Rep. Bennie Thompson made the comments over the weekend while appearing on a New Nation of Islam radio program.
Ive 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, Thompson said. That Mitch McConnell would have the audacity to tell the president of the United States not the chief executive, but the commander-in-chief that I dont care what you come up with were going to be against it. Now if thats not a racist statement I dont know what is.
