House Democrats Temporarily Changed Rules to Allow President to Be Called a Racist

Joel B. Pollak 13 Jan 2021

Democrats called President Donald Trump a racist several times during the House debate on impeachment Wednesday, taking advantage of a temporary rule change they passed earlier this week.

Newly-sworn-in Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), for example, called Trump the “white supremacist-in-chief”:

St. Louis and I rise to say that the 117th Congress has a mandate to legislate in defense of Black lives.

The first step in that process is rooting out white supremacy, starting with impeaching the white supremacist-in-chief.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) also chimed in, calling Trump the “racist-in-chief.”

Normally, such language is prohibited by House rules. But House Democrats passed a temporary rule change on Tuesday that applies to debate on H. Res. 21 and H. Res. 24. The former urged Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump (which he declined to do); the latter is the article of impeachment against President Trump.

Well, that's a definitive statement as she looks in the mirror.

It was my understanding that under the Constitution each House change their procedural rules -- that's hardly a procedural rule.

As much as I don't like Pelosi I fear the day that she steps down; members of the Squad will take over.  Guarantee it.

I BELIEVE in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a REPUBLIC; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states, a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of FREEDOM, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it IS my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
