A Louisiana delegate at the Republican National Convention on Monday uncorked an unhinged rant against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden during the 2020 RNC roll call.
After being recognized, delegate Ross Little Jr. immediately went into an angry rant about Biden, whom he accused of trying to put his state’s oil and gas industry “under the yoke of bondage.”
And Little Jr.’s rhetoric only got more heated from there, as he accused Joe Biden of “threatening” the lives of residents in his state by “taking away guns and ammo.”
He then turned the heat up a notch further when he attacked Biden’s stance on reproductive rights.
“Louisiania is a pro-life state where we love both mother and child, but where Joe Biden is hiding in the dark waiting to take the lives of our unborn babies!” he shouted.
The Louisiana delegate also accused Biden of wanting to hurt his state with “the dreariness of socialism.”

‘I don’t believe that’s by our laws,’ Trump says of counting all the votes in an election
Repeating his desire for a winner to be declared on the night of November 3, President Donald Trump told reporters Tuesday that he doesn't "believe" tallying votes for weeks after Election Day is lawful, a remark observers interpreted as yet another open signal of the president's intention to challenge the counting of legally submitted ballots.
"Donald Trump is planning to everything he can to make sure your vote doesn't count."—Indivisible"It would be very, very proper and very nice if a winner were declared on November 3, instead of counting ballots for two weeks, which is totally inappropriate, and I don't believe that that's by our laws," Trump said before departing the White House for a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan. "I don't believe that. So we'll see what happens."
Trump’s rants about ‘rigged’ elections are ‘aiding’ Putin’s efforts to undermine America: H.R. McMaster
Retired United States Army lieutenant general H.R. McMaster chatted with Axios co-founder Mike Allen Wednesday about how President Donald J. Trump's "rigged" election talk could be playing right into Russian President Vladimir Putin's hands.
"I have not hesitated to criticize President Trump at all. You can probably find with a quick Google search 30 times when I have said the president is wrong, he gives Putin this space to aid in this effort to deny what is even completely obvious," McMaster said. "This is what my friend and national security adviser used to call Putin's implausible deniability. It's very important to criticize the failures of policy and actions by the president, by others, in getting Putin his space ... I criticize both political parties because what we see is a tendency for leaders within both parties to compromise our principles as Americans for partisan critical advantage. That's one of the ways Putin plays us. We have to stop doing that and I think President Trump has not helped our cause by raising doubts about what is super obvious."
West Virginia voter said she expected Trump to help with coal miner jobs — but he’s done nothing
There were 100 million eligible voters in 2016 who didn't vote then, and they are the largest bloc of voters who could shift the election if they got to the polls
The top county with the most non-voters is McDowell County, West Virginia. The state is also the lowest-voting state in the country. Interviewing some of the residents there, NBC News' Morgan Radford said that President Donald Trump won the county with about 4,000 votes to Hillary Clinton's over 1,000 votes. There were 11,000 people who didn't vote at all.
As they head to the polls this year, they're still just as discouraged as they were before.
