Conspiracy Theory

Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-Moscow) doesn't believe the intelligence community's assessment that Russia conspired to interfere in the 2016 election and provided material support to Wikileaks, but he does believe the Neo Nazis who carried tiki-torches through Charlottesville were actually Democratic cosplayers.

“It’s all baloney,” Rohrabacher said.

Under Rohrabacher’s scenario, a former “Hillary and Bernie supporter” got Civil War re-enactors to gather under the guise of protecting a Robert E. Lee statue there.

“It was a setup for these dumb Civil War re-enactors,” Rohrabacher said. “It was left-wingers who were manipulating them in order to have this confrontation” and to “put our president on the spot.”

You know, I want to snark, but I can't. I can't because this level of delusion should exclude someone from holding public office or even holding a driver's license. I would not trust Dana Rohrabacher to drive a fucking golf cart.

Conservatism is a mental illness.
