Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) pointed to President Obama’s “pigmentation” as the driving force behind Republicans’ outcry over the scandals plaguing the administration. ”These people are obsessed with the president, he has taken control of their soul,” Cleaver said.
“It’s going to be very very difficult for us to erase some of the things they’ve embraced,” he added. “They simply want this to be a figment of his pigmentation.”
