According to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — who once tried to sue a fake cow that made fun of him on Twitter — Democrats are opposed to white people because they “always” talk about racism.
During an appearance on Fox Business Sunday morning, Nunes began by railing against the fact that Democrats had supported the investigation of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the 2016 election, telling host Maria Bartiromo:
“I think the question is, does Mueller know where Mueller is?
“This was somebody who was put up as an avatar to give credibility to this investigation that was phony from the beginning. I’m not sure he knows what the hell is going on.”
Actually, when you consider that the Mueller investigation led to 199 criminal charges, 37 indictments or guilty pleas, and five prison sentences, that hardly qualifies as “phony.” The special counsel also indicated in testimony before the House that President Donald Trump probably would have been indicted were it not for a Justice Department memo suggesting that a sitting a president cannot be indicted on federal charges.
But it was what Nunes said next that will leave you scratching your head. He tried to suggest that Mueller is proof Democrats don’t really care about racism in the United States:
“Look, the Democratic Party, it’s very odd for a party that seems to be against white people and always talking about racism, they sure like to prop up these avatar old white dudes. They have one running for president right now who’s hiding in his basement.”
What does that even mean?! Joe Biden has received the most votes and is the presumptive nominee. Oh, and the man he served as vice president for eight years was black. Barack Obama was the first African-American president in American history, and he was a Democrat! Or is Devin going to try and suggest that because Obama’s VP was white that makes Obama white, too?
While it’s a given that Republicans almost never made a damn bit of sense when you ask them about race relations in the country, Devin Nunes has taken things to a whole new level of stupid.
