Sen. Scott Reads Racist Tweets He Received Over His Support Of Sessions [VIDEO]

Sen. Tim Scott, the Senate’s lone African-American Republican, on Wednesday offered a personal and passionate defense of Sen. Jeff Sessions, President Donald Trump’s embattled choice for attorney general.

Scott, a South Carolina conservative, noted the racist messages he had received since announcing his support for Sessions. He spoke of his personal experiences in introducing the Alabama Republican to African-American pastors at a racial forum in Charleston.

Scott read messages in which he was called an “Uncle Tom” – and worse – and said that “as I read through some of the comments of my friends on the left, you will wonder if I ever had an experience as a black person in America.”

“I just wish that my friends who call themselves liberals would want tolerance for all Americans.”

Scott speaks on the floor less often than many senators, but has previously given a series of speeches on race, including one last summer recalling his numerous experiences getting pulled over by police, often simply for driving a late-model car in “the wrong neighborhood.”

He said liberals are quick to jump to conclusions about the actions and motives of others when it comes to matters of race.
