Is Elise Stefanik Okay?
September 17, 2021
It’s now Day 2 of Elise Stefanik’s flip out after the Washington Post uncovered her Facebook ads inciting violence by invoking the deadly Capitol insurrection and echoing the white supremacist “great replacement” conspiracy theory to push a racist and xenophobic message.
Let’s just say she’s not handling it well.
Today, the Albany Times Union Editorial Board absolutely dragged Stefanik for echoing the same language racist demoagues have used throughout history.
Albany Times Union Editorial Board: “If there’s anything that needs replacing in this country — and in the Republican party — it’s the hateful rhetoric that Ms. Stefanik and far too many of her colleagues so shamelessly spew.”
Yesterday, her office sent out a statement emphasizing that she is definitely not mad for getting called out. Please don’t write that she is mad.
