Good Lord. And this is the ad he’s currently running. He calls Chinese workers “ China People” and Mitch McConnell “cocaine Mitch”.
No way.He may have paid his dues to society in the slam
This is all made more interesting by the fact that Blankenship maintains an expensive residence in Las Vegas aside from his West Virgnia home, has considered Chinese citizenship for himself in the past, has given public interviews noting a distinction between "communism and dictatorship", admires Chinese state control of their economy and is reportedly engaged to marry a woman born in Beijing. But hey, the ad's not about him and "China people", is it. Good thing, too, since there's a lot about China and Blankenship that potential voters might find intriguing.
He expressed admiration for how Beijing exercises central control over its economy.
“Americans confuse the words communism and dictatorship,” he said. “The Chinese are running a dictatorial capitalism and it’s very effective. That’s the way corporations are run. Corporations are not a democracy.”
Send Blankenship the scripts! Problem is, he's dumb enough to load up not only the scripted suggestions but the letter that enclosed them. One hopes W.Va voters are smarter than that but I wouldn't be too sure about Blankenship. I know he has his own money in the campaign but is he his own campaign manager too?LOL I hope he wins the primary. I also expect him to broaden his publicly racist remarks, maybe making dozens of anti-Semitic remarks next, maybe targeting 3 or 4 GOP Senators in the AIPAC, and also dissing Jared and Ivanka.
So if he wins anyway will Trump campaign for him in the general?So, Trump tweets out this morning telling people not to vote for Blankenship. But, his only argument is that Blankenship will lose in the general election. The fact that he’s a racist responsible for killing a bunch of people is apparently not a problem for Trump.
