The Background: In an interview with New Nation of Islam, Congressman Bennie Thompson called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a racist for opposing the President.
Iíve been in Washington. I saw three presidents now. I never saw George Bush treated like this. I never saw Bill Clinton treated like this with such disrespect. Mitch McConnell would have the audacity to tell the President of the United States, not just the chief executive, but the Commander in Chief, that ĎI donít care what you come up with, weíre going to be against it.í Now if thatís not a racist statement, uh I donít know what is.
