Florida Congressman Byron Donalds (R) is not letting liberal Congresswoman Cori Bush’s racist broadsides against him go unchecked.

On Wednesday, House Republicans hardliners nominated Donalds as an alternative pick for House speaker, resulting in the first ballot to include two black nominees to be speaker. However, instead of praising the historic moment and celebrating the progress man Bush honed in on Donalds’ policy agenda for “perpetuating white supremacy.”

The Congresswoman told HuffPost, “It seems as if they’re using him as a prop, as a tool, not because they think that he’s great, that he’s done all of these things to lead them,” Bush said. “I don’t like that they’re using him that way. I don’t want them to use him that way. And I want him to understand: They’re only using you… don’t let them do that to you. Make them treat you with dignity and respect.”

She continued: “To hear Chip Roy stand up and say this is not about color … it absolutely 100% is because if you were nominating him on his worth and merit, I think none of us would have been surprised because we would have seen him do leadership things.”

“@ByronDonalds is not a historic candidate for Speaker. He is a prop. Despite being Black, he supports a policy agenda intent on upholding and perpetuating white supremacy. His name being in the mix is not progress—it’s pathetic,” Bush tweeted in response to a Republican defector lauding Donalds.

Rep. Donalds swiftly fired back against the Congresswoman’s comments while calling out her insulting behavior.

“If you see a Black man rise, let the man rise even if you disagree with them. I’d be happy to sit down and debate our policies one on one whenever you’d like. As a black man to a black woman, I’d never do that to you. It’s a shame you did it to me,” Donalds tweeted alongside a clip of a Fox Business interview in which he addressed the rift.

 Bishop nominated Donalds on the floor during the latest round of voting, defending his ability to lead the House of Representatives.

“I’ve spent a good bit of time with Mr. Donalds, especially lately. He ain’t no prop!” Bishop said, adding, “I know Byron — he’s not a prop. He’s a man of personal conviction.”

Congress remains in a stalemate heading into its seventh round of proceedings Thursday, with McCarthy having failed to secure a majority during previous rounds of voting earlier this week. At most, he has earned 203 votes, below the 218-vote threshold, and faces opposition of about 20 members.

In a bid to win over the detractor, the California Republican reportedly offered to lower the threshold for a vote to oust a speaker, allow more members of the Freedom Caucus on the House Rules Committee, and have the Republican-aligned political action committee, the Congressional Leadership Fund, will not get involved in open Republican primaries.

  1. I am truly disheartened by my Congresswoman making that kind of comment about Byron Donalds. He is not a prop, he has personal convictions that do not always agree with democratic agenda. He does not support ‘white supremacy’. He is a very dependable and honest Black Conservative/Republican that does NOT believe that “…if you are a Republican, you are not Black…’ nor ‘…if you are Black, you can’t be a Conservative Republican…’. Knock it off Bush!

  2. I’ve seen and listened to Rep. Byron Donalds on Tv on a number of times and this man is a person of deep convictions, honest and eloquent in his speaking ability and believe me, he ‘ ain’t no racist”. Cori Bush needs to get her facts straight——-another Dem. Liberal that’s pissed because they are now in the minority. “LET. THE. GOOD TIMES ROLL”

  3. I guess if all she can see is racism, she WANTS TO miss all the colors in living. She’s stuck thinking she’s unable to live her own life because it is most important to her what everyone thinks about her, Bless her heart.

  4. The Democrats elected a Supreme Court Justice only because she was a black woman but anytime a republican conservative nominates a black person it is always because we are using them as a prop I guess all these ignorant fools keep believing everything the Democrats say I say okay let’s get vote Democrat and totally destroy America I’m old so I’m just going to sit back and laugh I hope America gets what they deserve $25 a gallon gasoline $600 a month electric bills $500 a month gas bills for their homes that’s what you will get when you keep electing these pedophile Democrats oh and by the way they will molest all your children even though I do believe that Democrats pretty much molest all their children anyways I have never met a Democrat that was not inbred with their brother and sister

  5. “It absolutely 100% is because … he’s Black”. I will suggest the only media attention Cori Bush receives is because she is a radical Black woman and not, as she accused Byron Donald, because of any great leadership efforts she has put forth.

  6. CORI BUSH IS A CERTIFIED RACISTS. SHE ATTACKS BYRON DONALS ALL THE WHILE YOU HAVE HAKEEM JEFFRIES, LOOKING FOR BECOME THE FIRST BLACK SPEACKER OF THE HOUSE – THE TOKEN BLACK FOR THE DEMOCRATES AT THE SAME PARTY. WHERE DOES SHE GET OFF WITH THESE RACISTS COMMENTS WHEN THE DEMOCRAPS ARE PUSHING HAKEEM. OJ FOR ME BUT NOT FOR THEE? CORI BUSH JUST SPOUTED OUT HER IGNORNACE!

  7. I am not a racist and have several black friends, and guess what, they all agree that this is so bad. Look back at Hakeen’s record and it’s pretty scary. This man is dangerous and they love him. Cori Bush is an idiot, and she sure didn’t get where she is because of smarts. Just like Harris, she got there because she’s a black female. It’s gone too far and we need to stop electing the blacks into offices that require you to have a brain.

  8. Cori you have a racist attitude. How you get in Congress anyway. If you FACT CHECH ITS BLACK ON BLALK DOINK ALL THE KILLING IN CHICAHO AND MY HOME DURHAM NC.
    GUESS WHAT THEY ARE RUN BY BLACL DRMOCRSTICS. GO YHETE AND DO SOMETHING. THEN GO HOME.
    IM NOT A RACIST. WD
