Donald Trump-Loving Republicans Celebrate MLK Day And Get Told Where To Go

Donald Trump-devoted Republicans were slammed for hypocrisy for their tributes to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the MLK Day holiday on Monday.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) Rep. Lauren Boebert (Colo.), Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Josh Hawley (Mo.), and former White House press secretaries Kayleigh McEnany (now a Fox News host) and Sarah Huckabee Sanders (now a Republican candidate for Arkansas governor) all praised the slain civil rights icon on Twitter on the annual celebration of his legacy.

But their tributes rang hollow for many people, given their defense of Trump’s racist rhetoric and GOP efforts at voter suppression.
