Did you know that nearly 3,000 people died as a result of the 2016 election season? Shameless Dem Sen. Angus King drew that comparison on Tuesday during comments that amazingly didn’t culminate in a bolt of lightning from on high striking him down for the nauseating level of sheer gall:
Sen. Angus King on Tuesday compared Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.
Maine state Sen. Eric Brakey, the Republican nominee seeking Mr. King’s seat, posted an edited video Tuesday of the independent giving a speech commemorating Sept. 11 at a Lewiston fire station.
“They used airplanes into towers,” Mr. King said of the 9/11 hijackers. “Now people can use the click of a computer key in St. Petersburg, Russia, to attack.
“It’s an attack that continues and it’s the same kind of attack today that occurred in 2001,” he added.
As Alec Baldwin’s character Blake said in Glengarry Glen Ross, “Never. Stop. Closing!”
Douchebag of the week.
