Virginia Republican Corey Stewart won his Senate primary yesterday and earned a congratulatory tweet from President Donald Trump:
Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!

Which actress Patricia Arquette promptly responded to, calling America a “sh-thole country” because of it:
You are enforcing a White Supremicist. First you backed Roy Moore, now this? #sh-thole country.

And Salena Zito predicts problems for the GOP over Stewart’s win, too:
Prediction despite several very good GOP challengers running for U.S. Senate in this cycle Corey Stewart will become the media’s standard bearer of who the GOP is — and every time he screws up, and he will, they will point to him and say, “see!”
