Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on police reform blew up when Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took offense at remarks made by Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) about race, asking the Black congressman "who the hell" he thought he was.

Debating the Democratic-backed Justice in Policing Act on Wednesday afternoon, Richmond began his remarks by noting that lawmakers of different parties tend to call each other "good friends" before noting that this may not be the case when he's done.

"By the time I'm finished, you will be clear that we are not good friends," he added sharply.
