Nothing bespeaks a metropolis’s wholesome, vibrant tradition like an enormous “grownup leisure trade,” and the proliferation of strip golf equipment!
At the least, when you hearken to Tiffany Cross . . .
On her MSNBC present this morning, Cross devoted a phase to a political advert presently operating in Georgia known as, “Get Your Booty to the Ballot.” It options strippers dancing round a “pole” urging black voters to get to the “ballot” within the Senate run-off elections.
Cross had as a visitor the creator of the advert. Cross bragged about how the “grownup leisure trade” in Atlanta brings in extra money than all of the sports activities groups within the metropolis. And she boasted that Atlanta:
“Ranks fifth within the nation for the best variety of strip golf equipment per 100,000 residents.”
And that is a superb factor??
Cross and the advert creator mentioned the purpose of the advert was to achieve black males who prefer to go to strip golf equipment: “to fulfill them the place they’re.”
And the advert itself made its attraction to black voters specific. After one speaker urged folks to go to their web site to study the place the candidates stand on points that have an effect on “us,” one other speaker mentioned: “and by ‘us,’ we imply black folks.”
Earlier within the present, Cross had on former Republican Congressman Jack Kingston of Georgia. When Kingston urged folks to respect others with differing political beliefs, together with these from “flyover states,” Cross mentioned she:
“cannot recall any related disrespect to of us in flyover states.”
Cross cannot recall liberals expressing disrespect for folks from flyover nation? Actually?
Obama’s “bitter clingers.” Hillary’s “deplorables.” Hi there?
Video clip at tweet.
Word: Cross’s incapacity to recall “bitter clingers” or “deplorable” however, we do give her credit score for having Kingston as a visitor. He isn’t your typical Trump-hating “MSNBC Republican,” really expressing respect for President Trump’s proper to problem the election outcomes.
Here is the transcript.
