Michelle Says GOP Is “All Men, All White”… Gov. Jindal Replies With 1 Word

Categories: Politics

Showing just how out-of-touch she is, former first lady Michelle Obama recently accused the Republican Party of lacking diversity — a claim that elicited an epic response from a minority GOP leader.

At the Pennsylvania Conference for Women, Obama said when she attended the State of the Union address she would notice the Republican side was “all men, all white,” according to Fox News.

Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, however, disagreed with the former first lady, using a one-word tweet to point out just how wrong she was.

“Ummmmm…,” Jindal wrote on Twitter in response to a Breitbart article reporting Obama’s comments.

Although he is a male — which apparently is reason for shame — Jindal, whose parents immigrated to the United States from India, definitely qualifies as a “person of color”  in the liberal parlance. And he’s certainly not alone in the Republican Party.

Tim Scott, the junior U.S. senator for South Carolina, is an African-American and a member of the GOP. Prior to his current role, Scott served in the House of Representatives for two years, according to his Senate website.

Another prominent Republican lawmaker, Senator Marco Rubio, is a first-generation American whose parents came to the U.S. from Cuba. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is also of Hispanic background and a member of the GOP.

But, the Republican Party isn’t just diverse when it comes to race and background, as there are plenty of female leaders within the GOP, as well.

Utah Republican and U.S. Rep. Mia Love is both African-American and female, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is an Indian-American who served as South Carolina’s first female governor, according to Biography.com

Not to mention the several females that President Donald Trump has appointed to leadership roles within his administration.

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao immigrated with her family to the U.S. from Taiwan when she was 8, according to her website. Prior to serving in Trump’s administration, Chao served as U.S. secretary of labor under former President George W. Bush.

Another prominent Republican female, Betsy DeVos, was tapped by Trump to lead the Department of Education, and Linda McMahon is currently serving as head of the nation’s Small Business Administration.

We could go on all day with Republican leaders who don’t fit Obama’s stereotype for the GOP, but the truth is that liberals like the former first lady don’t want people to know that the Republican Party represents all Americans, regardless of race or gender.

The truth is that the GOP attracts people from all walks of life because our values are American values. Limited government, religious freedom, sanctity of life and a strong military are important to Republicans not because of their skin color or sexual biology, but because those things make America great.
