In the running for stupidest Democrat ever?
Via Daily Wire:
A Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives in Colorado with a novel solution for stopping school shootings decided to show exactly how it would work — on himself, in one of the most unintentionally hilarious ads ever put on social media.
Levi Tillemann, running against Jason Crow in the June 26 Democratic primary for the right to square off against incumbent GOP Rep. Mike Coffman, believes the best way to stop school shootings is to arm schools and teachers — with pepper spray.
Thus, in his attempt to show how effective such a strategy would be, Tilleman intentionally had himself pepper-sprayed in the campaign ad, putting himself in tremendous, swollen-eyed pain.
Tilleman begins by stating, “Washington needs more doers and innovators. That’s why I’m running for U.S. Congress. I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new.”
So far, so good. He continues, “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools.” (He reaches for something off-screen) “Like this can of pepper spray.”
