Rick Scott Dodges On Telling GOP To Condemn White Supremacy, Blames Racism On US Government Forms

Florida Politics reports:

U.S. Sen. Rick Scott returned to network television Sunday with an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” where he illustrated the difficulty Republicans have with Donald Trump‘s election narrative. Asked about the penchant for “relitigating” the 2020 presidential election by host Margaret Brennan, Scott acknowledged that it’s a live issue for many Republicans.

Brennan asked Scott directly about whether Joe Biden is the “duly elected President,” and drawing a deep breath of hesitation, Scott nodded and said, “absolutely.” Scott, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, was among the Republicans who challenged the election results in Pennsylvania, a state carried by Biden in 2020.

Crooks & Liars reports:

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) suggested that “racial politics” and government forms could be to blame for white supremacy in the United States.

CBS host Margaret Brennan told Scott during a Sunday interview that a recent poll shows that only 23% of Republicans think it’s “very important” to condemn white nationalism.

“In the plan I put out at rescueamerica.com, I said we ought to stop asking people on government forms for their skin color,” he opined. “We ought to judge people by their character, not their skin color. So we’ve got to figure out how to bring people together.”
