Default Democrat Tom Malinowski Jokes about Withholding Coronavirus Disinfectant from Kentuck

Want Kentucky Senator and majority leader Mitch McConnell to pass bills you want? Just punish his constituents...

Democrat Tom Malinowski Jokes about Withholding Coronavirus Disinfectant from Kentuckians

Quote:
Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) reportedly said on Thursday that he has fantasized about holding up coronavirus disinfectant from Kentuckians to make Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) pass more Democrat measures.

Malinowski, a Democrat representing New Jersey’s seventh congressional district, said in a call that he would threaten McConnell by withholding Lysol for his constituents.

“Fun fact about Somerset County [New Jersey], we make 100 percent of the national supply of Lysol disinfectant,” he said in a video obtained by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). “I’ve thought about using with Mitch McConnell, like, ‘Hey, we’re going to hold up the Lysol for Kentucky until you pass her” bill.

“I see some thumbs up, but that’s a fantasy that I don’t think, it’s not going to work that way,” Malinowski said.

Malinowski’s comments follow the Senate Majority Leader moving to pass a small business extension to those who are suffering from the economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Democrats blocked the motion.

Even if this Democratic representative could, somehow, manage to withhold Lysol disinfectant from Kentuckians--and that is a big "if"--what real difference would it make?

There are, after all, other brands of disinfectant available (including Clorox disinfectant).

There are also some store brands (e.g. Great Value disinfectant, from Walmart).

Just who makes these store brands--could it be Lysol?--I really do not know.

But it certainly does not make Clorox disinfectant.

Not surprising. Authoritarian leftists don't just consider conservatives wrong on a particular public policy, leftists believe conservatives should be punished, persecuted and even die because of their policy positions.

This recent video shows just how disturbed leftists are; asked if they would extend the coronavirus epidemic and have many more people die just to be assured Trump loses, many people enthusiastically agree . . .

The implementation isn't practical but the sentiment is real. When the willingness to commit mass murder becomes inconvenient it's downplayed as humor.
