Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was banned from speaking on the House floor for the rest of the day after calling President Trump’s tweets racist on the House floor.
The decision came after the California Democrat gave an impassioned speech about tweets by Trump she called “racist.”
The chairman at the time, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, reprimanded her for the “personality-based” attack before “abandoning the chair.”
What happened in the House today is like an Abbott and Costello routine. I still don’t see how telling someone to go back where they came from if they don’t like it here is racist. Might be patriotic and right but not racist

A majority of the House has now voted to back Pelosi. House in disarray. America in disarray. Democrats in array. Plus Justin Amash. Current score: 189-226, with 17 not voting and zero crossing the partisan aisle.
