In a story that shows just how insincere that congressional Democrats are when it comes to their actual constituents, a handful of Congressional Black Caucus members took a trip to Africa where they were given VIP status and watched a Beyonce-Jay Z concert.
These holier than thou grifters were accompanied by master level race racketeer Al Sharpton who has become a kingmaker for Democrats like the ones who he was schmoozing with under the “official” pretense of attending a conference on global poverty.
Those attending were Rep. Hank Johnson who recently compared President Trump to murderous Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler at an NCAAP function in Atlanta;

As well as Rep. Barbara Lee who last year called for UN blue helmets to come to America to monitor the US Border Patrol and who was the only member of Congress to vote against going after al Qaeda and the Taliban in the aftermath of 9/11.
The tear-gassing of women and children at the border is an atrocity. It’s a violation of human rights. And it is a grotesque betrayal of our founding promise, as a nation built by immigrants.

Also on the junket were Reps Bobby Rush, Terri Sewell, and Gregory Meeks who recently made news by coming out against lilly white commie cadaver Bernie Sanders who by running as a Democrat, might keep a POC of color like Kamala Harris down.
Also joining the CBC members was MSNBC’s racist homophobe Joy Reid.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Democrats took $60,000 junket to attend Beyonce concert in South Africa”:
Five members of the Congressional Black Caucus took an official three-day trip to South Africa to be feted as VIPs at a Beyonce and Jay Z concert, according to congressional disclosure records.
The stated purpose of the $60,000 trip in December was to attend the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert, the stated purpose of which was to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the late Nelson Mandela and raise awareness of global poverty. The extravaganza was headlined by Beyonce, Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams, and Chris Martin.
Democratic Reps. Gregory Meeks, Barbara Lee, Bobby Rush, Terri Sewell, and Hank Johnson attended the event with VIP backstage passes. Also at the concert was Deborah Birx, U.S. Global AIDS coordinator and special representative for Global Health Diplomacy.
According to disclosure forms, the trip was paid for by the nonprofit group Global Citizen, an organization that lobbies governments to fund anti-poverty programs. The event was co-sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, Coca Cola Africa, CISCO, NedBank, Vodacom, HP, and Microsoft.
The lawmakers, all members of the Congressional Black Caucus, flew business class to Johannesburg, South Africa, for the concert and stayed in a four-star hotel from Dec. 1 to Dec. 3, according to the disclosure records.
Like the January Puerto Rican beach party that dozens of Democrats took including crooked Senator Bob Menendez, this junket was also paid for by the same lobbyists who own these charlatans.
The border is open, there’s a partial government shutdown & the Democrats take a junket to Puerto Rico. Here’s Menendez terrorizing beach-goers on the beach by going shirtless. https://t.co/QKJpHKnGLU

Were there any decency in Washington (there isn’t) then the Beyonce Five would be subjected to an ethics probe.
