Sen. Tim Scott on NAACP Attacks: 'Pretty Remarkable and Absolutely Ridiculous'

On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” on Tuesday, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) reacted to the justification from the NAACP for calling him a ventriloquist “dummy” for conservatives.

“Pretty remarkable and absolutely ridiculous,” Scott said. “Here’s what we should be thinking about, Megyn. Think about the fact since the last five and a half years, we’ve seen 7 million more Americans fall into poverty. Instead of looking for an agenda looking about opportunity, what we’re hearing is baseless rhetoric about the same old things that have not worked so far. So for him to attack me, it’s as if you have conservative principles, conservative idea that actually work – why bother to even try those. We’ve had a 50-year war lead by the government on poverty and it hasn’t taken those who are living in poverty out.”
