Enemy combatants (we’re currently in wars) and traitors also work.

u/Stormy8888 May 18 '21

They can spell? I thought he was to busy barricading himself to, maybe save his own hide from the terrorouists to think about stuff like that.

Whether they’re tourist terrorist or regular people republicans do not want to be around their constituents.

u/PenskeReynolds May 18 '21

America has already determined he is an idiot.

I saw an interesting commentary on this. Their conclusion was that he said this, knowing it to be a lie, but to keep his committee positions after the Cheney example. So it is a lie calculated to submit to Trumpism.

Tourrorists.

u/RedditBeginAgain May 18 '21

To be fair though, if you've ever lived in an area popular with tourists that's exactly how locals would greet tourists if they could.

Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) said at a House oversight committee hearing that it was a “bald-faced lie” to call the riot an insurrection, adding that influx of rioters at the building resembled a “normal tourist visit.” Soon afterwards, a photo emerged showing him frantically barricading the House doors from a mob of rioters.

u/InuGhost May 18 '21

Odd way to.react to a bunch of "tourists".

u/Slabraton May 18 '21

Obviously this fool said what he did in order to "own the libs."

PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS.

u/lillithfair4 May 18 '21

To be fair, that's what I wish I could do with tourists in my area too.

u/zeiche May 18 '21

omg how could a republican be hypocritical?

u/engineeringsquirrel May 18 '21

Tourists, terrorists. Same thing.

u/netherite_shears May 18 '21

he should have given up and gotten mauled by them barging in.

u/NotAPreppie May 18 '21

I'm going to guess he's subconsciously completely re-written the events in his memory to suit the narrative that he so desperately clings to.

When confronted with the evidence, he'll probably say, "No, I'm talking about the real Americans. I was only barricading the door to keep the antifa terrorist traitors out."

u/WilliamJamesMyers May 18 '21

the GOP has a truth problem

u/Traffic_Spiral May 18 '21

So this is a "I voted for leopards after they tried to eat my face?" Nice.

Although in fairness, sometimes tourist be like that.

u/SplendidPunkinButter May 18 '21

We act like this is a gotcha, and yet this was already very obviously a riot
