White House Rips Republicans Over Confederate Flag Fracas, Trump

Josh Earnest gave no quarter as he ripped Republicans for their cowardly ways.

So did you hear the one about the House of Representatives passing a bill to remove the Confederate flag from government property before they tried to take it back?

Yeah, that happened earlier this week. First they passed the bill, then they introduced a new bill to allow it to fly in some places and not others. Your Republican Congress at work, my friends.

Josh Earnest was having none of their racist nonsense Thursday.

“Republicans in Congress, however, seem to have values and priorities that lie elsewhere. Right now, the interior appropriations in the House is jammed up because a sizable number of House Republicans are eager to protect the status of the Confederate flag on National Park Service grounds.”

These are the same House Republicans who voted for a leader who once described himself as ‘David Duke without the baggage,’ thee are the same Congressional Republicans who have declined to criticize the race-baiting rhetoric of a leading Republican presidential candidate. That’s to say nothing of the Senate Republican who saluted that candidate. So when you hear me say that Congressional Republicans have an agenda that is out of step with the vast majority of Americans, this record, at least in part, is what I’m referring to.”
