Senator Tim Scott shows GOP how to respond to MSM Dem-bots about combating poverty

South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott is a major threat when it comes to exposing the Left’s BS about Republicans being “bad” for the poor (ditto now for Mia Love who will be in the House).

The GOP should take note of this unapologetic way to explain the colossal failure that is the Democrat “war on poverty”:

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., explained during an appearance on MSNBC on Thursday that it is the Republican Party and its support for things being conducted at the local level, and not the Democratic Party, that has helped people like him rise from poverty and become successful.

His remarks came after MSNBC host Thomas Roberts asked: “You say you’re concerned about kids that are growing up in the wrong zip code and, like yourself, had a tough start on the way out. But if we look at agencies that are following some of your voting records, they have concern. And the NAACP has given you an ‘F’ on their annual scorecard.”

Did you hear Thomas Roberts sneer a bit toward the end of Scott’s explanation (about the 1:59 mark)? Nothing like a rich white dude trying to convince an African-American conservative who grew up in poverty that he’s not “black enough” and doesn’t understand the plight of the poor.
