Of all the obviously fake excuses a Republican has given for not having heard an oft-repeated, well-known ludicrous comment from a fellow Republican so as not to upset the frothy-mouthed base … this might take the cake.

He might as well have said, “Sorry, I didn’t hear about her. I was wearing a towel.”

I wish this was actually a sign of Rs turning their backs on each other Mariah-gif style. But it only ever seems to be them dodging and avoiding being quoted one way or the other until the newscycle moves on, and/or the polls come in and it turns out The Base loved the OP reprehensible act anyway…

Considering his background? ESPN and the sports section of the newspaper.

As a former Alabamian, I can tell you they value two things above all: god and football, and not necessarily in that order.
