While discussing Bill O’Reilly’s racist joke about Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on CNN Wednesday morning, Trump-supporting former Congressman Jack Kingston said that liberals were hypocritical to attack O’Reilly when they make fun of President Donald Trump’s orange skin color.
During a debate with former Obama spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki, Kingston questioned why it was okay for liberals to make jokes about Trump being orange, while conservatives are repeatedly called out when they make jokes about a black woman’s hair making her look like James Brown.
“What I don’t like is the left always runs and clutches, ‘Oh, I’m a woman, don’t say anything bad about me’ or ‘I belong to a certain race,'” he said. “It seems it is always that card that is played. It is okay to call the President of the United States ‘orange’ and ‘red head,’ and all kinds of derogatory things, and make fun of his wife right and left.”
Kingston went on to complain that conservatives are always being ridiculed on Saturday Night Live, and no one seems to get upset on their behalf.
“It always seems to me there is a double standard when somebody from the right is being criticized,” he said. “Oh, it’s funny, make fun of him. All day long on Saturday Night Live, run the clips all day long.”

BUSTED: Newly uncovered White House budget docs undercut one of Trump’s last defenses in Ukraine scandal
President Donald Trump's insistence that he only pushed Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden because he was concerned about "corruption" has been one of his primary defenses against House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.
However, the Washington Post has uncovered some White House budget documents that directly undercut the president's defense.
According to the Post, the Trump administration "has sought repeatedly to cut foreign aid programs tasked with combating corruption in Ukraine and elsewhere overseas" even though the White House has insisted that it is laser-focused on promoting good governance in the country.
Rick Perry quickly gets stumped after claiming House impeachment inquiry is breaking the law
Speaking on the Fox Business Network this Wednesday morning, outgoing Energy Secretary Rick Perry tried to dispel speculation that his coming resignation is due to his alleged involvement in the Ukraine fiasco enveloping the White House, saying that he had been planning to resign for "eight or nine months."
Perry jumped right into the subject of the impeachment inquiry targeting President Trump and the fact that his former department will not comply with a House subpoena for documents.
