GOP congressional candidate Stacey Dash fell flat on her face during her first interview on MSNBC on Thursday.
Since Dash announced her candidacy to represent California’s 44th Congressional District earlier this week, the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not Dash is too clueless to serve in public office.
Well, she answered that question thoroughly as host Ari Melber grilled her on issue after issue.
After saying that Congress should repeal Obamacare now and find a solution to people not having healthcare “later,” she was asked what she thinks about President Donald Trump’s racist remarks last summer in which he referred to a bunch of white supremacists and neo-Nazis as “very fine people” after blaming “both sides” for the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia.
When asked if Trump was wrong, Dash did nothing but defend him like a true sycophant.
“No, I think he’s absolutely right,” she said. There were two extreme sides.”
Dash claimed that both sides had a right to assemble, but maintained that even the protesters who countered the Nazis were extreme. Seriously.
How in the world can anyone think that people protesting Nazism and racism are extreme, especially since it was the white supremacist side that was being violent? They even killed a woman with a car and several committed assaults on camera.
Dash then called for both sides to “listen to each other” because that’s somehow going to magically solve hate in America. It’s kinda hard to listen when one side is screaming obscenities and epithets while carrying weapons.
Melber challenged her to identify the hate on the other side, but she only returned to talking about how it was their right to protest and then had the gall to claim that Trump wasn’t taking sides.
That’s news to former KKK leader David Duke, who praised Trump for blaming the counter-protesters.
Melber wanted to know if Dash supports Trump’s claim that Nazis and white supremacists are “very fine people,” and she punted by bringing up God.
“The only one who can judge is God,” Dash remarked as she became increasingly snippy.
As the interview came to a close, Melber seemingly laid the perfect trap for Dash to walk right into, and gave her Democratic opponents a gift they can run repeatedly in campaign ads until Election Day.
“At the end of the day, are you a Clueless person or a Legally Blonde person?” Melber asked.
“Of course, I’m a Clueless person,” Dash replied.
Not long after Dash announced her candidacy, Compton mayor Aja Brown threw her hat in the ring.
“To be clear, my decision to enter this race was not predicated on one person, but on the 700,000 residents of the 44th District,” Brown said on Thursday despite Dash’s candidacy more than likely motivating Brown’s decision.
“My vision for a greater 44th is anchored in delivering real results, through building coalitions that unify, partnering with our cities to bring forth new investment, new opportunities and focusing on collective progress that we can see and touch,” she said, proving that Dash is clearly the only clueless candidate in the race.
