The Democrat-controlled U-S House voted 240-to-187 Tuesday night to condemn President Trump’s weekend tweets directed at Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and three other congresswomen of color. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew Republican objections when she called comments from the White House disgraceful, disgusting and racist:

“Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets….   I urge a unanimous vote and yield back the balance of my time.”

Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia: “I was just gonna give the GentleSpeaker of the House– if she would like to rephrase that comment.”

Pelosi: “I have cleared my remarks with the parliamentarian before I read them.”

Collins: “And I ask that her words be taken down.   I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and…be taken down.”

Before the vote, the president accused Omar and her colleagues of “spewing some of the most vile, hateful and disgusting things ever said by a politician” and adding, “If you hate our country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!”
