Scalise – “David Duke Unburdened”
MSNBC host Joey Reid said Tuesday on his show “The ReidOut” that Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) resembles former Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke “minus the baggage.” .
Discussing the failed Kevin McCarthy vote, Reid asked: “Who are their replacements?” He asked.
Former Republican Hill staffer Curt Bardella said, “Steve Scalise, Jim Jordan, is the second-highest vote-getter in the Republican convention today for speaker, but he said he doesn’t want it.”
Reed: “218 votes are not for this guy. As soon as he becomes speaker, the next day a George Clooney documentary comes out about what he did when he was an assistant coach at Ohio State and all those young men got robbed. So he doesn’t want to be a speaker for good reason.
Bardella: “So I think Scalise is the most likely candidate.”
“David Duke without baggage,” Reid replied.
He continued, “He should go to a fundraiser, if he’s the speaker, Steve Scalise. When former political reporter David Duke first met Scalise when he was a state representative and Scalise, who is from Louisiana, told him, “I’m like David Duke without the baggage.”
