‘You’re Out of Order’: Dem Gets Called Out for Reading Letter Attacking Trump Supporters as ‘Dumb,’ ‘Racist’

A Democratic member of Congress clashed with one of her Republican colleagues on the House floor after she read off a letter from a constituent that described people who support President Donald Trump as “racist” and “dumb.”

While on the House floor Tuesday morning, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) gave a five-minute speech in which she read off a letter from her constituent that asked why the House has not begun impeachment proceedings against the president and labeled his supporters as “dumb,” “racist,” and “ignorant.”

“Many who support the president’s administration are either racist, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or — as my mother used to say — just plain dumb,” the letter that Fudge read off said.

Watch the speech here:

After Fudge read the letter, Rep. Marc Veasey (D-Texas) — who was presiding over the House — reminded Fudge and the other members of the House that they “may not engage in personalities towards the president” even if they were quoting or “repeating” comments made elsewhere.

“Remarks and debate may not engage in personalities towards the president, including by repeating remarks made elsewhere that would be improper if spoken in the member’s own words,” Veasey said.

The reading of the letter irked one of Fudge’s Republican colleagues in the House — Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.) — who called out the Democratic congresswoman for being “out of order” following her remarks.

Veasey rapped the gavel to call the House back to order, after which Bucshon repeated that Fudge was “out of order.”

“And so are you,” the Ohio Democrat retorted as she returned to her seat.

Fudge’s floor remarks come as more Democrats — both in Congress and on the campaign trail — as well as Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) push for the impeachment of Trump.

However, House Democratic leadership has been reluctant to begin an impeachment inquiry into the president.

As IJR Red previously reported, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) walked back his previous comments that suggested the impeachment of the president by the House was imminent, claiming that he was “probably farther away” from the subject than his Democratic caucus colleagues.

Why these democrats in Congress are allowed to downplay our President. Fudge showed no respect to her colleagues and was just plain arrogant. TRUMP is not a politician and that is just one of the reasons I voted for him and will again in 2020. Congress is lacking respect for the American people. Sick and tired of them not having an agenda on how to help the people and country and wasting our tax dollars. The democrats have gone too far to the left, have become obsessed with hatred toward our President … We do not want a Socialist government,… Read more »

Somehow she seems to have been elected. Doesn’t say much for her voters. Is she so stupid not to know the rules of the House or is she just playing as another Democrat that does not care about rules.

Does Fudge realize how stupid she sounds. The dumbocrats have no justifiably reason foe impeachment. Its just talk because Trump has taken away their under the table pay offs. Now they are so set on getting rid of Trump they would rather see the Country go down, because of their acting like 8 year olds that cant get over their problem.

I don’t think much of a person who hides behind someone else’s letter to express her beliefs.

If this Congresswoman thinks that Trump supporters are “dumb” (and I assume she means stupid and not mute), perhaps what we should do is bring back literacy requirements before being allowed to vote. A quick 25 question quiz before you get in line to show your ID and get your ballot to weed out all the “dumb” voters, and then we shall see which candidates get elected in 2020.
