Being a lawmaker requires trying NOT to take things personally…
You might needs someone you got mad at for a vote tomorrow….
Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) hugged on the House floor Thursday, one day after clashing over allegations of racism during a fiery moment at Michael Cohen’s House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing.
Meadows and Tlaib engaged in a one-on-one conversation on the floor during votes Thursday to clear the air about Wednesday’s incident, when Tlaib criticized Meadows for bringing an African-American Trump administration official to the hearing to refute allegations the president is racist….
Blow up Twitter: Meadows and Tlaib just hugged on House floor and are engaged in a long, cordial talk.
Tlaib, who earned headlines in January for telling supporters the House was going to “impeach the motherf—er” in reference to Trump, accused Meadows on Wednesday of using the official as a prop.”She said she didn’t mean it yesterday, so there was no need to apologize,” Meadows, the leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told reporters afterward. “I wanted her to know and she wanted me to know that our relationship is one that will hopefully provide real good results going forward.”
“I certainly respect the fact that she is representing 750,000 people just like I am. And so it’s important for all 435 of us to show respect and civility to each other, regardless of our differences on policy.”
