Cori Bush’s tweet attacking Byron Donalds as a ‘white supremacy’ prop dubbed ‘racist’ and ‘pathetic’

“Squad” member Rep-elect Cori Bush, D-Mo., was called out as a “racist” for calling Republican Rep-elect Byron Donalds, Fla., a “prop” after GOP lawmakers nominated him to be Speaker of the House vote on Wednesday.

The latest votes for House Speaker included Donalds’ name as well as Democrat Leader Hakeem Jeffries, both being the first two Black candidates nominated for top leadership of both parties.

However, Bush denied that Donalds’ nomination was “historic,” insisting that Donalds as a Republican perpetuates “white supremacy.”

“[For what it’s worth], [Donalds] is not a historic candidate for Speaker. He is a prop,” Bush tweeted. “Despite being Black, he supports a policy agenda intent on upholding and perpetuating white supremacy. His name being in the mix is not progress—it’s pathetic.”
