Wow. Republicans are just openly calling my colleagues “colored people” on the House Floor now.
They’re bringing amendments to the floor to stop bases named after confederate traitors from getting new names.
The GOP is not even hiding the racism anymore. pic.twitter.com/7bRMjbi00O

Disgusting yet somehow, not shocking behaviour on the House Floor *while* the room assembled to hear about amendments to stop bases named after confederate traitors from getting new names. That really says it all.
Good for Joyce Beatty for shutting that down quick. Good Lord. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
