Today In Republican Derptitude

Actually, this happened yesterday:

Arizona state congressman (and national congressional candidate) Adam Kwasman intercepted a bus full of migrant children in Phoenix Tuesday, tweeting, “Bus coming in. This is not compassion. This is the abrogation of the rule of law.”

Or so he thought. Kwasman was caught short when Arizona Central reporter Brahm Resnik informed him the bus he lamented was actually full of YMCA campers, who another reporter said were “laughing and taking pictures of the media.”

“I was actually able to see some of the children in the buses. The fear on their faces…. This is not compassion,” Kwasman was telling the reporter when Resnik broke the news to him.

“You know that was a bus with YMCA kids?” Resnik asked.

“Well, they were sad too,” Kwasman said. A moment later, he conceded, “That was a mistake,” and deleted the tweet.

His opponent should run this clip from now till Election Day:
