Andrea Mitchell Is Skeptical That Greg Abbott Is Actually Disabled

Font Size:

Earlier today, Alex Griswold told you about Wendy Davis doubling down on her campaign-imploding “Look at the cripple” ad. Or tripling down, or quadrupling down, or however many times it’s been at this point. She told Andrea Mitchell that the ad was “fair.” Oh, and Abbott is “working to kick that ladder down.” Well said, Wendy.

But believe it or not, Mitchell said something even dumber. At about the 1:00 mark in the above video, she emitted this brainfart:

“Could you have gone after what you see as his hypocrisy by pointing out what he did in that rape case, what he did in these other cases, without the stark image of the empty wheelchair, which seemed to be trying to point people towards his own supposed disability?”

Supposed disability?

Does Andrea Mitchell know something about Greg Abbott’s alleged injury that we need to hear about? After all, those evil Republicans are capable of just about anything. For all we know, Abbott faked getting hit by a tree, got a bunch of money in court, and spent the next 30 years pretending to be confined to a wheelchair. Dear lord, he’s a criminal mastermind.

Go get ‘im, Wendy. All you have to do between now and Nov. 4 is get in the same room with him again and make sure the cameras are running. Then tip him out of his fake wheelchair and kick him in the legs until he jumps up and proves Andrea Mitchell right. Instant landslide victory.
