The U.S. House of Representatives erupted during deliberation over a vote to condemn President Donald Trump for a tweet that Democrats called racist.

Republicans accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of violating the legislative rules when she criticized the tweets and statements from the president as “disgraceful and disgusting.”

When challenged about her comments, Pelosi said that she had cleared her comments through the House parliamentarian and walked away. Republicans demanded that her comments be taken down.

“We don’t ever ever wanna pass up, it seems, an opportunity to escalate, and that’s what this is,” responded Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), who was presiding over the chamber.

“I dare anybody to look at any of the footage to see if there was any unfairness. But unfairness is not enough, because we want to just fight!” he added.

WATCH:

“I abandon the chair!” Cleaver said dramatically as he banged the gavel and walked away angrily.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) tweeted that Pelosi was in violation of the rules, and then decried the Democrats for ignoring the rules.

“Speaker Pelosi just broke the rules of the House, and is no longer permitted to speak on the floor of the House for the rest of the day,” he tweeted.

“The facts are clear: the House rules of order and decency were broken by the very person tasked with upholding them—the Speaker of the House,” added McCarthy. “But just now, Democrats voted to ignore the rules and give special treatment to one of their own.”

The vote to condemn the president’s comments continued and passed 240-187 along mostly partisan lines.

The measure will almost certainly fail in the Republican-controlled Senate.

    I’m sick and tired of these Democrat asswipes. That entire party should be designated as an enemy of the state, and removed from our government permenately. They are an obstacle to good government and must be shutdown.

    Does this really surprise anyone that Pelosi once again broke the rules and will got away with it? We have laws of this land but there’s no law for Democrats and the laws only apply to the rest of us. This behavior of theirs will continue until there’s repercussions for bad actions. The deep government is so imbedded with their tentacles in every single part of government that this may never be achieved. We need to wake up the country we love so much is being invaded from within. Take an active part by voting, getting involved in local government, right, call your congressman and Senators both on the state and federal level. Let them know how you feel. It is up to us, the citizens of this country, to work together for a better country.

    I would like to rip that rag off of Omar’s head and stuff it in Pelosi’s mouth. Will this poor excuse for a human ever shut her ugly hole?

    THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD TAKE PELOSI’S SPEECH AND CHANGE TRUMP’S NAME FOR THE COMMENTS OF THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE.
    THEY HAVE SAID WORSE THAT PROMPED TRUMP TO DEFEND HIMSELF AND OUR COUNTRY FROM THEM.

      All Trump said was….”go back where you came from…” meaning (clearly) their crime-infested, urban distri ts that are overrun with homeless and gangs, etc. Nothing he said had anything to do with race. Dems are experts at twisting words to mean what they think. Stupidity can be applied to anyone who buys into.this crap.

    They are allowing a few to rule the whole. Unless we decide to divide the country between the right and the left. I do not for see any end. We were wondering what would destroy this country and I think we are looking at it.

    Another big ado about nothing! Spending all that time putting on a big show to condemn the President and STILL have done nothing for the American people. Think if they put half as much effort into fixing our immigration policies we wouldn’t be in the position we’re in now. Quit bitching about the President and DO something for the people of this country!

    AMERICA,love it or leave it! That was the president’s message.

    There was nothing racist about the message. When a “diverse” person takes every opportunity to belittle the president, his supporters, our country and exposes (his/her) disdain for all they have; and they are called out for it, the first thing they respond with is “racism”.

    It’s like someone goes up and punches another in the nose(rhetorically) and the person responds by punching back and then it becomes “he hit me because he’s racist”, no, he hit you because you hit him and every patriot in this country.

    Your feigning disgust is a joke! Where was this same kind of condemnation when Trump was called a mother-f–ker?
