Not only is it insulting, but it’s also got to be exhausting for Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) to be constantly subjected to disgusting allegations from Democrats, “woke” left-wing activists, and liberally-biased media figures that Senate Republicans “use” him as a “token” when it comes to talking about racially sensitive issues and/or addressing legislation related to race.

Scott usually handles such derogatory claims with the dignity and grace he’s been known for throughout his time in politics, but he took a bit of a different (and far more satisfying) approach after hearing about what fellow Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) said about the police reform bill Republicans unveiled today, a bill which Scott led the way in crafting:


“Subtle” indeed.

Sen. Scott, however, wasn’t so subtle in his response. Scott casually asked Durbin about whether or not Democrats were “still wearing” the African kente cloths many of them wore last week during a photo op moment of silence for George Floyd that was widely criticized by even by other Democrats as shameless pandering to the black community:

Here’s a photo of that moment, for anyone who missed it:

Last week, Scott also took to the Twitter machine to slam social media keyboard warriors on the left who have called him a “token” throughout the process of crafting the legislation introduced earlier today:


Ouch. I’d say that settles the “racial diversity gap in the Senate” debate. Next?

Update: Scott also addressed Durbin’s remarks on the Senate floor in an emotional speech given on the 5 year anniversary of the racially-motivated Emanuel 9 mass shooting in South Carolina:
