I honestly had no idea that was episode was what Cotton was talking about.
It is amazing, really. Whatever criminal mischief or malfeasance a MAGAT gets caught perpetrating, the GOP noise machine can find an equivalent instance of some liberal criminal mischief or malfeasance within 2 hours.
“Equivalent” is debatable but they can dilute all criminal activity and the media plays along very merrily. Trump could kill someone on 5th Ave and the media will run with, “Yeah, but remember when Obama killed that guy?”
