Audio: Ed Gillespie Goes Full Donald Trump/Corey Stewart on DREAMers

Ed Gillespie’s xenophobic, nasty, racist approach (as expressed on right-wing talk radio, audio below) might appeal to hardcore supporters of Donald Trump and/or Corey “Trump before he was Trump” Stewart, but other than that, it seems to me that this is a huge loser politically (not to mention morally) for Gillespie. First of all, quoting far-right wingnut Sen. Tom Cotton is not exactly encouraging. Second, and much worse, comparing DREAMers to someone who committed a “brutal murder here in Northern Virginia” (and “who was brought here as a child illegally”) is beyond repulsive (note: 99.99% of DREAMers are achievers, scholars, workers, etc — NOT criminals!). Third, just don’t vote for this crap in November — that is, if you want a Virginia that’s open, welcoming and prosperous as opposed to one that’s closed, bigoted and economically failing.
