Sen. Tim Scott puts Twitter user who calls him a 'house n***a' in her place with just one word

South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the Senate, expertly shot down a Twitter troll who on Wednesday referred to him as a "house n***a."

The social media user, identified only as "Simone," used the derogatory term to refer to Scott and William Smith, a former aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), after the two black men testified in support of the Alabama lawmaker's appointment as attorney general Wednesday.

Rather than get into a back-and-forth debate with the disagreeable Twitter troll, who has since deleted her account, Scott decided to correct Simone's inflammatory message by informing her that he actually works in the Senate — not the House of Representatives.

When one person came to Scott's defense, calling the social media user's tweet "disgusting," the South Carolina lawmaker shared his personal motto when he's faced with impolite adversaries.
