Gone from being the only R Congressman in Michael Moore's movie to have a seriously moral stance on the Iraq war to a Trump attack mutt, Jimmy Duncan defies logic in going after a journalist.

From the Washington Post:

“A traditional president would have reacted carefully to the London Bridge terrorist attack by instilling calm, being judicious about facts and appealing to the country’s better angels,” Rucker wrote.

“But Donald Trump is no traditional president. He reacted impulsively to Saturday night’s carnage by stoking panic and fear, being indiscreet with details of the event and capitalizing on it to advocate for one of his more polarizing policies and to advance a personal feud.”

Pretty fair assessment actually and one that is pretty much universal everywhere but in Duncan's mind...Duncan on the floor of Congress:

“Apparently Mr. Rucker is so blinded by hatred for the president he cannot see straight and has written one of the most unfair, one-sided articles I have ever read.”

I guess if it isn't his side it's one sided.
