finte objects of their perceptions, which are skewed toward the wonderment and awe of their being.

My question is, "If they don't have any integrity and tend towards cheating, lies, greed, theft, and murderous behaviors, what makes them so great? Their skin color? Their features? The press? Propaganda? What?

And to that point...

Hey @MichaelCohen212 Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she'll remain faithful when you're in prison. She's about to learn a lot...
