Republicans are concerned about President Joe Biden's recent pick for U.S. attorney after footage emerged showing her yelling at local reporters.
Project 21 co-founder Horace Cooper slammed Rachael Rollins, Biden's pick for U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, after footage showed her confronting journalists outside her home.
"How is it that we managed to pick one of the most unhinged persons that we could find for this particular position?" Cooper asked Tucker Carlson on Thursday.

The video shows a producer and photographer approaching Rollins, purportedly outside her house. Rollins asked, "As a black woman, in this moment, in this country, you're going to put my f***ing house on the screen?"
"No, no, no, ma'am. We're just here approaching you to ask you a question," the producer said.
"Get away from my family. Speak to me at my job. If I get hurt or harmed because of this, you are on the record for that, or my kids are f***ing killed. Who do you think you are? This is private property. Get out of here," Rollins said, later saying she'd call the police on the producer.

The Biden appointee then said, "So, the rantings of a white woman get you here and scare my children?" as she demanded they leave the property.
The producer and photographer then left the property, Boston 25, the outlet for which they worked, confirmed.
The pair intended to ask Rollins about an alleged road rage incident in which Katie Lawson, a white woman, claimed Rollins confronted her, telling the outlet that Rollins "pulled her car about three inches from my car and said, 'Do you want me to write you a ticket? Because I'll write you a ticket,' put on the sirens, put on the strobe lights for like, probably a couple of seconds."
Republicans previously attacked Rollins for refusing to prosecute people accused of some crimes, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell calling her "soft on crime" and urging "all senators to vote no" on Rollins.
"Rollins is part of a web of left-wing district attorneys across the country who see it as their job not to prosecute crime, rather, to protect criminals," said Sen. Ted Cruz during a speech on the Senate floor.
