TV Star gets lambasted for saying something sorta nice about Republicans

A TV Star from the show ‘Queer Eye’ said something sorta ‘nice’ about Republicans on his Twitter account yesterday. Here’s what happened, via The Wrap.

At first Jonathan Van Ness simply tweeted that he thought the chances for Democrats to win the House and Senate back would be better if they could find some ‘center left’ Democrats to run against the ‘extreme’ Republicans:

Well that was quickly met with opposition:

Ironically, we’ve made similar arguments about Republicans, saying we want principled Republicans and not mushy milktoast RINOs.

Someone else replied:

So Ness hit back:

Wow, how generous of him to say that not ALL Republicans are racist. I guess that’s saying something ‘nice’ coming from the left.

And then came the onslaught:

I could go on, but you get the idea.

To his credit, he didn’t back down from his original position:

Actually I think compromise is exactly what got us into all this mess. If Republicans actually stood up for their principles and refused to keep compromising with the left, we’d be in much better shape. I mean, why do you think Democrats won back the House and Senate in 2007? Because Republicans lost their way and people got sick of it.

They still hadn’t found their way back, so now we have Trump. And things are only moderately starting to improve.
