Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a Rhode Island Democrat apparently has much to say regarding multiple subjects such as, climate change, The Supreme Court, and racial injustice, according to The Western Journal.
“I think the people who are running the place are still working on that,” Whitehouse stated.
“I’m sorry it hasn’t happened yet.”
“It’s a long tradition in Rhode Island and there are many of them and I think we just need to work our way through the issues, thank you.”

“If Sheldon Whitehouse were a Republican, every newspaper in America would call on him to resign,” Ohio Republican state Rep. Brian Stewart stated.
“Every Republican in America would be asked to denounce him & his racist affiliation, & every woke corporate PAC would announce they’re terminating all donations to him & his allies.”

Today, we remember George Floyd. His tragic death one year ago sparked a global movement against racial injustice. We are working in Judiciary to bring lasting change. #BlackLivesMatter

From The Western Journal:
It might be a nice change to hear a Democrat upholding the value of “tradition” – for a party that’s championed rioters tearing down statues of the giants of American history, respect for tradition is in pretty short supply.
(Columbus Day is a long tradition for instance, yet many Democrats don’t think much of it these days. The traditional “Merry Christmas” and Nativity scenes can cause liberal apoplexy. And marriage between one man and one woman — a granddaddy among traditions in Western civilization, is all but passe among the enlightened left.)
But the context only highlights how hypocritical Democrats like Whitehouse really are.
According to GoLocalProv, Whitehouse transferred his shares in the club to his wife, Sandra Thornton Whitehouse, years ago. She is now one of its largest shareholders, according to the outlet, which generally would mean that she – and by extension, he – is one of those “people who are running the place.”
But somehow this club hasn’t managed to find a non-white member yet.
The social media responses were scathing — and for Whitehouse, humiliating.
