Occasionally I wonder onto Fox News in a desperate attempt to understand what color the sky is in the world of conservatives. Amidst the headlines of finding a sasquatch and claiming Samantha Bee was now a supporter of Ivanka Trump (neither of those are jokes), there was this gem of an article. It’s the funniest thing I’ve read in a while:
“I’m going to cast my vote regardless of the congressman’s performance,” she told Politico. “His negative comments about the Senate will not have any impact.”
“I mean, that’s an extraordinary thing to say on the floor of the United States Senate, the middle of the trial, and that’s what drew the rebuke and rightly so,” Hawley said. “I can tell you, there was an open, open gasping on the Senate floor when Nadler was saying these things. I mean, It’s really, really extraordinary.”
You just can’t make up a more farcical demonstration of pearl clutching.
