Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jefferies (D-NY) began his town hall in Brooklyn by comparing Donald Trump to Jim Crow. Democrats are going after Trump full throttle and not afraid to speak the truth about this president.
Tim Murphy of Mother Jones tweeted:
Jeffries kicks off town hall w/ Trump jab: "While Jim Crow may be dead he's got nieces and nephews…running around 1600 Pennsylvania Ave."

For good measure, Rep. Jefferies gave Attorney General Jeff Sessions a bit of legal advice:
Jeffries says Sessions is "a disaster and a good ol' boy" who "should be hiring a criminal defense attorney" for perjury

Rep. Jefferies was correct. This White House is loaded to the gills with people in positions of power who have expressed racist views or have engaged in racism. Trump himself was sued by the federal government for housing discrimination for refusing to rent to African-Americans.
Trump campaigned on racism. He has filled his White House with racists, and he has behaved in a racist manner. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.
Democrats are never going to accept a racist occupying the White House. Unlike the media, Democrats are not going to normalize the unacceptable and repulsive.
