Republican Rep. Mike Kelly (Pa.) on Tuesday weighed in on criticism of President Trump's tweets targeting four minority congresswomen, saying that he is a person of color because he is white.

"You know, they talk about people of color. I'm a person of color. I'm white. I'm an Anglo Saxon. People say things all the time, but I don't get offended," Kelly told Vice News before a vote on a resolution condemning the president.

"With a name like Mike Kelly you can't be from any place else but Ireland," he said.

The term "person of color" is widely used in the U.S. to refer to anyone who is not white or of European descent.
Kelly told The Hill that the comment had been taken out of context.

"The reporter's tweet mischaracterized our conversation and my broader point: We're all created equal. It's time to stop fixating on our differences and focus on what unites us," he said, pointing toward the full remarks.

In the full five-minute interview, Kelly said that Trump must have been responding to something directly and that liberals would get angry if the president said "good morning."

He also added that he had "thicker skin" than other people and doesn't get offended by things as easily.

They do? Perhaps the president told you you're not American and you should go back to your country. Anyway, if people say things about you all the time, I never heard them. I don't even know who the hell you are.

What if your rhetoric causes people to wonder if you are an American?

You got a point there. I've heard trump's got a birth certificate that says NYC, but who knows. Plenty of birthers still won't believe one even if they see it--It's a forgery!, they'll say. And his rhetoric certainly puts into doubt that he's American.

Oh my. You're still retaining that outdated birther subroutine even after it was supposed to be purged a couple years ago. How long's it been since your last bot maintenance check? Perhaps the techs can do it remotely, but they'll likely have to pack you off to the Moscow service center.

I read somewhere that Trump was born in Scotland. Orly Taitz, Esq. is on the case.

she's a Moldavan dentist, lawyer, and real-estate agent. I wouldn't let her put topical anesthetic on a rat's gums, even if it were banana-flavored.
