American Thinker -- Is there a more despicable person in Washington than Senator Harry Reid?
We remember his outrageous remarks about Governor Romney's taxes in 2012. This is what he said about the election of Mr. Trump:
Departing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid lashed out at Donald Trump on Friday as “a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate.”
The Nevada Democrat said in a statement that “If Trump wants to roll back the tide of hate he unleashed, he has a tremendous amount of work to do and he must begin immediately.”
Reid said white nationalists, Russian president Vladimir Putin, and the Islamic State extremist group are celebrating Trump’s election “while innocent, law-abiding Americans are wracked with fear.” That “does not feel like America,” Reid said.
Frankly, it does not get worse than Senator Reid.
We are happy to see that President Obama and Senator Schumer congratulated the president-elect.
It was even better to see that Senator Manchin, who will be up for re-election in very red West Virginia in 2018, fought back, saying this:
I want to be very clear, he does not speak for me. As difficult as it is for anyone to lose an election, the American people have spoken and Donald Trump is our President-elect. Senator Reid’s words needlessly feed the very divisiveness that is tearing this country apart," Manchin said. "We are Americans first, not Democrats or Republicans first. Unfortunately, there are some who forget that at times like these it is wrong to put party and politics above our country.The Democrats will be a lot better off now that Senator Reid, and the Clintons, are in the past. Senator Reid was divisive and made the U.S. Senate unworkable for years. The Clintons, at the same time, corrupted the party and everything they touched.
Maybe someday Reid will sit back and realize what a failure he was as a political leader in Washington.
Blog Author's Comments -- Anyone who thinks Reid will spend one nanosecond in introspection is delusional. That would require intellectual self-honesty and moral courage. Two concepts you do not hear in the same sentence with Harry Reid or Democrat. The new Attorney General should launch an investigation into Reid's illegal land holdings. I also believe that Senator Manchin who is up for re-election in 2018 is covering his ass with what he said regarding Reid.
Washington D.C. will be a better place once Harry Reid is gone. Reid personifies the Leftism in the Democrat Party, all hate and malevolence. This little man could never be trusted. The GOP leaders all knew that Dirty Harry was rotten to the core, but they stood by and did nothing to attempt to stop him. We shall see if wimpy Mitch McConnell uses the power he has to move Trump's Supreme Court appointments through. He is another career politician who would not have cared if Hillary Clinton had been elected.
Like Obama, Reid just plain hates anyone in America who does not agree with him. I also can't help from believing that somebody really did whack Reid around a bit, and there was no "exercise equipment" accident that caused his injuries. Harry Reid is the face of the Democrat party.
