From yesterday’s Charlotte Observer:
That’s right. Donald Trump’s officers teargassed peaceful Americans. So he could use a church as a stage and a Bible as a prop.
It was terrifying. It was shameful. If it leaves you shaking your head and asking where the bottom is with this president, we understand. If it leaves you speechless, however, then maybe your name is Thom Tillis.
Tillis, of course, is North Carolina’s junior U.S. senator, and he’s locked in a very tight race for reelection. He’s been a little more visible lately with a new ad campaign that portrays him as a humble North Carolinian, a regular guy who cares about regular guy issues, like living paycheck to paycheck.
Regular folks might have some nits to pick there, in that if you lose your paycheck in North Carolina, you can thank Tillis for being an architect of one of the stingiest state unemployment programs in the country. The bigger campaign issue for Tillis, however, is that he long ago wanted to pretend he is a moderate who’s troubled by some of the president’s erratic words and deeds, but he doesn’t want to lose the president and his supporters. That led to some embarrassing episodes, such as when he expressed “grave concerns” in a Februrary 2019 op-ed about Trump’s national emergency declaration to fund a wall on the southern border, then voted to support it less than a month later.
Cal Cunningham (D. NC) is hitting Tillis on this as well:
A place of worship should be a place of peace, and faith calls us to stand for justice. It was wrong for the President to gas peaceful protesters for his photo-op.https://t.co/SKhmgsXa67Ã¢ÂÂ Cal Cunningham (@CalforNC) June 2, 2020
