Washington, D.C. Mayor Purposely Uses Bad Grammar

Democratic Washington, D.C. mayor Muriel Bowser used grossly incorrect grammar in a recent tweet to her constituents.

Note to the students of the Washington, D.C. public school system:

The way your mayor wrote that sentence was not grammatically correct. When you write sentences, hopefully your teachers tell you to write them correctly so you can be among the 59 percent of D.C. students who graduate high school in four years, according to 2012 statistics, and you won’t have to become a union card-carrying public school teacher who supports Muriel Bowser and her stilted faux-populist appeals.

Interestingly, Bowser just told the people of D.C. at a question-and-answer event, “You have a mayor who hates guns,” not “You Has a mayor that hates guns.”

But then she flubbed it at the end: “If it was up to me, we wouldn’t have any handguns in the District of Columbia. I swear to protect the Constitution and what the courts say, but I will do it in the most restrictive way as possible.”
