Tx Congressman Chip Roy (R): I'm not a racist......but....

Texas Congressman Chip Roy (R) in attempt to condemn the president's racist tweet towards 4 Congressional women of color, stepped into the "I'm not a racist....but..." trap that many racists fall into. It truly shows Roy's colors.

Chippy was doing just great until he got to the "but". It's not hard to call out a racist. He could have just said "POTUS was wrong to say any American citizen, whether in Congress or not has any 'home' besides the U.S. This is a racist statement and he should immediately apologize." 

Instead he pivots into an unrelated, also racist, issue. BTW Someone pointed out that Roy didn't direct this tweet toward @POTUS for fear he might read it.

Racists are cowards too.
