Gutfeld: Texas Dems’ Super-Spreader Tour Makes Them Look More Like Fred Flintstone Than Frederick Douglass


The Texas State Democratic delegation that fled Austin for the District of Columbia to deprive the state legislature of a quorum to vote on election integrity legislation looks less like Republican abolitionist Frederick Douglass – to whom Vice President Harris compared them – and more to Fred Flintstone, Greg Gutfeld noted Monday on “The Five.”

Gutfeld said the outing went from a self-proclaimed historic occasion to a “Super-Spreader Tower” after three fully vaccinated Democrats tested positive for COVID-19 in Washington, shortly after meeting with officials like Harris and the majority leader in the Senate. Charles Schumer of New York.

An unidentified member tested positive on Friday but was asymptomatic, while another, state representative Celia Israel, D-Travis, said in a statement that she had mild symptoms and would be put on in quarantine pending further testing. A third also tested positive on Saturday.

That number then rose to five positive tests on Monday, Gutfeld reported.

During the Texans’ encounter with Harris, she called the group “brave” and compared them to Douglass, a runaway slave, scholar and prominent Republican figure of the second half of the 19th century.

“The Democrats’ voting stunt is now turning into a super broadcast tour. It sounds like fun. But the media is nowhere to be found,” Gutfeld said.

Gutfeld postulated that if the parties were reversed and it was a Republican delegation fleeing to Washington and testing positive after meeting federal officials, they would be pilloried as potential murderers and general dangers to the community. society.

“There is no widespread outrage, condemnation or even claim that these Democrats are going to slaughter Americans.”

On “The Five,” Gutfeld added that the ordeal essentially made the delegation stupid, noting that Harris equated them with Douglass:

“What’s great about these Democrats, they thought they were Frederick Douglass but they looked more like Fred Flintstone,” he said. “They really turned into a cartoonish take on what they thought they were going to be.”

Speaking in Alexandria, Va. On Friday, Texas State Representative Senfronia Thompson, D-Harris said her caucus “refused[s] being a hostage “and compared Texas officials threatening his arrest to the act of arresting escaped slaves in the 19th century.

“I am ready to be arrested,” she said. “What do you do to a slave if you do nothing but stop him when he runs away?” “

“The Five” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added that Harris warned Americans to quarantine if exposed to the coronavirus, but stressed that she met the Texas delegation on Tuesday and that she had not done so yet:

“When asked by the media if you were going to quarantine, her spokesperson said she didn’t need to,” she said, then citing a Trafalgar Group investigation showing that the The vice president’s public endorsement continued to grow, with 43% of Democratic respondents saying she is not ready to be president.

Earhardt also noted Harris’ Sunday visit to Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Although no explicit link was made between the two situations, Earhardt said it was strange for someone to have a “routine check-up” with their GP on a Sunday.

She went on to note other questionable dynamics regarding the Texans’ travel, as a lawmaker decried their alleged difficulty in having to wash in a hotel sink, posting a photo of laundry hanging in the bathroom. bath; while the entire delegation appeared to be maskless on their private charter to Dulles International Airport, despite FAA regulations imposed by Biden and contrary political urges from the left.


“They say sacrifices when they have to wash and hang their wet clothes, sometimes their underwear, in bathrooms, and they tweet about it,” she said.

Gov. Gregory Abbott, a Republican, warned Democrats would be arrested on their return to Texas, telling Austin affiliate ABC he had the power to detain them and have them “shed in the Texas Capitol. “until they fulfill their legislative functions.
