Following Donald Trump’s speech on Tuesday night, Democrats issued a response through retired Ex-Gov Steve Beshear.
Here’s how it went…
It might not surprise you to hear that one House Dem. is calling the decision to have Beshear give this response a mistake.
From Fox News:
Democratic officials made “a mistake” by picking a 72-year-old ex-governor from a state that voted for President Trump to deliver the party’s response to Trump’s congressional speech, a prominent House Democrat said Wednesday.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, who has represented Missouri in Congress since 2005 and previously chaired the Congressional Black Caucus, told MSNBC a day after Trump’s Tuesday night speech that Democrats picked the wrong man in ex-Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to represent their party.
“I don’t mind saying when we make mistakes. And that was a mistake,” Cleaver said.
Beshear delivered a widely mocked speech during which he accidentally claimed to be a Republican at one cringe-inducing point. The response also featured a peculiar backdrop of people sitting behind him, near motionless, in a dimly lit diner.
