Madison mayor hilariously mocks ‘moron’ GOP congressman who called the city ‘communist’

Published

on

After Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy called Madison, Wisconsin a “communist” community during a Fox News appearance with Tucker Carlson, a political science professor at UW-Stevens Point called his comments “simply irresponsible,” Wisconsin Public Radio reports.

“I mean, Duffy, besides being a member of Congress, is also part of the transition team,” Professor Ed Miller said. “So, you just don’t say that.”

During his appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Duffy discussed the state’s presidential recount efforts. “We only have one county that’s hand counting the votes,” he said, noting that the county was Dane County, home of Madison.

He called the Madison-area a “progressive liberal Communist community,” and added, “they’re taking as long as they can [with the recount].”

Duffy then suggested that Democrats “don’t believe in Democracy and freedom and free elections. They want to use politics to undermine the will of the voter,” noting that Wisconsin went red for the first time since 1984.

Madison’s Mayor Paul Soglin also responded to Duffy’s comments, and not in the kindest terms. “For years I’ve been listening to morons like Representative Duffy, who are resentful of the fact that Madison is Wisconsin’s economic engine,” he said.

The mayor apologized for using the term “moron” to define the Wisconsin representative in a statement released by his office on Thursday. Instead, he said, “I should have said he is a liar and a charlatan.”

Duffy responded to his critics in a tweet that he posted on Wednesday. He wrote, “The PC crowd is humorless. For those offended by my “communist” comment, I’ll send a therapy dog to your “safe place” of choice in Madison.”

Interestingly enough, Duffy — who is now making fun of “PC culture” and “safe places” — also called for the theatre to be a “safe space” for all people after Vice president-elect Mike Pence was booed and lectured during a showing of Hamilton.

Nancy Pelosi clap

President Donald Trump's White House is committing obstruction of justice by claiming Hope Hicks has "immunity" from testifying before Congress about her time in the administration and even transition.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked about the administration's contention by CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju.

Pelosi replied that it was, "obstruction of justice."

The answer could be important as Congressional precedence says that obstruction of justice is a high crime or misdemeanor worthy of impeachment.

Published

Dick Cheney's daughter continued to receive ferocious backlash after she falsely claimed that Donald Trump's tent cities are not "concentration camps."

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) demanded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) learn history -- while revealing she knew little -- during a Twitter outburst.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something ... we need to do something about it," Ocasio-Cortez noted.

Right-wing radio show ratings tank as host undermines Trump’s ‘promises made, promises kept’ re-election slogan

Published

on

The fact Donald Trump's base sticks with him no matter what he does is negatively impacting a conservative radio host attempting to hold the president accountable for his campaign promises.

Michael Alan Weiner, who goes by the stage name Michael Savage, hosts the "Savage Nation" radio show.

The host once praised Trump as the "Winston Churchill of our time" has been criticizing the president recently, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

"Now Mr. Savage is an outlier once again, dismayed more each day as the budget deficit continues to swell, thousands of new migrants are apprehended at the border, and the wall Mr. Trump promised to erect and make Mexico pay for remains unbuilt," The Times explained.
