“Remarks and debate may not engage in personalities towards the president, including by repeating remarks made elsewhere that would be improper if spoken in the member’s own words,” said Rep. Marc Veasey (D-Texas) after Fudge’s remarks.

Fudge then asked Veasey “What is a personality?” according to a C-SPAN video of the incident.


“Are we in order here or what are we doing?” Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.) chimed in.

Fudge noted that she was “talking to the speaker.”

“No, you’re out of order,” the Indiana congressman responded.

Veasey called the House to order, after which Bucshon again said, “You’re out of order.”


“And so are you,” Fudge said as she returned to her seat.

Mic drop.

And thus Fudge’s work here is done.
