Liberals Keep Saying No Republicans Went to the Selma 50th March, Even Though 23 Went
Everyone is freaking out because supposedly only one Republican went to the Selma anniversary march, but that’s not really true.

So apparently only one major Republican went to Selma for the event today. Make sure you watch the speech on CNN

Not one Republican in our government today showed up today in Selma. The GOP shows its disregard for civil rights and human rights #Selma50

Sorry internet, but you got this one wrong – there were 23 Republicans there:
Still, a number of rank-and-file Republicans are attending. Sen. Tim Scott, a South Carolina Republican, is a co-sponsor of the event along with Rep. Martha Roby of Alabama. Scott is the first African-American Republican elected from the South since the end of Reconstruction.
Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), a member of the GOP leadership team in the Senate, will attend the events.
Roby’s office said Thursday 23 Republican House and Senate members are registered to attend the pilgrimage.
Roby and Scott pressed a number of their GOP colleagues to attend the event in Alabama, which is expected to draw more than 100 members of Congress.
Here’s George Dubya Bush leading the march!

And Senator Tim Scott with Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy:

Great to be in #Selma today for the 50th anniversary of the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, a turning point in our nation's history.

But hey, you liberals keep lying, it’s the only thing you’re good at.
