Republican governors across America are really trying to outd*ck one another on rejecting Syrian refugees. Considering the revelation that at least one of the Paris terrorists who killed more than 120 people had a Syrian passport, it’s perfectly reasonable to show caution and careful examination with regards to accepting Syrian refugees. But given the plethora of Republican senators and governors collective rejection of Syrian refugees, it looks like nothing more than shameless pandering and a pathetic attempt to appear “tough.”
Going absolutely nowhere in the polls and reduced to the kiddie table 2016 GOP debates, professional YouTube screamer and occasional Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie proved once again that he’s an asshat. Moreover, a man whose career has been reduced to oversimplified posturing to stupid, sanctimonious and paranoid people.
Appearing on Hugh Hewitt’s radio program, Christie said he would even oppose allowing 5-year-old Syrian orphans into the country.
Here was the boisterous blob of buffoonery on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show:
I don’t trust this administration to effectively vet the people who are proposed to be coming in, in order to protect the safety and security of the American people, so I would not permit them in.The fact is, that we need for appropriate vetting and I don’t think orphans under five should be admitted into the United States at this point.
