Recently two Democratic congressmen attacked the GOP base and a Supreme Court justice with racial remarks.

Steve Israel said that the GOP base was “animated by racism,” and Bennie Thompson called Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom.”

Both Israel and Thompson declined invitations to go on “The O’Reilly Factor,” so Jesse Watters tracked both congressmen down.

Israel told Watters that the comment was out of context and happened three weeks ago before escaping in an elevator. Thompson did, however, stop to chat with Watters.
