It seems this week has been a week where politicians have been saying really stupid things, even for politicians. Below are some of the special cases.
Rep. Madison Cawthorn
In comments at a town hall meeting, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) yesterday said that those jailed for the Jan. 6 attacks on the Capitol were “political prisoners”.
No, Mr. Cawthorn, they are in jail because the violated the law and attacked the very seat of our democratic government. If that was not the case, why did you evacuate the Capitol on Jan. 6 rather than stick around?
Because the government bureaucracy is apparently not big enough, the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) is creating a completely new office/division.
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra announced the creation of the Office of Climate Change and Health Equity…to fight all the health problems that are being created by climate change (global warming).
Although we already reported it earlier this week, it is bizarre enough to earn mention here again.
In his press conference on the Afghanistan withdrawal, President Biden said the operation was an “extraordinary success.”
There was no direct confirmation that he smelled of alcohol when speaking during that press conference.
