You’ve gotta hand it to Sen. Chris Murphy. Just when you think he can’t possibly stoop any lower, he proves us wrong.
Earlier today, he tried to turn Donald Trump’s tweets about Mika Brzezinski into an opportunity to paint Republicans as evil, health-insurance-snatching moral degenerates. Then, for an encore, he decided to slime Dana Loesch and the NRA:
I think the @NRA is telling people to shoot us.

We think he’s completely full of crap. He’s grossly misrepresenting Loesch’s message and if he doesn’t realize that, he’s even stupider than we thought.
Practice thinking. You aren't very good at it yet. https://t.co/I6tQ2L8DPr

But it’s probably much safer to say that he knows he’s lying and doesn’t care. And why should he? He’s made it his life’s mission to fan flames, and it looks like he’s getting what he wants:
Wow yep @NRA is telling people to shoot us.

This is despicable and disgusting. Everyone involved with this ad should be ashamed of themselves.

What the hell?? This is terrifying.

Good Lord! This is a call to war. NRA execs should be arrested and charged with inciting to riot.

I think this woman, and whoever made this video, needs to be arrested for inciting public violence…this video is clearly inciting violence.

What the actual hell is this? What has America become! This WHOLE AD is a DAMN LIE. It is being USED TO INSTIGATE VIOLENCE. This is SO WRONG

Can they, the NRA & this ridiculous woman be prosecuted now if someone decides to shoot someone while screaming about Liberals ?

It certainly is inciting people to violence. Not to mention filled with lies as happened during the campaign and against President Obama.

How is the latest @NRA ad even legal? This is some serious Third Reich level fear-mongering of The Other.

This .@NRA ad is fomenting violence, even promoting civil war. It's hysterical and appeals to people's basest fears. It's unconscionable.

Congratulations, Chris Murphy. Mission accomplished.
