An interesting side note to the controversy over the nomination of Jeff Sessions for U.S. Attorney General.
A news host and writer for MTV is under fire for a tweet that inferred Attorney General nominee Jeff Session used his Asian American grandchildren as props during his confirmation hearing.
Sessions confirmation has been heavily opposed by civil rights activists who have openly called his actions racist. The Tweet by Ira Madison III which has since been deleted read “Sessions, sir kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys “R” Us you stole her from.
The children were seated behind Sessions during Tuesday’s hearing. Many on social media quickly jumped to Sessions defense.
