It has to still bother Sen. Amy Klobuchar that her one-time rival for the office of president is now vice president. Kamala Harris has that awkward cackle, sure, but Klobuchar can still serve up a groaner of her own. She’s praising the Texas House Democrats who fled their state to deny Republicans a quorum, such as Rep. Gene Wu, who’s spending his time in D.C. trolling Fox News by making smiley faces out of his breakfast leftovers and posting them to Twitter. Wu and the rest of them are freedom fighters seeking salvation at the Capitol.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar: "We stand here with these people of courage, with freedom fighters who came to Washington D.C. to seek salvation because they are not going to be able to get that governor of Texas to protect the voting rights of the people." pic.twitter.com/7Te5s81tVy

Seeking “salvation” from government? Probably looking to the wrong place for answers.

Pretty sure that’s not the right place to go for Salvation.

I’ll say it again. Show me just 1 person who is having their right to vote suppressed. Just 1. This is a …… BIG LIE

@amyklobuchar Taking your ball and going away doesn't seem like a constructive way to solve any issues.
— CatLvr5303 (@CatLvr5303) July 14, 2021
Wow! Real vote suppressors in the flesh.

So, you agree with legislative minorities using tactics like the filibuster now? Interesting.

Did you just call yourselves freedom fighters? I don't know of any freedom fighter who fled their responsibilities on a chartered jet while then taking selfies with their brunch.

What do you call people who turn tail and run from a fight? Used to be cowards.

What a joke, freedom fighters? An insult to freedom, fighters and freedom fighters everywhere.

Democrat politicians continuing to treat Democrat voters like they are infants.
And, many continue to buy this garbage.

Freedom Fighters? Freedom fighters are the people from Cuba, China, Hong Kong and Russia who live under Communist dictators and rule, not the Texas Democratic representatives who flew to Washington DC for a vacation, instead of doing their jobs.

I once thought she was talking about Cuba…

We don’t see any way this ends up well for these brave freedom fighters.
