Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib got emotional during the hearing as she called Meadow's stunt racist and also referred to Meadows use of Patton as a racist move.
"I can only imagine what's being said in private", Lawrence, who is black, said. Hostin also didn't buy the congressman's explanation that he was offended by the accusation of racism because he has relatives who are people of color.
In his opening statement, Cohen said he personally witnessed numerous occasions where Donald Trump used racist language or exhibited demeaning behavior toward people of color.
"Just to make a note, Mr. Chairman, just because someone has a person of color, a black person, working for them, does not mean they aren't racist", Tlaib, a Democrat, said.
Meadows, a Republican who had invited Patton to stand as he defended Trump against Cohen saying Trump is a racist, interrupted Tlaib to ask that her words be stricken from the record. "Tlaib politely pointed it out - and has now had to spend 24 hours reassuring her white colleague that's not a bad person".
Since the hearing, two talk-show panelists have compared the Meadows-Patton moment as reminiscent of the slave trade, describing the supposedly pro-diversity interaction as inherently racist. "I was there to represent one man - one man, by the way, who has done more for the black community than the last, probably, three presidents combined". Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., attempted to defend Trump's charges of racism, bringing up Lynne Patton, a Trump administration official, according to RawStory. "To prop up one member of our entire race of black people and say that that nullifies that is totally insulting".
Meadows took exception and asked House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., to remove her comments from the record.
During the testimony, Cohen said he had spoken to Novartis over the telephone six times and that the firm had specifically hired him so that it could have access to the Trump administration, according to live feeds published by media outlets.
Meadows responded forcefully. "There is nothing more personal to me than my relationships - my nieces and nephews are people of color", he said. And her appearance did not prove the president isn't a racist.
"All you have to do is call your friends beforehand and say, 'Does this sound like a good idea to you?'" Huntsman added.
"At that moment it was important for me to speak truth to power", she said on "New Day". "I really applauded Congresswoman Tlaib for saying that", she said. "I believe he's an American citizen and I believe, in my district, he is going to lose overwhelmingly". "It's racist to suggest I asked her to come in here for that reason".
"The president sees successes and failures", she said.
