Senator Tim Scott Reads Out Nasty Tweets Hes Received for His Support of Jeff Sessions
Mediaite ^ | 2/8/17 | Josh Feldman

Tim Scott, the sole black Republican in the Senate, read aloud some nasty tweets he has received in response to his support of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General.

Some of the pushback against Sessions includes past comments he has made on racial matters and his record on civil rights, which led to Elizabeth Warren reading Coretta Scott King‘s letter against Sessions last night that resulted in her being reprimanded and made to stop talking.

But on the Senate floor today, Scott read out a series of tweets from people calling him everything from an Uncle Tom to a “house Negro,” all in reaction to his support of Sessions. The South Carolina senator added that he “left out all the ones that use the n-word.”

Scott went on to charge that Democrats engage in selective tolerance:

“The liberal left that speaks and desires for all of us to be tolerant do not want to be tolerant of anyone that disagrees with where they are coming from.”

Watch above, Via C-SPAN.

Fortunately, Sen. Scott has gotten a lot of positive response since reading out the samples of tweets on the Senate floor.
