Georgia’s new Sen. Kelly Loeffler doesn’t know what she’s talking about, but that won’t stop her

Note: I’m collecting lies for a Georgia edition of Lies and the Lying Liars who Lie them. Send them to me! Especially valuable: GOP mailers, like this smear on Rep. Josh McLaurin that got the Georgia Republican party sued for libel. By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Recently, Rep. Doug Collins said Democrats were in love with terrorists and was forced to  apologize for his wrongful nonsense. Impeached for Life President Trump, never one to miss a chance to go even lower—and who never apologizes—followed that up by retweeting a picture of Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dressed in Iranian garb by an Iranian flag.That’s some serious third-grade level taunting. Trump was roundly condemned, but #MAGA cheered him on,…

David Perdue’s MAGA hat is glued on too tight. Teresea Tomlinson thinks that’s a disqualification

By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Having put on the red cap long ago, Republican Sen. David Perdue (D-GA) is locked into see-no-evil mode when it comes to Trump’s faults and misdeeds. Their relationship goes back to a Trump Tower meeting in 2014. Back then, Perdue earned an endorsement tweet from The Donald, and in 2016, he returned the favor after Trump had sewed up the GOP nomination.
