Washington (CNN) -- A congressman was removed from the House floor Wednesday after giving a speech about Trayvon Martin while wearing a hoodie.
Republican Gregg Harper continued to bang the gavel. "The gentleman will suspend. The member is no longer recognized," he said. "The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session."
HE CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A HAT AND A SWEATSHIRT!
FYI: Travyon Martin, a black teenager, was killed Feb. 26, in Sanford, Fla. as he was returning to a gated community. He was unarmed and wearing a hooded sweatshirt, more commonly called a hoodie. The neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, has not been charged or arrested in the shooting.
