Darrell Issa is desperate, and a desperate Darrell shows just how hilariously dishonest he’s willing to be. Less than two weeks after trying to tie himself to President Obama, Issa is now claiming he’d have done Hillary Clinton the same dubious favor he’s done Donald Trump by signing on as a campaign adviser.
“I would’ve said the same thing if Hillary Clinton’s people had called me the same day. Why wouldn’t you?” Issa said in a recent interview here when asked about his decision to join Donald Trump’s campaign as a national security adviser.
Though Obama and probably the entire Democratic Party would beg to differ, Issa insists he’s always been a bipartisan kind of guy: “There’s also been a partisan side and a nonpartisan side,” he told POLITICO over breakfast one morning recently. “I’ve never changed.”
The “I would have said yes to Clinton, too,” excuse is a real convenient way to downplay his Trump ties, but how stupid does Issa think his district’s voters are? Mysteriously, the alleged nonpartisan side has only started coming out now that Issa is in a tight race, facing a serious threat from Democrat Doug Applegate. He did an especially great job keeping it hidden through his time grandstanding on the Oversight Committee, and he hasn’t let it slip in the years since.
Let's help Doug Applegate boot Darrell Issa's partisan side and his fictional nonpartisan side, too. Can you chip in $3?
