The only thing worse than Donald Trump as President is having to live in the same country with the idiots who elected him. One of those idiots who’s proving to be more dangerous all the time, is Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), who managed to get himself elected so he could make up conspiracy theories. After tweeting out video of himself as an anime character slaying Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and President Joe Biden, Gosar faces censure from his colleagues in Congress. They are expected to vote on Wednesday.
Censure is a formal statement of condemnation, used sparingly throughout history to call out the worst offenders. Gosar’s threats place him in the same category as people who commit gross ethical violations, among other infractions.
According to MSNBC, Gosar gave a statement following the uproar over the video that did not include any apologies.
‘It is a symbolic cartoon. It is not real life. Congressman Gosar cannot fly. The hero of the cartoon goes after the monster, the policy monster of open borders. I will always fight to defend the rule of law, securing our borders, and the America First agenda.’
Half of Twitter thought censure was the right punishment, while the other half had different ideas about what would be appropriate. Read some of their comments below:
