There’s dumb accusations of racism.  There’s irresponsible accusations of racism.  Then there’s accusing you political opponents 18-MONTH-OLD SON of being racist.


While debating the controversial “Religious Freedom Bill” recently signed into law by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Rep. Vanessa Summers said the toddler, who is the son of her colleague Republican Judson McMillin was afraid of her because she’s black.

“He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried,” she said. “And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.”

Now anyone who’s ever met a baby knows they sometimes cry when they meet strangers, or Santa Claus, or the Easter Bunny or because, you know, they’re babies and they just cry sometimes.

But not in the mind of Summers.

Listen for yourself[2].  You can hear her colleagues collectively groan.
