Democrat Reads Letter Calling Trump Supporters 'Dumb' & 'Racist' on House Floor
Rep. Marcia Fudge has been calling for Trump's impeachment since 2017
Anti-Trump Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge read a letter from one of her constituents during her five-minute speech on the House floor on Tuesday describing Trump supporters a 'dumb' and 'racist.'
The letter was written by a constituent named Rev. Ronald Williams who viciously attacked Donald Trump's backers.
Fudge, who has called for Trump's impeachment since 2017, said in the speech that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is unsure whether to move forward with impeachment because of polls and “her belief that it would further polarize the country.”
The letter Fudge read went as follows:
"'It is glaringly apparent that many who support the president’s administration are either racists, steeped in religious beliefs, ignorant, or as my mother used to say, just plain dumb,'" Fudge read.
"'I believe the crooked ascension of Trump to the Oval Office is a gauge that measures the declining patriotic and moral values of the many citizens of America.'"
"'My growing concern is that the Congress and Senate of the United States have more of personal interest for themselves rather than a patriotic duty to the people they represent,'" she continued.
"'The Republicans appear to have become a Trump cult, and the Democrats refuse to move against this man in a collected, decisive way.'"

When Fudge finished her speech, she was told that the chamber they are not allowed to "engage in personalities towards the president, including by repeating remarks made elsewhere that would be improper if spoken in the member’s own words."
"This kind of language serves only to divide not unite — her constituents deserve more. But this goes to show that Democrats care more about playing identity politics than they do about winning back Blue Dog Democrats who overwhelmingly supported the president," Ohio Republican Party Chairwoman Jane Timken said in response, according to Cleveland.com.
But Fudge argued that the country was already divided, claiming Trump’s backers have chosen to support a president with a “proven record of being sexually condescending to women," and failed to fight hate organizations like the Ku Klux Klan.
Fudges' speech also claimed Trump's rise to the Oval Office reveals “the hidden bigotry” and “judgmental attitudes” of evangelicals, and his rise means “that the United States is no longer a democracy."
