South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott cracked a joke about being a black senator during his speech at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner Wednesday.
Scott spoke to fellow lawmakers and reporters at the dinner as one of the main speakers at the event. Much of his speech centered around him being the only black Republican senator.
“A black Republican is like a unicorn … people don’t believe we actually exist,” Scott quipped.
Scott also joked about his own experiences with officers, a topic he has spoken about before.
