Self-described “pro-Trump” Republican Florida Congressman Byron Donalds appeared this morning on CNN’s “New Day,” where he explained what he could bring to the Congressional Black Caucus — if the CBC would actually welcome him:
Rep. @ByronDonalds says he is being denied entry into the Congressional Black Caucus because he is a Republican.
“My support of President Trump has been consistent, but at the same time, I have had the ability to advocate for [the] Black community in my state,” he said. pic.twitter.com/A6BNFAf05n

ICYMI: This morning, I joined @CNN to discuss the importance of diverse thought and political ideology in the Congressional Black Caucus. As a young Black man born into the inner city, my perspective and conservative ideals should be welcomed to the CBC, not ignored. Watch below. https://t.co/dlc9xSXBWT

Well, for what it’s worth, “New Day” co-anchor Brianna Keilar apparently disagrees with Byron Donalds about his perspective being ignored. She seems to think it should be ignored, because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about and his defense of Donald Trump “might be incongruent with the mission of the CBC”:
Keilar: Your ideas are “incongruous” with their “mission”

To his credit, Rep. Donalds maintains his composure when pushing back against Keilar’s condescension.

Keilar’s is just incredible with her condescension, conflation, and “whitesplaining His response is perfection!

Had we been in his position, we may not have been so generous.
What is their “mission” anyway? Isn’t their mission to represent (fully) the US black community in the US Congress? How come he cannot be part of that?

Because Byron Donalds doesn’t think the way Brianna Keilar thinks he should.

Quite the optics for Brianna Keilar here. https://t.co/1orwffWW5P

WOW — this pushback from @ByronDonalds is must-watch stuff.
The optics here are incredible — Keilar lecturing Donalds on his views on race, with ad hominem “what about your Trump support” and misinformation about state voting laws to argue he isn’t black enough for the CBC. https://t.co/bubzWBIVCR

A famous Democrat might have told him “You ain’t black!”

That’s basically what she did there.
“Let me help you know how to be more black.”

Why doesn’t she just come out and call him an “Uncle Tom”? It’s implied in every word https://t.co/TfQ1lKUMfp

Crazy how black men don’t get the grace to think for themselves in this society. https://t.co/wacEJ1ewnf

This interaction shows the idiocy of the racially-obsessed Left.
Skin color is all that matters, they will say, until your ideas don’t match. Then skin color becomes identifiable only by the “right” ideas.
