For a political party whose last shred of survival lies in embracing America’s diversity, its leaders have absolutely no idea how not to stick their figurative feet into their proverbial pie holes.
Today, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley appeared on CNN’s Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien, one of the few journalists on television who refuses to let politicians spew nonfactual talking points without calling them out with actual facts. This generally yields some deliciously entertaining (albeit pathetic) quotes. And Grassley didn’t disappoint.
When asked why he was against the Center for Disease Control (CDC) studying the public health issue of gun violence in an area such as Chicago, he replied:
“I think that’s the place in our society where you would study the issue of black violence on blacks.”
