On Thursday Senate candidate Corey Stewart spoke on the grounds of the General Assembly to criticize House of Delegate members who voted for Medicaid expansion. His remarks included the following, from the Washington Post:
“I compare them to toilet paper,” he said, holding a roll aloft. “These are toilet paper Republicans. Just as soft, just as weak, just as pathetic, just as flimsy. Put a little bit of pressure on them and they crumble.”
“I’m suggesting I feel sorry for their wives,” he said. “They’re soft and pathetic.”
On Friday, on the floor of the House of Delegates, mild-mannered Delegate Glenn Davis (R-Virginia Beach) commented on Stewart’s remarks, receiving a stand ovation from the House of Delegates. It’s worth a watch.
