Mary Lou Bruner the GOP candidate for the Texas State Board of Education has been outspoken in her criticism of President Obama. All well and good, until it crosses the line to utter insanity. Late last year, Bruner posted the claim on her Facebook page that Obama worked as a gay prostitute in his 20’s to earn cash for his drug habit.
After the ridicule and scorn heaped on her ignorant shoulders from the national press, you might think Bruner would back down or at least make some attempt to back up her claims with some of those things called “facts.” She is supposedly interested in education after all. But no. In an interview with KERA in Denton, Bruner went all in.
“If he’s on drugs, then how did he pay for them?” she told KERA. “There’s two ways that people on welfare pay for drugs — they prostitute themselves or they steal.”
So our President was either a prostitute or a thief. This is the kind of lunacy the Tea Party has wrought. And this is the person that will be sitting on the State Board of Education setting policies and approving textbooks to guide our young students. It’s almost, but not quite, as frightening as growing prospect of a Cruz presidency.
