Biden Budget nominee criticizes tweets chanting GOP senators
Granthshala News contributor Tammy Bruce said Tuesday that complaints against senators, who would reject President Biden’s office and budget director nominee Neera Tandon, are using “identity politics”.
“Some of the complaints we’ve been hearing is that it’s because of his race and his gender, so his nomination is in trouble. It’s the most racist and sexist thing you can say because you’re arguing here That they’re not asking hard questions, they shouldn’t be pointing their finger … they just mean, “Bruce said” Granthshala and Friends. ”
Host of “Get Tammy Bruce” On fox nation It highlighted that “many people and women of color” who have “gone through the Senate confirmation process have been fine.”
Bruce said, “People should realize that this is not part of that kind of politics. It’s about identity politics.”

President Biden stands behind a pair of cabinet pix facing Nehal Tanden – including Neera Tandon, her nominee to head the Office of Management and Budget, and Javier Becerra, his secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services Pick includes – A growing number of senators have vowed to oppose his confirmation.
Tandon’s confirmation seems most at risk after several swing vote senators – including at least one Democrat – have announced plans to vote against his confirmation. The former president of the Liberal Center for American Progress was repeatedly engulfed in flames during his confirmation hearing, as Republicans pointed to hostile tweets posted against various lawmakers – many of which were removed late last year.
During that hearing, Sen. Ron Portman, R-Ohio, exemplified by “some of the thousands of negative public statements” that Tandon has made. These included Sen. Susan Collins, R-Money, “Worst” and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-A “hoax”, saying that “vampires have more heart than Ted Cruz,” and referring to then Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, R-K., Referring to the Harry Potter villain as “Moscow Mitch” and “Voldemort,”.
Portman said that even after the tweet removed by Tandon, there were still nine-page posts about Cruz that were still up.
“I wonder, in particular, how do you plan to attack you and make connections with members of Congress through your public statements?” Portman asked.
Bruce explained that the “whole point of identity politics” is the argument that some people should not answer questions and need to behave differently.
“Again, that goes into the argument, which is the sexist, racist argument that those few types of people should be handled with baby gloves when they can actually handle that area,” Bruce said. Bruce he said.
“I mean, it should be more about whether the senators were insulted or not and where these people stand and if they are able.”
