I wanted to share audio from SiriusXM Urban View host Joe Madison this morning responding to President Trump’s tweets towards progressive congresswomen of color.
The clip and transcription are below. If used, please credit SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show” (weekdays from 6-10am ET on Urban View channel 126).
Joe Madison Responds to President Trump’s Racist Tweets
HOST, JOE MADSION: What is so sad is that three of these women, three of them, members of Congress were born in the United States of America. They are more citizens of this country than his wife, then the first lady. This is birtherism. That’s all it is. It’s just another form, but what we have heard this all of our adult lives.. go back to Africa. That’s all he’s saying. Well, Mr. Trump, you don’t even deserve to be called president. There is never in the history of the United States of America that a president of the United States has ever said something like this about a coal member of the United States government. Therefore, I am calling on the NAACP, an organization that I served 14 years on the Board of Directors. An organization that I spent almost 10 years as their political director. An organization that I ran the Detroit branch of the NAACP, the largest branch in the organization. You must disinvite the president of the United States to speak at your convention.
