It's Truly Embarrassing

Anyone who reads this blog understands that I have a rather low opinion of senator Chris Murphy from my state of Connecticut.  Murphy is not the brightest of men (to put it mildly).  Actually, he's like a list of talking points with a mouth.  That does not make him unique in Washington.  In fact, may of the politicians there normally speak in talking points.  For Murphy, however, that is all he ever seems to do.

I was reminded of that again today when Murphy made another of his idiotic statements, this time about the Manchester terror attack.  Fortunately, Murphy was on CNN at the time, so almost no one saw it.  Murphy actually said that he worries about President Trump's rhetoric because it could cause a terror attack like the one in the UK to take place here in America.

Think about that for a minute.  The thugs of ISIS attack teenaged girls with a bomb and kill over twenty while maiming many more.  ISIS acted in the UK as part of its worldwide assault on those it considers infidels.  It was a disgusting and cowardly act by people that President Trump properly calls losers.  ISIS has been mounting terror attacks around the world for the last four years.  Some have even been in the USA.  During almost all of those attacks, the man in the White House was president Obama.  Murphy liked his rhetoric, but the attacks went on.  Now that President Trump is in the White House, Murphy announces that it is Trump's rhetoric that will cause an attack in the USA.  That's right; Murphy is blaming any ISIS attack in advance on President Trump.  Maybe by tomorrow, Murphy will blame the 2015 terror attack in San Bernardino on Trump's rhetoric.  By next week we may hear from Murphy that Trump's rhetoric caused 9-11.  If we wait longer, we may learn from Murphy that Trump's rhetoric caused the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Civil War and even the Black Death in medieval Europe.

It's truly embarrassing that my state chose a moron like Murphy as our senator.
