Twitter rains hell down on birther Mark Meadows for insisting he can’t possibly be a racist

Near the end of Wednesday’s hearing of the House Oversight Committee at which President Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, testified, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) had a full-scale meltdown when Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) suggested that Meadows’ parading of a black woman who works for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was racist. Specifically, Tlaib commented:

“Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren’t racist and…the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself.”

Meadows immediately became angry, suggesting that there was no way he could be racist because he has nieces and nephews who are “people of color.”

Tlaib later said she wasn’t suggesting Meadows was a racist, but that his stunt earlier in the day had been unnecessary and unseemly.

However, it pays to recall that in the past Meadows has eagerly hopped aboard the racist “birther” train and suggested that former President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States, commenting at least twice that he wanted to send Obama “back home to Kenya or wherever.” Here he is saying exactly that:

The blatant hypocrisy on the part of Congressman Meadows was too much for many on Twitter:

There’s an old saying in the South that certainly seems to apply to Mr. Meadows: A hit dog will always holler. And Mark sure did a whole lotta hollering, didn’t he?
