By The Blaze. Republicans objected after a speech from Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge (Ohio) which contained insults to President Donald Trump and his supporters. . .
The letter criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for not pushing for an impeachment vote against the president, and then turned its ire to his supporters.
“It is glaringly apparent that many who support the present administration are either racist, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or, as my mother used to say, just plain dumb,” Fudge read.
“They have chosen to support a president who has a proven record of being sexually condescending to women,” she continued, “will not oppose the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and other hate organizations, is indecisive, is condescending to anyone who challenge him, and hides behind his twitter account rather than dealing with the real issues in our country and around the world.” . . .
Fudge also read the accusation that the president is a “proven liar,” and described the Republican party as a “Trump cult.”

GOP Rep Clashes with House Dem After She Reads Letter Calling Trump Supporters ‘Racist,’ ‘Dumb’
By Fox News. . .After Fudge read the letter, which described Trump as a “gangster” and “sexually condescending to women,” presiding officer Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, reminded her that she couldn’t read other people’s remarks attacking the president.
“The chair will remind members that 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 members own words,” Veasy said.
Fudge seemed indignant and appeared to ask what Veasy meant by “personalities.” As she stayed near the front of the chamber, Rep. Larry Bucshon, R-Ind., called her out by asking, “Are we in order or what are we doing?” After Fudge responded to him, Bucschon shot back, “No, you’re out of order.” (Read more from “GOP Rep Clashes with House Dem After She Reads Letter Calling Trump Supporters ‘Racist,’ ‘Dumb'” HERE)
