Just when you think that Republican officials can’t do anything more self-destructive to their own party, they prove that we have underestimated them. How did RNC Chairman Reince Priebus respond to this recent avalanche of bad GOP conduct, ranging from a congressman threatening to throw a reporter off a balcony to insensitive comments about women, gays, and blacks? Did he become outraged with the people who committed these wrongs?
Nope. Instead, he announced a boycott of MSNBC. Why? Because Priebus was allegedly upset over this MSNBC tweet: “Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family.”
