Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) invited a former employee of the Trump organization and current Housing and Urban Development (HUD) employee Lynne Patton – a black woman – to Wednesday’s Congressional testimony by President Donald J. Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

The purpose was for Patton’s invitation was to refute Cohen’s claims that Trump is a “racist,” which Cohen made under oath, despite working for Trump for a decade.

“I asked Lynne to come today in her personal capacity to shed some light,” Meadows told Cohen. “How long have you known Ms. Patton?”

Cohen responded by saying that he was “responsible for Ms. Patton joining the Trump organization” and apparently for her employment at HUD, despite the fact that Cohen never worked for the Trump administration.

“I’m glad you acknowledge that because you made some very demeaning comments about the President that Ms. Patton doesn’t agree with,” Meadows continued. “In fact, it has to do with your claim of racism. She says that as a daughter of a man born in Birmingham, Alabama, that there is no way that she would work for an individual who was racist. How do you reconcile the two of those?”

Cohen dodged the question by saying that he was the son of a Holocaust survivor.

“But, Mr. Cohen, I guess what I’m saying is I’ve talked to the President over 300 times. I’ve not heard, one time, a racist comment out of his mouth in private. So how do you recognize it? Do you have proof of those allegations?”

Cohen, who has already been found guilty of lying to Congress and will begin a three-year federal prison sentence in May, was dumbfounded.

Today’s exercise in drudging up old news from the bogus Russian “collusion” investigation has so far been a bust for Democrats.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
