Muth: Baby McPoutyFace Dem’s throw congressional hissy fit

The question the gun grabbers keep asking in response to the Orlando nightclub massacre by a wacko ISIS sympathizer is why anyone needs an “assault rifle.” The simple and obvious answer, of course, is…

Because the bad guys have them! Duh.

To paraphrase the old Mexican Proverb made famous by actor Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars, when a man with a .45 meets a man with an AR-15, the man with the .45 is a dead man.

But that didn’t stop the Democrat gun control jihadists in Congress from exploiting the Orlando tragedy to again pursue their anti-Second Amendment agenda.

At what I can only imagine was a high-level strategy confab of liberal congressional leaders, long-toothed race-hustling Rep. John Lewis – obviously trying to relive his glory days as a 1960s-era civil rights agitator – appears to have channeled “Otter” from the movie Animal House.

Lewis: “I think we have to go all out. I think this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!”

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “And we’re just the guys to do it!”

Thus, on the evening of June 22, 2013, a date that surely will not go down in history, a gaggle of elected Democrats from the United States House of Representatives launched a ... sit-in.

Talk about a really futile and stupid gesture!

These Baby McPoutyFace Dems then proceeded to shout down House Speaker Paul Ryan like a bunch of thuggish union picketers when he attempted to actually conduct the people’s business.

It was an epic hissy-fit/temper-tantrum absent only a threat to hold their collective breaths until their goofy faces turned blue.

At one point, somebody sent the spoiled brats some pizzas. What they should have been sent were some pacifiers. What an embarrassment.

Meanwhile, on the campaign trail…

“Crooked” Hillary Clinton should be required to declare the Mainstream Media as in-kind campaign donors on her FEC report for their collective false reporting on Donald Trump. The latest example: The tabloid headlines claiming Trump “questioned” or “attacked” Crooked’s religion.

Um, no, he didn’t.

He questioned and attacked the MEDIA for devoting far more attention to the religious beliefs and practices of Republican candidates than it does of Democrat candidates, making the accurate observation that, as a result, the public knows comparatively little about Clinton’s faith.

Hillary should also be required to declare Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio as in-kind donors for continuing to sabotage Trump’s campaign with their incessant yipping at his heels and regurgitating the Democrats’ talking points about “racism” and “mysogynism.”

Trump’s correct: They should just shut up.

Or maybe these cry-babies should just imitate the Baby McPoutyFace Dems and conduct their own hissy-fit sit-in on the floor of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next month.
