Mika Brzezinski: Our interview with Tim Huelskamp was ‘disturbing’


During a contentious interview on “Morning Joe” today, GOP Rep. Tim Huelskamp slammed Speaker Boehner’s leadership on the fiscal cliff negotiations and ripped gun-grabbers for politicizing the Sandy Hook massacre.

Rep. Huelskamp: ‘I disagree with John Boehner caving on taxes…He did that without the support of the conference, as we found out.’

Morning Joe just lost it. Kansas rep Huelskamp no ban on assault rifles.He says that the media and DC are politicizing the shooting!

Huelskamp was one of the conservatives ousted from the Budget Committee earlier this month.

As CNN contributor Erick Erickson noted last night:

From what I hear, Boehner probably shouldn’t have removed Tim Huelskamp from committees.Heh. #hero

Huelskamp was against Boehner’s “Plan B” measure and is staunchly opposed to tax increases.

Tim Huelskamp will vote against not only Boehner’s ‘Plan B’ but the sequester replacement bill as well, says it actually increases spending

Tim Huelskamp’s name was trending on Twitter this morning after Joe Scarborough exploded at the outspoken conservative’s remarks about politicizing the Connecticut tragedy:

Do you dare come on my show and say I am using the slaughter of 20 little six and seven-year-old children, I’m using that for political purposes, Tim?

In case it wasn’t clear which side of the issue Brzezinski is on, she also retweeted these tweets:

@morningmika Unbelievable. Huelskamp won’t make any of the hard decisions that it takes to govern. He’s a waste of space in Congress.

— Gerri Stone (@stoneski28) December 21, 2012

@morningmika That segment has to be used over and over again to get people to wake up! Hopefully.

@jolandamosley @winkster15 @morningmika @miaaculpa Interview with #Huelskamp: Most disturbing thing I have ever seen on TV in my entire life

— Greg M (@7wtc) December 21, 2012

@lovethe88 @morningmika that congressman is what is wrong with the GOP.

— Meredith Berlin (@meredithberlin) December 21, 2012

Because nothing says “I’m interested in fruitful, civil debate” like calling your opponents “abject morons.”

The progressive Twittersphere joined Brzezinski in making it clear that Huelskamp is ticking off all the right people.

Tim Huelskamp is an asshole.

— Anne C. Savage (@Anne_Savage) December 21, 2012

Tim Huelskamp R Kan on #morningjoe demonstrating how utterly stupid and morally bankrupt are the Repugnicant party and its members.

— Jeff Seale (@docstymie) December 21, 2012

Tim Huelskamp wants to go down with the GOP ship with the NRA and with his Koch billionaire backers. What a piece of shit.

— Jeff Gauvin (@JeffersonObama) December 21, 2012

— C.E.O (@Fresh3rthanU) December 21, 2012

Looks like those “national conversations” about gun violence and fiscal sanity are coming along swimmingly.
