Michele Bachmann doesn’t normally talk about police shootings…except when the officer is Muslim. Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich, and Mark Thompson, the hosts of The Young Turks, show you her speech. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. Watch the video from Alpha News here: http://alphanewsmn.com/republican-gubernatorial-forum-livestream/
“The guest of honor at Wednesday night’s Eighth Annual Hog Roast and Republican gubernatorial forum in Waconia wasn’t any of the state’s many gubernatorial candidates.
It was former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, the event’s featured speaker.
Bachmann paid no mind to the 30 minutes initially allotted for her speech. “I understand I get 3½ hours to speak to you,” she joked after taking the stage at the Waconia American Legion. “And that’s just my introduction.”
No one in the crowd of about 100, which listened intently to her 45-minute speech, appeared to mind. “You don’t cut Michele off,” said Frank Long of the Carver County Conservative PAC, which organized the forum.
Bachmann, one of the most outspoken figures in American politics in the past decade, lately had moved away from the spotlight. She said she travels around the world speaking and serves on an advisory board on faith issues for President Donald Trump.
So she took Wednesday’s opportunity to go long, sharing her thoughts on everything from Minnesota’s educational system to its treatment of refugees to her own interactions with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
“These are two of the most normal, regular, everyday, average people,” Bachmann said early in her speech. “And one of them is a multimillionaire.”
Trump, she said, “has 1950s sensibilities. Which is a great decade.”
She then zeroed in on the issues she believes the GOP should tackle in the upcoming election cycle.”
