The new shortest unit of time is the time it takes a discussion about slavery between two Republicans to jump the rails and a tank full of sharks that do indeed have lasers on their heads and crash into a sewage treatment plant.
In a Facebook exchange first reported by the New Hampshire Union Leader, GOP state Rep. Werner Horn and former state Sen. Dan Hynes were discussing an article Hynes had posted, which contained a historian’s claim that Mr. Trump was the “most racist president in American history.” Hynes pointed out that past presidents had owned slaves. “Wait, owning slaves doesn’t make you racist…” Horn said in reply to the post, to which Hynes replied, “I guess not.”
Horn also said in the Facebook conversation that “owning slaves wasn’t a decision predicated on race but on economics. It’s a business decision.”
It’s hot, I’m tired, and I don’t have much to say about this except the fact that New Hampshire state Rep. Werner Horn (R-Merrimack County) was born in Nuremberg should be too ridiculous to be true. But it isn’t.
