Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) on Friday discussed a dream his fourth wife had.
“My wife has the gift of premonition,” Higgins claimed, on Twitter.
“Last night she dreamed that Federal squads were in our home seizing guns, knives, ‘unauthorized foods’ and stored water,” Higgins continued. “They said we had been ‘reported.'”
“Becca awoke crying. ‘What happened to our freedom?’ she asked. What indeed,” he added.

Becca awoke crying.
What happened to our freedom? She asked.

True story: I had a dream last night about my dad. He and I were having a conversation. Then I woke up and remembered that he was killed a few months ago by GOP incompetence.

Bro what the hell? Are you seriously basing policy positions based on your wife's crazy dreams?

I do, too.
I had a nightmare that 545 children were cruelly ripped away from their parents by Trump and his jackbooted thugs, and put in freezing cages, never to be reunited with their parents again.
Then I woke up and realized Trump had actually done this.

Hello, Mr. Higgins. I am a big fan of your work with SWAT and Homeland Security, and appreciate your concern for losing freedoms and being reported. I am very interested in your fourth wife's gift of premonition and would love to hear some examples of her best ones.

You and Becca might need therapy because having bad dreams happens, but sharing them on Twitter pretending they are possible and there is a scary “federal squad” coming for your food is not normal.

This is Clay Higgins' 4th wife, probably because he keeps projecting his own fascist fever dreams onto them https://t.co/sqz5pyUt3m
