Today’s Sensitive Snowflake Award goes to Rep G.K. Butterfield, North Carolina Democrat and head of the Congressional Black Caucus.
When Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tweeted, “It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to,” Butterfield complained the statement was racist.
“The moment an African-American hears the word ‘shackles,’ it’s reminiscent of the era of slavery,” Democratic Congressman G.K. Butterfield said. “We’re at a point now where Donald Trump is out of control. We don’t know what’s next.”
What’s next for the politically correct sensitive snowflakes? Banning the word “ship” because slaves came to North America on them? Cotton? Auction?
Congratulations, Rep. Butterfield! You’ve earned your Snowflake!
