White Supremacy In The Hallowed Halls Of Congress Too
Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., said Tuesday that she left the safe room with other members of Congress during the riot at the U.S. Capitol last week because of her “treasonous, white supremacist, anti masker” colleagues.
“The second I realized our ‘safe room’ from the violent white supremacist mob included treasonous, white supremacist, anti masker Members of Congress who incited the mob in the first place, I exited,” Pressley wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “Furious that more of my colleagues by the day are testing positive.”
Another progressive, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., took to Twitter early Tuesday to announce that she has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and excoriated several Republicans locked down with her during last week’s riot at the Capitol who did not wear masks.
