Democrats Call Trump's Obscene Comments 'Racist' at MLK Dinner in Glen Burnie
Van Hollen, followed by U.S. Reps. Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes and Anthony Brown, addressed the crowd at La Fontaine Bleue in Glen Burnie. Along with the congratulations to organizers of the award dinner and the 10 people being recognized, all four took repeated aim at the president.... The comments from the congressmen were met with applause an occasional shout of, “He’s not my president.” ... Sarbanes echoed that comment when he qualified his remarks about the president, stopping and calling him the occupant of the office instead.... “I have to admit I’ve been really angry for the last 24 hours,” the Baltimore County Democrat said.... He said urged people in the room who shared his anger to take that into the fall elections.... “All across this country people need to conserve their anger, transmute it into energy and take it to the one place that can make a difference — the ballot box,” Sarbanes said.
