I usually like to watch the Republican rebuttal to the State of the Union Address but this year I missed it, so I have had to read about it. Once again I am completely stumped as to where the Republicans find their rebuttal-ists… and what planet they find them on.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley gave this year’s Republican rebuttal and in it for some reason, she decided to make references to Donald trump and his proposed policy to ban all Muslims from entering the United States. Coming from a family of immigrants herself (who hasn’t?) she said: “No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.”
That makes sense. But then the next day, when asked to elaborate on her comment by reporters, she concluded:
“After all, when you’ve got immigrants who are coming here legally, we’ve never in the history of this country passed any laws or done anything based on race or religion. Let’s not start that now.”
Good grief! I’m wordless… Can anyone please tell me…Do Republicans go to school? Ever?
