Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) was roundly trashed on Twitter on Saturday morning for not even making an effort to offer his condolences to the family of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg after she passed away on Friday night from pancreatic cancer, with the Georgia Republican instead attacking the late justice for her position on a woman’s right to choose.
According to the GOP conservative, Ginsburg is responsible for the “murder” of “30 million innocent babies.”
“RIP to the more than 30 million innocent babies that have been murdered during the decades that Ruth Bader Ginsburg defended pro-abortion laws,” Collins Tweeted just hours after Ginsburg’s death was announced. “With @realDonaldTrump nominating a replacement that values human life, generations of unborn children have a chance to live.”
Collins was immediately swamped with comments calling him out over his ugly comments.

No one will remember Doug Collins in years to come but Ruth Badger Ginsburg will live on in history as a great American Supreme Court Justice and American patriot.

What a hideous thing to say. I thought Ted Cruz and #MoscowMitch were disgusting excuses for human beings, but this comment takes the cake. You are an uneducated, evil asshole. You are a low life, a pig, a demon. From all the women in this country, FUCK you.

If you cared about babies, you'd support the ACA, you'd be tearing down the walls of ICE facilities, you'd support Medicaid, TANF and food assistance.
If you cared about babies, you'd support public health measures during a pandemic.

‘Dangerously out of touch’: Ex-White House adviser slams Trump and Larry Kudlow for bragging about the economy
President Donald Trump's top economic and trade adviser Larry Kudlow is "out of touch," according to former White House economist Austan Goolsbee.
Speaking to MSNBC's Katy Tur, Goolsbee explained that Trump's celebration of the GDP is unwarranted because it took such a significant dive. It's a lot like losing $100 and getting back $60, said Tur.
"You score five runs in one inning, that is a good inning, but if you let up ten runs in the inning before that you're still way down," Goolsbee explained. "I think the numbers look very much like what happened in the job market over the summer. Where we started with a 21 million job loss, and we made back a little over half of that. And then we kind of stalled out. We're still adding jobs, but you also saw this morning another epically bad new unemployment claims number. You still have well over 700,000 people filing for unemployment insurance newly this week. Now we're seeing this on the GDP side. Certainly, this is a positive. You would not want a smaller number, but it has to be bigger and more sustained than what we saw today before we can say that we're back to normal."
Trump supporter ‘carried out on a stretcher’ as heat takes its toll on Tampa rally crowd: ‘Multiple people have passed out’
Medical personnel provided assistance to supporters of President Donald Trump during his Thursday rally in Tampa, Florida.
Reporters at the scene say that several people suffered heat related ailments.
"It’s hot hot hot at Trump’s large rally. 87 [degrees] and 71% humidity. Have noticed EMTs provide assistance for at least two people in the crowd, one carried out on a stretcher. Staffers trying get water bottles to people but quickly running out and having to restock," said Emily Larsen of Washington Examiner.
Trump’s latest convoluted Biden conspiracy is that he thinks Antifa is the same as the United States
It's difficult to understand the precise reasoning behind President Donald Trump's latest claim made at a Tampa, Florida rally on Thursday.
According to Trump, Biden once said that Antifa is an "idea" not an organization. Biden also said that America is an "idea." Ergo, Biden thinks the United States is Antifa.
It's the same logic used by first-semester philosophy majors: My dog's hair is blond. Trump's hair is blond. Therefore, my dog is president.
Biden speaks about America as not just a country, but a groundbreaking government that had never been attempted in the world when the country was founded.
