“I see the Dems have their Klan colors on tonight!!” wrote Rev. Darrell Scott, a former member of the presidential transition team.
“Tonight is not the first time a bunch of ghouls dressed in white denied the humanity of an entire class of people in order to continue perpetuating horrific violence against them,” wrote Sean Davis, co-founder of conservative website The Federalist.
