Like too many Republican senators, Missouri’s Roy Blunt says he won’t talk to President Barack Obama’s choice for the U.S. Supreme Court.
But the excuse Blunt offered for not speaking to Merrick Garland was, shall we say, stupid.
Never miss a local story.
After that statement Wednesday, Twitter went to school on Blunt.
Let’s start with Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, who’s seeking to be Blunt’s opponent this fall. Kander is an Afghanistan war veteran.
Plenty of other people weren’t buying Blunt’s excuse. Some were definitely not amused. Others used a little humor to attack Blunt.
