This is really pretty abominable, even for Bachmann.
At a press conference Thursday, Boehner (R-Ohio) defended Huma Abedin, the deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.).You see, Huma is Muslim-American, so that means she must be working with the terrorists because she's, you know, a Muslim.
Boehner said he did not know Abedin well, but that “from everything that I know of her she has a sterling character. I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.”
Boehner is the latest high-profile GOP official to criticize the charges by Bachmann and four other GOP lawmakers that Abedin could be using her position at the State Department to aid the Muslim Brotherhood.
Bachmann shouldn't be serving on the Intelligence committee is she's this mentally unstable.
Andy Borowitz has a funny take on this in the New Yorker.
