King, Tlaib’s hateful words reflect ‘deeper problem w/ their soul’ – Scottie Nell Hughes

Democrats took a different approach when freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) referred to President Trump as a “motherfu**er.” Both legislators have stood by their comments and refused to apologize. Scottie Nell Hughes points out that both were motivated by hate and are ignoring their responsibility to maintain a higher standard of decency.
