    Truly a WTF moment:

    I guess she must be one more of those people who get their “facts” from “alternative media” instead of the MSM. Just breathtakingly stupid.

    And people really rely on an idiot like this to make common sense laws, or to vote properly or to color inside the lines! Scary stuff

    But the media doesn't talk about that is ripped right from the Trump/WH playbook...

    Party politics at its finest

    Claudia Tenney may have really stepped in it this time. Her upstate district the NY-22 is quite conservative, so it shouldn't surprise anyone that a Democrat running against her, state assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, has an A-rating from the NRA himself (as does Tenney). He's been quite voluble about her overall unsuitability for the post she holds plus he can afford to call her out on any of her rants about liberal Dems and the Second Amendment. This gaffe of hers just gave him another opening.

    Meanwhile today Brindisi was taking her to task over voting for HR-620, the GOP bill that throws a stick in the spokes of the Americans with Disability Act. The Trump administration is making an effort to weaken that act. The Senate has yet to take up the bill, which was passed by the House.

    Not to take the thread off topic, it's always interesting when right to lifers argue against assistance to the disabled... but that's the GOP for you. Everything in a vacuum, nothing connects to anything else, their standard recipe for the Salad of No Accountability. This is what happens to a party when its base has become a fragmented bunch of johnny one-noters with litmus tests on assorted policy issues. One from column A, one from column C, how about some fries with that... oh wait, we don't want to end up making a happy meal here by mistake, do we. ​

    Anyway Claudia Tenney may have been on party-line autopilot voting for that anti-ADA bill, but Brindisi happens to chair the state's Subcommittee on Students with Special Needs... so there again Tenney may have stepped in it by not asking the GOP to give her a pass on HR-620 to avoid giving Brindisi campaign fodder on a topic he's well versed in.

    File under topping herself: after her gaffe over false claims of mass murderers turning up mostly Democrats, Tenney complained in an email to the Washington Post that Democrats are who are politicizing the Parkland tragedy. If she loses her seat on November 6, Tenney could maybe get a job in the White House press office helping them distract from The Don's tweets every time they go off message from the party line. She could become their infotainment director.

    I was just about to start a thread on that bill that weakens the ADA. That one is heinous and deserves a ton of attention, otherwise it will be another pea-and-shell game they will play, getting this passed while everyone else is talking about Parkland.

    Happy to see the divide grow, sows like Tenney contribute big time, I think everyone is done with talking nice.

    Soooo... ultimately there is no REAL news? That there is no truth?

    I have to think that's a pretty disheartening way to see things. Unless of course, we're being selective in what we think is REAL news & truth. IF that is the case, that's even more disheartening. As we've seen with the Representative, sometimes one's choices in REAL news, isn't so real.
