Lynne Patton, a black HUD official in the Trump administration, was slandered as a “prop” for the Republican Party during Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony on Wednesday — and now she’s fighting back.
Patton appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Thursday and revealed what President Donald Trump’s real views on race.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the president does not see color, race, creed, religion,” the HUD official said.
She continued: “What he sees is success and failure, and whether that manifests itself as a person, a place, a property, a restaurant, a TV show, a policy, a country, a community ― he makes no differentiation.”
People can have a hard time dealing with Trump’s bluntness on even sensitive issues like race, she explained.
“That’s what makes people uncomfortable is that he doesn’t care what people think and he’s going to tell it like it is,” she said.
Further, Patton argued Trump doesn’t care about the media’s “imaginary quota” for women and minorities.
“He has been empowering women and minorities for years,” she argued.

Patton went on to respond to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) for accusing her of being a "prop" and taking the word of a "self-confessed perjurer" over hers.
"Why does she take take the word of a self-confessed perjurer and criminally convicted white man over a black female who's highly-educated? ... To me, that would be my question. That’s more racist than being put up there as a quote-unquote prop.”
While Cohen did testify under oath that President Trump is "racist," he offered absolutely no evidence to support his claims.
