In a now deleted tweet, Madison told Sessions to return the child to the “Toys R Us” he “stole” it from before noting “there is no reason for that child to be in his lap in a hearing other than to send an ‘I’m not racist message.'”

Tapper clearly took issue with Madison’s “disgusting tweet.”

“The little girl is his granddaughter,” he wrote. “Delete your account and find some humanity.”

Sessions Walk is married to John Walk, who is of Asian descent.
