‘Pathetic’ GOP lawmaker torn to shreds for saying he’s ‘struggling’ with racist Trump rally chants

Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) on Thursday admitted that he “struggled” as he watched racist chants break out at President Donald Trump’s rally — though he still refused to denounce racism.

Writing on Twitter, Walker said that he “struggled with the ‘send her back’ chant tonight referencing Rep. Omar.”

After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.
