A GOP lawmaker has mocked Democratic congresswomen wearing white as a sign of protest during a speech by President Donald Trump.
North Dakota House Representative Kevin Cramer complained Wednesday of the “poorly dressed” Democratic women, who wore “bad-looking white pantsuits” to show support for their failed leader as the new president was addressing a joint session of US Congress.
Cramer, who is eyeing a Senate run against Democrat Heidi Heitkamp, made the comments during a radio town hall, where he was discussing bipartisan issues that could bring the parties together, Politico reported.
“By the way, did you notice how poorly several of them were dressed as well?” Cramer (pictured below) asked, linking to move to the 2016 loss of the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
The 69-year-old got fewer Electoral College votes than her Republican contender, now-President Trump, despite gaining nearly three million more popular votes in the 2016 presidential election.
“It is a syndrome. There is no question, there is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird,” said the Republican.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a tweet that, “Tonight, our Democratic #WomenWearWhite in support of women’s rights — in spite of a @POTUS who doesn’t!”
“It’s not even a protest,” Pelosi, who wore white and purple, told MSNBC on Tuesday ahead of the president’s address. “It’s a statement of values. It associates ourselves with our suffragette mothers, the color of white, the color purple.”
