Jeffrey Lord, CNN, the non-blonde, non-girl, go-to Trump supporter that people keep saying is a really nice guy, said Trump is the MLK of healthcare.
That’s just like Spicer’s brain meltdown – if you are going to compare things to Hitler (bad) or MLK (good) you should just stop and not say it.
But that apparently became the topic of conversation all day on CNN, what Lord shouldn’t have said at all. That’s like somebody farting on air and that becoming the hot take of the day.
A NC Republican politician/idiot (or “polidiot”) compared Lincoln to Hitler. Yeah, after Spicer’s thing. (That lesson is a hard one apparently.) But even so there are more apt comparisons to Hitler and there are less apt comparisons. And there is rhetoric that tells you all about the speaker by HOW FUCKING CRAZY IT IS.
It was a commenter’s crack that he should “get over it” that set off Pittman, who is a Republican, a preacher — and apparently still smarting over the South’s loss in the Civil War more than a century-and-a-half ago.
“And if Hitler had won, should the world just get over it? Lincoln was the same sort (of) tyrant, and personally responsible for the deaths of over 800,000 Americans in a war that was unnecessary and unconstitutional,” Pittman wrote.
Once again illustrating the conflict that the dominant party in the South does not accept it’s greatest leader because racism. Once a year, everywhere, Republicans hold Lincoln Dinners to raise money for their party. But in the South they toast Jefferson Davis.
GOP Congressman Markwayne Mullin (which is not a Congressman name, it’s a serial killer name, right?) absolutely hates it when people say that their taxes pay his salary. Oh no says he. “Bullcrap!”
“You said you pay for me to do this,” he said in one recorded exchange, posted online Monday. “Bull crap, I paid for myself. I paid enough taxes before I ever got here and continue to through my company to pay my own salary. This is a service. No one here pays me to do it. I do it as an honor and a service.”
He’s a successful businessman who has paid way too many taxes in his estimation, which is probably his superhero origin story. He estimates that he’s paid so much he’s covered his own $174,000 a year for each year in the Congress.
He then cancelled a townhall saying he has bodies to carve up. “They don’t get carved and get buried in shallow graves themselves! I do it! And anybody who says elsewise is bullcrap!”
Here’s hoping today is a somewhat less stupid day.
