Last week was not a good week for Gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart. He made national news getting into arguments with musician John Legend and David Simon, creator of “The Wire”. From the Corey Stewart’s Twitter, April 24th:
Stewart responds saying these celebrities who attack him are just like ISIS:
Corey then attacks John Legend, comparing him to Senator Joe McCarthy in the 1950’s:
Corey previously said some politicians are just like ISIS. Such an absurd comparison. How many politicians have tortured people, cut off heads, and burned people alive? Stewart needs to stop the ISIS comparisons.
Stewart has also vowed to make the city of Charlottesville buy back their stature of Robert E. Lee if they sell it. It’s not clear how a Governor could do that. More on that story here.
