Please, someone in Rep. Steve Cohen’s office, take his Twitter account away from him before he completely discredits himself and Tennessee’s 9th district.
This has been a banner twitter year for the Democrat, if you consider publicity from flubs a plus. Remember when he first caused a stir with this to a young blonde woman: “nice to know you were watchin SOTU(state of the union).Happy Valentines beautiful girl. ilu”.
He enjoyed the private joke on others, saying it wasn’t a hot chick, but his daughter. Then the joke turned out to be on him when we learned that DNA proved he wasn’t the father after all. Oops.
Then Politiwoops caught this one after a concert: “@cyndilauper great night,couldn’t believe how hot u were.see you again next Tuesday.try a little tenderness.” It’s a little unseemly for a Congressman to talk about “hot” in the context of sex. Cohen must get hot quite easily as it seems to be a frequent theme.
Then in July we had this one when he told an African American towdriver who picked up his car “father -DNA test not father reporter/ attractive fallout.he(not aware of TN9)says,You’re BLack! Yo”
He explained to an appalled MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski,
“It was fun. It was funny. I had a tough night. Here’s what happened: I drive an ‘86 Caddy. A lot of African-Americans drive old cars — a stereotype — a lot of African-Americans drive old cars,” Cohen said, telling the story of his car breaking down and the tow truck driver responding. “I’m having no luck. He drives me, we ditch the car, I come back and I tell him the story. … He goes, ‘Man, you’re black.’ And I took it was a compliment. I hear it in Memphis all the time. My constituents don’t look at me as a white person, they say, ‘You’re one of us.’”
Can you imagine the outrage if a Republican spoke like that?
Now, we have another misfire.
The Blaze reports:
Tennessee Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen appeared to imply in a tweet he sent out Monday evening that the National Rifle Association is partially to blame for the Washington Navy Yard shooting.
The tweet highlighted a political cartoon drawn by Bill Day, which depicts an AR-15 with the letters “NRA” stamped on the back and a symbol for the Washington Navy Yard featured in the scope. The cartoon also shows the U.S. Capitol building in the background and the Washington Monument.
Cohen said in his tweet that it showcased the “Horror, sadness & insanity of tragic #NavyYardShooting, depicted by one of our nation’s greatest #cartoonists, Bill Day.”
Too bad he was wrong about the gun. It wasn’t an assault rifle.
He’s wrong about Bill Day, too. The cartoonist is a hack who always had it out for conservatives/Republicans when he worked at The Commercial Appeal.
Maybe the Congressman’s staffers can quietly take away his twitter account before he does more damage.
