Radical Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) accused Lynne Patton of being a racist prop for Republican Mark Meadows during the Michael Cohen hearings.
Earlier in the day Rep. Meadows introduced Trump employee Lynne Patton during his time questioning the witness. Ms. Patton years ago by the Trump family. Patton is a black woman and staunch supporter of President Trump.
Later this afternoon Rep. Tlaid used her time questioning Michael Cohen to attack Mark Meadows for bringing Lynne Patton into the room as a racist “prop.”
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI): "Just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them does not mean they aren't racist and…the fact someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself." pic.twitter.com/k0ysrj5cKm

Lynne Patton thanked Mark Meadows earlier today.
I am honored to be the special guest of @RepMarkMeadows today. I am here in support of @POTUS and in support of the truth, as Michael Cohen (knows that I know) it to be. And the truth is that it doesn’t take you 15 years to call someone a racist. Unless they’re not one. pic.twitter.com/jPxeYTbTYT
