New ‘Squad’ member Cori Bush booed in House after calling Trump ‘White supremacist in chief’

Rep.
Cori
Bush,
D-Mo.,
drew
mixed
reactions
from
her
colleagues
on
Capitol
Hill
on
Wednesday after
calling

President
Trump
a
White
supremacist
as
she
spoke
during
proceedings
to
impeach
him
for
a
second
time.

Bush

who
is
considered
a
member
the
chamber’s
progressive
“Squad”

said
the
“White
supremacist
in
chief”
needed
to
be
impeached
after
inciting
an
insurrection
last
week,
comments
that
appeared
to
evoke
boos
from
some
lawmakers.

“The
117th
Congress
must
understand
that
we
have
a
mandate
to
legislate
in
defense
of
Black
lives,”
Bush
said
on
the
House
floor.
“The
first
step
in
that
process
is
to
root
out
White
supremacy
starting
with
impeaching
the
White
supremacist
in
chief,”
Bush
said.

PANIC
BUTTONS
RIPPED
OUT
OF
‘SQUAD’
MEMBER’S
OFFICE
BEFORE
CAPITOL
RIOT,
AIDE
SAYS 

Bush
defended
her
stance
on
Wednesday,
asking
in
a
Twitter
post
what
it
means
when
a
Black
woman
is
booed
for
denouncing
White
supremacy.

Bush’s
comments
come
one
week
after
Trump’s
supporters
laid
siege
on
Capitol
Hill in
an
attempt
to
prevent
the
certification
of
the
2020
presidential
election.

Trump’s
rhetoric
has
been
blamed
by
Democrats
and
some
Republicans
for
inciting
the
violent
riots,
which
resulted
in
multiple
fatalities,
including
the
death
of
a
Capitol
police
officer.
