Twitter mocks selfie of Mike Pence and Republican members of Congress

A selfie taken by Mike Pence was mercilessly mocked online on Thursday for its apparent lack of diversity.
The picture, tweeted by Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, showed the vice president-elect surrounded by more than 100 Republican representatives.
But social media users quickly jumped on one conspicuous detail about the picture — virtually everyone in it is white.

BREAKING NEWS 11/18/2016: Multiple Police Agencies Responded to Wicomico County Youth and Civic Center for multiple fights. The parking lot was loaded with Wicomico Sheriff's Deputies, Maryland State Police Troopers and Salisbury Police Officers. This was supposed to be a nice Country Music concert at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center and it turned out to be a disaster and a strain on Resources in Wicomico County. The Civic Center Security could not handle the drunks or the fights and that is why the multiple police agency response. Multiple subjects were arrested and left in hand cuffs. At least one unconscious, young female had to be extracted from the upper risers and had to be transported to the Emergency Room at PRMC for alcohol poisoning. Numerous underage kids were drinking beer because someone with an ID was allowed to buy 2 beers at a time, as many times as they wanted to at the multiple beer stations. The one with the ID would buy a beer for themselves and give one to their underage friends. Many underage kids were intoxicated and got in their cars and drove away from the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center drunk. Now we are waiting to see how many alcohol related MVC's occurred to the alcohol consumed at the Wicomico County Youth and Civic Center. Beer was spilt everywhere and all over people. Multiple kids were in the bathrooms vomiting. The drunks left their trash all over the place instead of using the trash cans. This was supposed to be a family oriented country concert with national act Chris Young at the Wicomico County Youth and Civic Center and it was a disaster!

The liberals are trying to change the conversation from ideologies into whites vs the rest. The GOP could do a better job recruiting and attracting non whites. Conservative people of color are out there.

Looks like a group of Americans that work 40+, pay taxes, own homes and VOTE!

I guess the more 'diverse' part of the group was out throwing a tantrum over the Trump/Pence team being duly elected.

But here's the real newsflash: nobody really gives a $&*+ what they think about it anymore.

There is only one Republican member of the House of Representatives who is Black. She may be in the photo somewhere. The rest are Democrats.
It was a celebratory party for Republicans and by Republicans. Dems were not on the invitation list.

There she is, in the middle, about five rows back.
