RNC Visitor Booted For Throwing Nuts At Black Camerawoman, Saying "This Is How We Feed Animals"
That argument's going to be a little tougher this morning, as CNN confirms an RNC attendee was kicked out last night for abusing a black camerawoman, apparently by throwing nuts at her and yelling, "This is how we feed animals."
The news first broke via Current TV reporter David Shuster's Twitter feed:
Look, loonies infiltrate both parties and it's not as if the Republicans can erect a blatant racist detection system at the Forum's doorway (though if they could, Steve King may have to stay back in Iowa.)
The problem for the GOP is that these kind of stories reinforce the same narrative that Matthews hammered Priebus over on Monday: That by letting your presidential nominee make birther jokes and by pushing early voting and voter ID laws aimed explicitly at depressing the black turnout, the party is cow-towing to voters exactly like the creep booted from the convention last night.
