Sen. Chris Murphy is as anti-Trump as it gets, but his shame is that he doesn’t hesitate before posting idiotic, divisive, and downright untrue things to Twitter is his neverending attempt to own the president. Maybe someday he’ll have some popular Democratic policies to argue, for but now he’s always front and center with hot takes like this one:
Trump calls immigrants “animals”.
Says neo-nazis are “fine people.”
And yesterday he used anti-Semitic code language to lead “lock up Soros” cheers.
I know many of my Republican friends abhor Trump’s attacks on minority groups, but this is not a “both sides” moment.

Hey Sen. Murphy, you forgot to mention that President Trump called all Mexicans rapists too, remember? Or did you run out of characters?
We get it: the midterms are closing in, Democrats are losing ground in the “Jobs vs. Mobs” election, and so the narrative has been flipped on its side; it’s not even a both-sides issue — all the hate is coming from Trump and the GOP (if you ignore, well, a whole lot).
We could easily sit here and tear Murphy’s tweet apart, but plenty of people are doing it for us:
This is how they lie. https://t.co/wbrLGEzJO0

You are a liar

You literally just lied 3 times.

Funny how your hate filled memory works. Good luck letting hate consume you.

There are so many lies in this tweet. You should be really ashamed of yourself.

Are you really that worried about losing the election?

No. He didn't. You are such a shameless liar and the country doesn't need this shit today.

Aaaand that would be completely false.

Nothing to see here–just Chris Murphy being dishonest as usual. https://t.co/PxaDVa2Q5z

This is intentionally dishonest.
-Trump called MS-13 gang members "animals," not immigrants.
-Trump said there were some "fine people" on both sides of the 2017 Charlottesville rally (which drew a lot of criticism), he never said "neo-nazis are fine people." https://t.co/QhDOYEHfSF

US Senate candidate Chris Murphy just called bloodthirsty gang bangers MS-13 "immigrants"
Please retweet this so we can spread the word. This violent liberal mentality MUST be stopped. https://t.co/Z4r6Buroke

He called MS-13 “animals” (they are)
He called protesters who didn’t want statue removed “fine people” (they are)
And democrat icon Farrakhan calls Jews “termites” (doesn’t even use code) https://t.co/ZsIbHE3PU9

We’re glad someone pointed that out. It wasn’t Trump’s finest moment of oratory, but the “fine people” on both sides in Charlottesville weren’t neo-Nazis and Antifa, but rather everyday people who disagreed on whether Confederate monuments should be taken down.
What is more upsetting – that this lying, hate monger is a sitting Senator or that his followers may actually believe this garbage? https://t.co/oK3DBlKVAg

That is outrageous propaganda, you are simply throwing red meat to your Leftist base. Shame on you.

It’s a Great time to piece together half truths to fit your political narrative. Bravo.
— FrontRowBrian (@FrontRowBrian) October 27, 2018
Typical political garbage. Changing intent and true meaning to paint BS for you stupid followers. This shouldn't be allowed on twitter.
— Hardo (@hardovski) October 27, 2018
Wasn’t Twitter’s No. 1 priority “election integrity” and getting rid of fake news?
This is a complete lie and betrays your promotion of hate as a political tool that you democrats are using 24/7 these days.

This really is the worst kind of crass opportunism.
