Move over Binky, Colon, Grampa Rob, and Ms. Leslie. There’s a new cheap-shot artist in town. (And he’s bringing along a spray tan and an annoying Yankee accent to boot!)
I don’t watch live driveby broadcasts anymore. I have caught this snide Yankee Jon Camp of ABC11 on streams of Marc Rotterman’s show. (He drones on through his nose like Chuck Schumer. It’s a sort of fly-buzzing-around-your-head-sound type of annoyance.)
THAT is the way to get to the essence of what’s happening in North Carolina — *dispatch a snide, know-it-all Yankee into flyover country with a camera and a microphone to teach the hillbillies a thing or two.* When Trump starts sending folks back to Mexico, he needs to fit in a deportation back to Jersey for this guy.
Here’s Jon-boy’s tweet about today’s press conference on the legislative districts ruling featuring Dallas Woodhouse and Bob Rucho:
I watched this thing live on Facebook. I heard Rucho arguing with a driveby offscreen about just this thing. Rucho made the following points:
- The press conference was about the federal court ruling, but this driveby (presumably Camp) wanted to babble about “court-packing.”
- Rucho said “court-packing” was never discussed in caucus. (Oh, and added no date has been set for a special session. )
- Rucho asked rhetorically why he should have to rule out something he never even had a discussion about.
*”Senator, can you rule out unequivocally ever beating your wife again?”*
The driveby (presumably Camp) continued to argue off-camera with Rucho. (I could make out what Rucho was saying, but not much of what the driveby was saying. The tone, though, came off as quite hostile and confrontational.) I wonder if Camp treats The Round Rev with the same level of, um, “courtesy”?
There was a lot of interesting stuff from Rucho about the court case and the legislature’s potential responses. But Camp, this Jersey-transplanted dingleberry, came away with THIS. I encourage you to look up the stream on Facebook if you can. You won’t get the facts about it on ABC11.
