Skip to comments.Floor fight erupts as Pelosi speaks ahead of vote to condemn Trump's 'racist' comments

Escalating tensions on Capitol Hill erupted into a contentious floor fight in the House of Representatives on Tuesday afternoon, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke in favor of a proposed resolution condemning "racist" comments by President Trump -- even as Republican leaders stood steadfast behind the president.
As Pelosi's remarks turned personal, Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins rose to challenge her and demand that her words be "taken down." The extraordinary rebuke, the first of its kind by a member of Congress and a speaker of the House in decades, theoretically could result in Pelosi being barred from speaking on the floor for the remainder of the day.
"There is no place anywhere for the president's words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous -- and have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color," Pelosi, D-Calif., said. "It's so sad because you would think that there would be a given that we would universally, in this body, just say, 'Of course. Of course.'"

“words, which are not only divisive, but dangerous”

If you act, speak and dress like you are foreign born, you might be treated like a foreigner.
Look at the American Nazi Party go, bro!
Darn, from the headline, I thought it would be like a Taiwan Parliament kind of fight.
I had to be told by NBC News that 3 of the 4 were born in the USA.
[and people of color,” Pelosi, D-Calif]
Hey, Nancy Pelosi: Is “white” a color?
Asking for a friend. Thanks!
More than a hour has gone by..they should be taken down
the president’s words, which are not only divisive, ////
The rats have been dividing the country since the Vietnam war.
May they, and their enemedia enablers, all rot in hell and be vilified as traitors in the history books.
What a disappointment! When I first glanced at the title, I thought it said Food fight erupts....
“Well, when they take caning each other, “
THE GOOD OLE DAYS. When caning another politician on the floor resulted in a Civil War months later. We’ve gone soft..
Funny, the word “gutta-percha” came to my mind this morning.
