Stupid politician tricks…

20 April 2019

When it comes to stupid politicians, something there is that loves a wall.  Although this one will never beat the one pulled by Raj Peter Bhakta … a Republican candidate for the 13th District U.S. House of Representatives seat in Eastern Pennsylvania who was running in 2006 on his “fame” as a a former star on the NBC show “The Apprentice,” (yeah, the show where some guy named Donald Trump would yell “You’re fired!” at people)… but it deserves an honorable mention.

Bhakta attempted to film a commercial with himself crossing the Rio Grande from Mexico into Texas on an elephant. Neither the elephant nor the border patrol was amused. 

Duncan Hunter, a Republican house member for the 50th California Congressional District, is apparently facing a serious challenge from his Democratic opponent.  Hunter, a ally of Donald Trump (Bhakta’s one time co-star?) has been running on an anti-immigration platform (and some other stupid ideas), so had the bright idea of having himself filmed crossing from Mexico into the United States.  One… teeny…. weeny… problem.  Hunter is out on bail, pending his trial on federal corruption charges, and — as a condition of his bail — cannot leave the confines of the continental United States.

Whoops!
