North Carolina state Senator Bob Rucho continues to struggle with this fact to this day despite having already made a fool of himself twice over it.
Last week, Rucho took to his Twitter account to share the following comment:
Justice Robert's pen & Obamacare has done more damage to the USA then the swords of the Nazis,Soviets & terrorists combined.
Needless to say, the response from Twitter was generally negative, with particular attention being given to the fact that Justice Roberts and the Affordable Care Act have yet to kill off hundreds of thousands of Americans.
In response to the backlash, Rucho tweeted the following:
Those that tweeted, put your thinking caps back on:"The PEN is mightier than the SWORD."Edward Bulwar-Lytton,1839. But surely you knew that.
Back in reality, the only thinking caps needed will be to determine what the hell Rucho was thinking when he said that.
I'll save you some time: He wasn't thinking at all.
