Dem-led House formally condemns Trump remarks deemed ‘racist,’ after dramatic floor fight over Pelosi

The House Democrats formally condemned President Trump’s tweets about the jihad caucus as racist (they’re not), but will not dare condemn Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib for their hateful and anti-Semitic statements about pro-Israel Jewish Americans. In the intern anti-BDS legislation collects dust on Speaker Pelosi’s desk. #Jexodus.

Dem-led House formally condemns Trump remarks deemed ‘racist,’ after dramatic floor fight over Pelosi

By Gregg Re | Fox News, July 16, 2019:

The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed a resolution Tuesday evening condemning President Trump’s “racist” remarks this weekend — although the moment was largely overshadowed by a dramatic floor fight earlier in the day that ended with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ruled out of order for a breach of decorum.

The unexpected mayhem in Congress, which briefly resulted in the revocation of Pelosi’s speaking privileges on the House floor, left commentators and lawmakers stunned. “So, Democrats vote to break House rules and decorum, so that they can call Trump out on decorum. Surreal,” wrote Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel.

The final resolution, entitled “H. Res. 489 — Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress,” passed by a vote of 240-187. All Democrats voted yea, with Republicans joining them: Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick, Will Hurd, Fred Upton and Susan Brooks.

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, who recently left the Republican Party after calling for Trump’s impeachment, also voted yes. The rest of the Republicans voted no.
