Seems he handled it just fine...by lying through his hypocritical teeth.

It's because Bill Gates doesn't hang out with dipshiats.

So a lying liar lies, and isn't immediately called out (literally) as a liar.

This is a good thing? F**ker should be told verbally beaten, and called a liar to his face, during the interview.

It's difficult to call him a liar, because he said a lot of words without really making a point. The only really thing he said is "we need to do better," which is true.

Outside of that, it was empty. It's something I knew beforehand, but was reinforced in my college philosophy classes. There's no name for it, but it's basically saying a lot of words, but not actually making a point. Republicans are very good at it, they're bloviating in front of a camera without actually having any meaning.

He looks like he was chosen just because they couldn't find any non-white ancestors in his history, going back ten thousand years.

Symbolic logic solves a lot of that, great for cutting out dead wood from a conversation. Idiots like this can spend hours saying nothing, and say it so much you don't even notice.

However it's lying by omission as the good Father (Priest) would say in Sunday school. Just because you dodge talking about a specific item to avoid directly lying, well, you're still going to burn in Hell sinner.

In his defense the GOP only supports the "right to life" of the zygotes; they make zero promises about said quality of that life once born and is actually a living human. They they find dehumanizing labels to deny any improvement to the quality of life for that child. Born to a minority, then it becomes a welfare baby. Born to an immigrant, the child becomes an "illegal" out to "murder and rape" people. Born to an unwed mother, well that kid is a bastard and God's punishment to the mother for being a whore.

It is kind of like how the Nazi's did not just kill Jewish people, they made sure they suffered and were as dehumanized as possible first. They don't want people who are down and out remain down and out, they want it to be as suffering and harsh as possible. They just don't want to deport undocumented immigrants, they want to make them suffer, take their kids, put both in separate camps where they are kept in squalor. Same with crime, they don't want to rehabilitate anyone, just make their lives as "rock bottom" as possible. This is the real ideological gap between the right and left.

Jake Tapper's line of questioning revealed that Republicans don't care about children once they are born.

Revealed? We've known that for decades.

Yeah in his answer he is far more of a bullshiatter than an out and out liar. He's engaged in the Gish Gallop to try to evade the question. It usually works in the moment and it is only afterwards that the bullshiatter can get called on his bullshiat.

He didn't exactly lie.  If you break it down he says that Mississippi is indeed farked, that he wants to unfark it, he has thus far failed, but things are better than 200 years ago.  He implies that Mississippi culture shouldn't change so he'll continue to hunt elephants in Greenland.

They don't care about them before they're born either, only that they aren't aborted. If they truly did then they'd support providing universal prenatal care. Regardless of what they may say, their true motive is prevent women from being anything more than brood mares to pump out little soldiers for Jesus.
 
2021-12-06 6:33:07 AM  
I heard this Governor on some right wing radio show a while back, and he was bragging that his pro-life agenda was helping his state in so many ways. The example he used is that more people in Mississippi are reading at a 4th grade level than ever before.
 
2021-12-06 6:36:48 AM  
What do you have to do to fail as hard as Mississippi?  You have to actively try to be a failure, right?  It's a series of active choices made by someone and not just apathy, though that also helps.

So the obvious follow up would be to ask, "ok, so tell me what concrete steps you've taken to do better for children once they're born. Tell me about the policies you've spearheaded to combat infant mortality."

And don't give quarter. When he inevitably tries to circle back to abortion, interrupt and steer him back to the question of infant mortality until he either concedes the answer is "nothing," or he storms out.

Came here to say something like this. As long as there's a baby in the womb, it could be born with no head or six eyes for all they care. "Human" is an abstract term meaning only "not any other species".

It's actually worse than that.  They just deny reality, or as Adam Savage said: "I deny your reality and choose to replace it with one of my own."

I just wish someone would call these assholes out on how they supposedly are such devout followers of the Bible, but regularly bear false witness (lie) on a regular basis.

Reeves basically deflects by saying he's only been in office a year and a half, and that a historical problem is not his fault.

Cowardice of that answer aside, did Tapper then follow up by pointing out infant mortality has actually gone UP during his tenure? Or, when the single best way to bring infant mortality down is to increase Healthcare access for poor women, why Reeves keeps refusing Medicaid expansion?

I'm sick of these sensational "so and so DESTROYS so and so." This isn't even barely competent jourmalism.
