RACHEL CAMPOS-DUFFY (CO-HOST): It's not just touchy though, it's being used by Rep. Tlaib as a weapon and it was insulting. And I'll tell you this, lots of minorities who are conservative like myself have been accused of being a prop. What an insulting thing. What an insult to say that my color should in any way determine what my ideas are --
MELISSA FRANCIS (CO-HOST): Amen. Amen.
CAMPOS-DUFFY: Or what my political thoughts are. Shame on her, and I thought Rep. Meadows was far too nice. In fact, I wish he hadn't of been that nice. She needs to be called out on it, because in fact she is the racist. She's made anti-Semitic comments, has spoken with Louis Farrakhan. She is the pot calling the kettle black.
