Lynne Patton, a regional administrator at the Department of Housing and Urban Development was an unknown before her appearance before the House Oversight Committee, now she is universally reviled as a useful idiot and token black friend of the racist-in-chief.
Michael Cohen, Trump`s former personal lawyer, and fixer testified before the aforementioned committee that his former boss was a racist.
Cohen`s opinion carries a lot of weight because he was a Trump insider for over a decade.
To counter that claim, Rep. Mark Meadows, the chair of the far-right Freedom Caucus, and someone who himself has been accused of being a racist, invited Patton to Capitol Hill to serve as his prop.
When Meadows mentioned her name at the hearing, Patton who was standing right behind him, stood up so everyone could see her black ass, and didn`t utter a single word. I`m sure I wasn`t the only one who was reminded of a slave at an auction block.
“She says that as a daughter of a man born in Birmingham, Ala., that there is no way that she would work for an individual who was racist,” Meadows said. “How do you reconcile the two of those?”
As if having a black acquaintance or a black employee is proof that Trump isn`t a racist. Patton should be ashamed for allowing herself to be used in such a cynical fashion, and for letting a white man speak on her behalf.
Cohen exposed the stupidity of Meadows` stunt by responding: “Ask Miss Patton how many people who are black are executives at the Trump Organization. And the answer is zero.”
Lynn Patton will go down in infamy as the biggest Uncle Tom of the Trump administration.
