Harry Reid made a wild claim with no evidence and accused Mitt Romney of being a felon. His evidence? A call he got to the office. That’s it. He then doubled down by saying that ‘the word is out there - Mitt has to prove he paid taxes’. It’s such a pathetic and false attack it’s a wonder how Harry Reid lives with himself.
Here is Reid's statement on Romney's taxes:
"The word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years. Let him prove that he has paid them. Where is the proof that he has paid taxes? The one partial tax return shows that he has money hidden in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, in a Swiss bank account."
Writers note: If Romney released the tax return to the public that showed the accounts he holds his money in …how exactly is that "hidden"? Curious minds want to know, Harry Reid…
"I'm not making that up. That's in the partial year that he gave us. Mitt Romney makes more money in a single day than the average class family makes in two years."
That last line ia about the only thing that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wasn't making up in his statements.
Just as Glenn was about to get worked up about the Majority Leader's completely unAmerican comments, an "anonymous" call came in (from someone who sounded a LOT like Stu) with their own idiotic, baseless claims…
CALLER: I have information.
GLENN: You have information you want to share with me? What is it?
VOICE: About Harry Reid.
GLENN: About Harry Reid?
VOICE: Yes. I can't tell you exactly how I know this.
VOICE: But Harry Reid is a pedophile rapist.
GLENN: He's a pedophile rapist?
GLENN: Wow. I mean, if somebody came before Congress and wanted to be a -- you know, somebody wanted to be a, you know, a cabinet member, you couldn't be a pedophile rapist. How long has he been a pedophile rapist?
VOICE: Approximately 25 years.
GLENN: 25 years.
VOICE: Now, I should be -- I just wanted to be clear. He is not a pedophile. He's a pedophile rapist, meaning that he's raping pedophiles.
GLENN: He's raping pedophiles?
VOICE: Right. He's a pedophile rapist. He's not a pedophile. I'm definitely not accusing him of that.
VOICE: But I am saying that he is a pedophile rapist.
GLENN: All right. Okay. Thank you very much for your phone call. Appreciate it.
After Glenn shared the (disturbing and baseless) claim from
Stu the caller that Harry Reid is allegedly a pedophile rapist, Pat obviously wanted to know the facts of the situation. After all, only an idiot would take seriously anything an anonymous sourced with no facts and then share the information with the public.
Glenn decided to go with it. After all, he was just using Harry Reid's own standards (i.e. reporting a baseless and idiotic claim as actual fact in front of the American people).
"So, Harry Reid should answer the charge of being a pedophile rapist. We don't know. And, you know, Harry, I don't know anything about your father. So, I have no idea, you know, whether he would be ashamed or embarrassed by you right now, but for the Senate majority leader to crawl through filth like this, the nation you serve is ashamed of you. We're embarrassed by you and ashamed of you."
Just as Glenn was wrapping up, another call came through. From
Stu the anonymous caller again with EVEN MORE baseless and ridiculous accusations.
"He is a pedophile too,"
Stu the caller said. "Now, that's in addition to the pedophile rapist stuff. So, the way I understand it is that he's raping the pedophiles but the pedophilia is consensual."
While most might believe this was just a obvious joke to prove how insane Reid's claims on Romney's taxes are, by Harry Reid's own standards we can't be sure.
Sure, there's absolutely ZERO evidence that would ever, in a million years, lead someone to believe that Harry Reid has been a pedophile rapist AND a pedophile for 25 years, but it's out there now.
Harry Reid, live by your own standards and tell America the truth about these allegations.
Until then, we'll just have to accept it as truth until he proves otherwise. Because, in Harry Reid's America, that's how our system works.
