(The Contributor) -- Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) said that Trump’s racist attack on four Democratic congresswomen was not racist, then took the defense to another level by declaring himself a “person of color” in an interview with Vice News Wednesday. Kelly is white.
“What people are saying is that it’s racist because it’s like telling a black person to go back to Africa,” the reporter said to Kelly.
“I think we’re going way beyond the pale right now,” Kelly replied. “They talk about people of color, I’m a person of color. … I’m white. I’m a white. I’m an Anglo-Saxon. People say things all the time, and I don’t get offended.”

The reporter then asked Kelly, “Has anyone ever told you to go back to your country?”
