Representatives Val Demings (D-FL) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) got into it today, and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) entered the fray to make it a three-way melee during a House hearing over the Covid-19 Hate Crimes Act.
The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Tuesday to discuss the bill, which was proposed to address the recent increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans. As Jordan called for an amendment to the bill, he went on a tangent attacking Democrats for their rhetoric about the police as the country observes civil unrest between the Derek Chauvin murder trial and the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.
Demings was the next up to speak, and she began by decrying the “completely irrelevant” amendment Jordan was pushing.
“It’s interesting to see my colleagues on the other side of the aisle support the police when it is politically convenient to do so,” Demings said. As she continued to say law enforcement officers “deserve better” than that, Jordan moved to interject, which prompted her to exclaim “I have the floor, Mr. Jordan!”
“Did I strike a nerve!?” Demings shouted. “Law enforcement officers deserve better than to be utilized as pawns! And you and your colleagues should be ashamed of yourselves!”
