Arizona Democrat Party chair Felecia Rotellini put her visceral partisanship and abysmal lack of knowledge on display (video: reporter Ryan Saavedra’s tweet*) during a panel discussion at the recent, “We the Voters Conference.” The Phoenix event was hosted by the Citizens Clean Elections Commission.
Rotellini, who obviously doesn’t watch FOX News, claimed President Trump, who earlier authorized the Syrian raid resulting in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “has aligned himself with ISIS.” When U.S. forces were closing in on him, the world’s most wanted man who led a movement that prided itself on mass murders, beheadings and indiscriminate violence, cowardly detonated a suicide vest intentionally killing himself and three of his own children.
Dr. Kelli Ward, AZ GOP chair, didn’t let Rotellini’s foolish, but intentional slur go without a response.
“It is extremely disconcerting to hear the top Democrat in Arizona slander and malign an innocent person for being aligned with the world’s most evil terrorists, let alone the president of the United States,” Ward said.
“While fear-mongering from the left is expected up to a point, we have to draw the line somewhere if they’re going to refuse to police themselves. Baseless statements like those made by the chair of the Arizona Democrats are wildly irresponsible and not rooted in reality.”
The local newspaper reports that Matt Grodsky, spokesman for the Arizona Democrat Party attempted to run interference for the party chair via email saying, “It was a poor choice of words.”
He might have had better luck sending a copy of Louis Prima‘s rendition of ‘Felicia No Capicia.’ (Capicia = comprehend in Italian.)
