A Pennsylvania Democratic congressman was accused of referring to his constituents who voted for President Donald Trump as having supported "bigotry and misogyny" on Wednesday.
In an interview last week with the Economistabout voters who went from supporting former President Barack Obama in 2012 to supporting Trump in 2016, Rep. Matt Cartwright (D., Pa.) referenced bigotry and misogyny.
"These voters turned to Trump because they were desperate for economic change," Cartwright said in the interview. "Take away the economic anxiety, and the bigotry and misogyny go away."
Republicans have interpreted the line as saying that Trump voters were supporting bigotry and misogyny.
