On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) explained why he’s “embarrassed” by the Texas Democrats’ trip to DC.
“I’m embarrassed in every way, shape and form about what they’re doing. First of all, they’re not showing up for work, debating their call. Secondly, they’re grossly misleading the public on what that election bill actually does. Next, they were on a private jet. Members of Congress aren’t even allowed to fly on private jets. They’re not wearing masks, and we’re trying to get all these mask mandates removed everywhere and make them optional. So there’s so many levels of hypocrisy and falsehoods in the stunt that those Democrat state legislators are doing from Texas. I mean, it’s just breathtaking.”
“I don’t see how it’s going to influence Joe Manchin. I mean, even the Democrats in West Virginia can see through this, I think. This is clearly a gimmick by the Democrats to play the race card to try to intimidate the few moderate Senators and Representatives that they have left. And when I say few, you can count them on one hand now. They’re all just extremely liberal or in there are a handful of moderates. But I don’t think it’s going to work. I don’t think Manchin’s going to going to budge on the filibuster.”
