    Default Trump Condemned For Racist Tweets In Extremely Rare House Vote. Republicans Join In..

    The President stepped into it this time:

    "What did the resolution say?

    The resolution "condemning President Trump's racist comments directed at Members of Congress" quoted US founding fathers and former presidents.

    Immigration "has defined every stage of American history", it said, adding that "all Americans, except for the descendants of Native people and enslaved African-Americans, are immigrants or descendants of immigrants".

    It also noted that patriotism is not defined by race or ethnicity, "but by devotion to the Constitutional ideals of equality, liberty, inclusion and democracy".

    How significant is this?

    There have been only four congressional votes to approve resolutions aimed at censuring or condemning a president, according to a 2018 report by the Congressional Research Service.

    The last occasion was against William Howard Taft in 1912, when he was accused of trying to influence a disputed Senate election."

    BBC: US House condemns Trump attacks on congresswomen as racist

    "It passed by 240 votes to 187.

    Four Republicans and the House's sole independent, former Republican lawmaker Justin Amash, joined all 235 Democrats to approve the resolution

    The four Republicans were Texas congressman Will Hurd (the party's only African American representative), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pennsylvania), Fred Upton (Michigan) and Susan Brooks (Indiana).

    Passing a resolution - which is a statement of opinion and not legally binding - criticising presidential conduct is very rare. "

    Some Republicans tried to lash out at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi for calling the tweets racist, but that was quickly quashed.

    I'm not a religious person but I do enjoy a spiritual tune. This one comes to mind today:

    It makes a YUGE spiritual difference.

    Trump's mouth has gotten him into trouble, now.

    He has been officially cut down.

    He thought he could say anything and get away with it.

    The message has now been sent to the world that the official House of Representatives from all over the USA

    DISAPPROVES Of THE PRESIDENT'S INCENDIARY MOUTH.

    And Oh, what a pleasure it is to see that made official.

    He has been publicly face-slapped.

    About TIME!

    I really enjoyed reading our congresscritter's Facebook defense of his nay vote on the resolution last night. He was soundly thrashed by almost all of the constituents who responded to his post.

    History will note that during this dark period in our national journey, at least *some* elected ppl stood up and went on the Congressional record as opposing Trump's racist hate speech.

    Wrong, Snowflake, the radical Democrat Socialists and 4 dumb Republicans sent a message. The rest of Congress did not.

    It is meaningless to Middle America and does not help American workers.

    It is basically horse mierda and the rules of the House had to be broken to produce this mierda.

    I think we should always be respectful...We'll have to agree to disagree on this one...
    Somewhat...
    He could have been more respectful, for sure, but he wasn't "racist"...the "ladies" needed to be called out for their vile, vicious disrespectful remarks...and they were...
    That's what people will remember...They were the ones publicly face slapped with the late night circus performance in the House For their Incendiary mouths They were over-the-top disrespectful...I hope they keep it up though....
    They're going to help him get reelected you know...

    PoliTalker...as you can see, many just aren't capable of respectful, adult discussion. I'll stop back later to chat some more... but leave now before your very civil thread is ruined

    The Republicans are now more consolidated than ever following this open display of hatred for America by the Four Horse Women of the Apocalypse and their support by the radical Democrat Socialists in the House.

    They are now the face of that party and will be called out for their hatred for America and their antisemitism.
