Roland Martin: Durbin’s Back of the Bus Comments Were ‘Flat Out Wrong’

"We know why this is being held up, they are ticked at President Obama They are ticked at Holder."

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) suggested yesterday that Republicans were forcing Loretta Lynch to “sit in the back of the bus,” holding up her confirmation due to her race. Roland Martin was not a fan of these comments.

On TV One’s “News One Now,” Martin said “I’m not gonna let Dick Durbin off the hook, aiding the opposition out, because they can now focus on you and your comment versus why she’s actually being held up.”

“I think Durbin was wrong, I think Durbin was flat out wrong,” continued Martin. “The reason I say that is—we know why this is being held up, they are ticked at President Obama They are ticked at Holder, her points on immigration. I will call someone out on race. She has been confirmed twice before unanimous. And so you do that and really what you’re doing is helping the opposition now, because now they can focus on you and your comment versus why she is being held up.”
