Only in the crazy, crazy world of MAGAland does speech make less sense than if you just grunted. Take, for example, Congressman Clay Higgins (LA), who, in almost the same breath, says Covid is “not dangerous” and that Covid is so deadly that it hit him “at death’s door.” Here’s how he answered Rep. Joe Neguse’s (D-CO) simple question about whether he thought Covid was dangerous or not.
“I would put a virus similar to the flu that I would consider dangerous low down on my priority list,” he said. But when Neguse presented a 2021 Louisiana newspaper article advocate Titled “Clay Higgins: ‘Covid Almost Killed Me,'” the reptilian lawmaker blinked and then slowly reversed course.
“Yes sir, I faced death from the Delta variant of Covid and I am still very much vaccinated,” he said, before bragging that he was completely unvaccinated. “I have battled Covid a few times. “Once it brought me to death’s door,” he repeated. (Look first Video below, posted by Acyn.)
But apparently knocking on death’s door is not nearly as dangerous as confronting a 25-year-old peaceful activist like the one the frightened lawmaker aggressively pushed and manhandled in May as if he were fighting for his life. (See below Videoposted by Farron Balanced.)
