WATCH: Dem Rep. expresses concern over National guard protecting Biden because they are mostly white males

Appearing on CNN, Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen expressed concern over the National Guard protecting Biden during inauguration given the fact that they are predominantly male and white.

“The [National] Guard is 90 some-odd percent male; and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden” Cohen said

“There are probably not more than 25% of the people there protecting us that voted for Biden,” he added.

One Twitter user fired back:

There is nothing more destructive than a US rep suggesting the only American soldiers that can be trusted are those politically aligned with your party.

They all voluntarily signed up to serve this country, not an individual.

Another replied “Unlike Cohen, the Guard takes the oath quite seriously.”
