MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross, the host of “The Cross Connection,” on Saturday dedicated an entire segment on her show to a “rebuttal” to Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-SC) speech earlier this week. According to Cross, Scott is “thirsty for white approval.”
“Let’s be clear: Tim Scott does not represent any constituency other than the small number of sleepy, slow-witted sufferers of Stockholm Syndrome who get elevated to prominence for repeating a false narrative about this country that makes conservative white people feel comfortable,” Cross claimed.
According to the MSNBC host, Scott had “many contradictions” in his rebuttal speech that she “could go into great detail refuting each of his asinine points.” The reason she’s not debunking each of Scott’s claims is because “he did that for” her, she claimed.
Cross equated Scott to a slave that “Harriet Tubman left behind.”
Even though the senator has been a leading force on police reform bills and anti-lynching legislation, Cross said “there are two sides to every token.”
