Twitter is on fire after a ridiculous video of the House and Senate Democrats kneeling and wearing kente cloth surfaced online.
The legislators kneeled for almost nine minutes in remembrance of George Floyd. Hilary Clinton, Kamala Harris, and Nancy Pelosi were some of the people who gathered at the United States Capitol in Emancipation Hall to participate in this tone-deaf gesture.
Thankfully, former Presidential candidate, Cory Booker, opted to not sport the kente cloth and Twitter took note of it.
According to Nancy Cordes, the Chief Congressional Correspondent for CBS News, “Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and House Dem Leadership, wearing masks and African Kente stoles, prepare to announce sweeping law enforcement legislation aimed at increasing accountability and reducing police brutality in the wake of the death of George Floyd.”
