Latina House Rep Says Obama Endorsed Opponent Because Of Skin Color

A Mexican playing the race card against a black person? Wow. Now I’ve seen it all. But when Dr. King was marching for colored people, Latinos sure did align themselves with the blacks.

When blacks were the only ones speaking and fighting for minorities, they stood with blacks. When Trump attacks illegal immigrants, we stood with them. But now that their numbers are increasing they’re too quick to throw us under the bus. President included. No respect. 

I’ll be voting for the wall.

From The Hill:

Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.), who is in a heated Democrat-on-Democrat battle for a California Senate seat, suggested President Obama backed her opponent because they’re both black.

Obama endorsed Kamala Harris, California’s attorney general, over Sanchez earlier this week in the race to replace retiring Sen. Barbara Boxer(D-Calif.). Obama praised Harris, a longtime political ally of his, as a “lifelong courtroom prosecutor” who “fights for us.”

But Sanchez on Friday said race may have had something to do with the endorsement.

“I think they have, what he said they have, is a friendship of many years. She is African American, as is he,” Sanchez said in an interview on Univision 19 in Sacramento.

When initially responding to the endorsement, Sanchez accused Obama of being part of the nation’s “entrenched political establishment.”

Harris’ campaign called the comments “disappointing.”

It also looks like Sanchez is going after Obama on immigration now that it’s election time:

Imagine if this woman was a Republican and said this. Racist racist racist. But no she’s a Democrat, so it’s fine.

Democrats — the politics of race.
