Brian Kemp is outraged that people are buying his bullshit about widespread voter fraud now that it’s being directed at him:
Gov. Brian Kemp is fed up with the unrelenting attacks from conspiracy theorists calling on him to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia. But he’s even more enraged that some of those peddlers of false claims are targeting his wife and three daughters.
“It has gotten ridiculous — from death threats, (claims of) bribes from China, the social media posts that my children are getting,” he said. “We have the ‘no crying in politics rule’ in the Kemp house. But this is stuff that, if I said it, I would be taken to the woodshed and would never see the light of day.”
Some Republican elites are apparently going to have to learn that the party’s voters take their kayfabe seriously the hard way. Other Republican elites, of course, are high on their own supply, and the lines get blurrier every month.
