GOP lawmaker calls Trump's remarks 'racist'

Source: The Hill

Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) on Monday became the first GOP lawmaker to publicly condemn recent tweets from President Trump as “racist.”

Speaking to CNN host Christiane Amanpour, Hurd not only said Trump’s tweets were "racist" and "xenophobic," but also labeled them “inaccurate.”

“The four women he is referring to are actually citizens of the United States, three of the four were born here,” Hurd said. “It’s also a behavior thats unbecoming of the leader of the free world.”

7. Pelosi and the other TX/Mexico border reps should

start encouraging Hurd to flip. He seems like a sane R. He's be a conservaDem, but we are big tent party.

8. Yeah well hurd...

Will you support stumpy going into iran? How about cheetox trying to kill off obama care...support that? The environment...you believe the traitor, there is no problem? The fat dwarfs war on immigrants..the deplorable condition in the holding camps...that ok with you?

I read the occasional gop slam against your boss...so fucking what? Are you gonna grow a spine and start working to get rid of the abomination with the orange wig? Or is this just a little, you know...something you can point at later and say "hey, I'm not a racist.."
