Former Republican Rep. Mia Love followed others in her party blaming Democratic officials of color for President Donald Trump’s racist comments.
During a CNN interview with Fredricka Whitfield, Love said that it was incumbent on the women of color to “take the high road.”
“I think the American people, including me, we’re getting so tired of the back and forth,” Love said of Trump’s call for the women to go back where they came from. “I just want to say we have to remember what their jobs are.”
She went on to tell the four women to do their jobs instead of focusing on Twitter battles. It’s ironic given the number of times the president tweets on a day-to-day basis.
“Who started this?” asked Whitfield.
“Look, no one is making excuses and certainly we have to continue to hold the president responsible for the things that he says and what he does,” she said. “I absolutely agree with that. But at some point, again, I’ve got three children that are watching adults behave poorly. And then we go out and we tell people, hey, these kids shouldn’t be bullying each other. They shouldn’t be doing the things that they’re doing that’s causing all sorts of suicides in schools and yet members of Congress and the president of the United States aren’t the best example.”

Texas doctor blasts Trump’s COVID-19 ‘misinformation campaign’: ‘You can’t hide hospitalizations’
A doctor in Texas has delivered a scathing rebuke of the Trump White House's attempts to ignore the surge in novel coronavirus infections throughout the United States.
Dr. Peter Hotez, the co-director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is simply lying when he says that America is "in a good place" with COVID-19.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper exposes Trump’s lies on COVID deaths: He ‘doesn’t want you to know the whole story’
On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper laid into President Donald Trump for his false narratives about the coronavirus pandemic.
"New modeling from the University of Washington today forecasts 208,000 people in this country may be dead of COVID-19 by Election Day," said Cooper. "Which the president still does not seem to think is all that bad. Because he is still repeating the same falsehoods as ever about testing and mortality, which fell for a while, but is once again sadly, sickeningly, ticking up."
"We have more cases because we're doing more testing," said Trump in the clip. "We have more cases. If we did half the testing, we'd have far fewer cases but people don't view it that way. What they have to view, though, is if you look at the chart, and maybe Mike has it, but we looked at it before, if you look at the chart of deaths, deaths are way down. What we want to do is get our schools open. We want to get them open quickly, beautifully in the fall."
Trump’s record as one of the ‘dumbest students’ in college makes cheating story credible: Trump biographer
On Tuesday, Trump biographer David Cay Johnston discussed the allegation from Mary Trump's book that the president paid for someone to take his SAT — an accusation he denies vehemently.
"He claims he was a top student, best of the best. What do you make of this, David?" asked host Erin Burnett.
"The story makes perfect sense," said Johnston. "First of all, back in the 1960s, it was easy to have someone go and take your test for you. There weren't IDs and the checks we have today because of the kind of cheating. The idea that a rich boy paid someone else to take the test, to people of my generation, is no surprise. Trump claims he was a great student, yet one of his former professor described him as the 'blank blank dumbest student he's ever had,' but thinks he knows everything. There were no honors for Trump at Fordham or Penn."
