Thankfully, most of the responses were of this nature, but given the sad state of affairs in American politics (and decency), there were bound to be a few from the liberal peanut gallery.
It seems like your biggest joy is screwing the poor and middle classes.

Must be embarrassing to get saved by a gay, black cop? Guess you will change your mind on some basic human rights?

To which this guy had the perfect response:
Why would he be embarrassed? Steve Scalise has never had a problem with gays or black people. That is your projection problem. Seek help
