Noted whackadoodle and former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann may be best known for her crazy antics and far right Christian evangelical positions, but now she has a new gig. Bachmann, a former presidential candidate herself, is now advising Donald Trump on foreign policy.
Bachmann, notorious for her exaggerated and nonsensical ravings about Muslims and LGBT people, is a perfect match for Trump’s brand of Islamophobia. She also told Minnesota Public Radio that she’s counseling the GOP nominee on issues of interest to Christian conservatives.
“He also recognizes there is a threat around the world, not just here in Minnesota, of radical Islam,” she said after a high dollar fundraiser in the state. “I wish our President Obama also understood the threat of radical Islam and took it seriously.”
While other Republican politicians skipped the Trump party in favor of washing their hair or polishing their shoes, Bachmann was front and center. With Trump’s campaign now led by blatant racists and hillbillies, Bachmann couldn’t possibly have found a more welcoming (and appropriate) home.
