Newsweek decided that it would be a great idea to get admitted child molester Dennis Hastert on the record about what’s wrong with “Trump’s Congress.” Can’t make this up.

Why would any human being with a soul care what Dennis Hastert has to say about anything, much less what’s going on in Washington?
Dennis Hastert is a pedophile who raped and abused boys. It is absolutely outrageous that a media organization would seek his commentary. https://t.co/bwokbvdx5t

Hastert is a historical figure — the highest-ranking U.S. politician to go to prison.

What was the editorial meeting like when someone said, "You know who we should get a take from, the GOP Speaker who was a child molester." https://t.co/by2PJkbrBC

/1 Newsweek has published one of the most irresponsible, stupid "stories" that I've ever seen. I'm stunned here https://t.co/gh0DMJ7erQ

To say it is an embarrassment for Newsweek would be a massive understatement.
Why the hell would anyone want to hear from a sexual predator like Hastert ever again? Weren't we just talking about Weinstein? https://t.co/zVZIrnCNM0

You know you're desperate when you start citing a pedophile & child rapist. Disgusting. https://t.co/k87dAByriZ

This man is a pedophile and shouldn’t be given a platform to share any of his ideas on anything. He deserves nothing but scorn and shame https://t.co/lOYYtwCCzY

By giving credibility to pedophiliac former House Speaker, national newsmagazine demonstrates what's wrong with modern journalism. https://t.co/6pagcBvEVE

There is no legitimate explanation possible for how this story idea was formulated and implemented.
