Democrats complain all the time claiming Trump has brought our level of rhetoric to new lows without ever naming an instance that is not completely fabricated. However, it seems Democrats refuse to stop stooping to lows that no civilized human should reach in rhetoric.
During a House floor debate on abortion Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA) decided to call Republicans ‘sex starved males’ because they oppose abortion.
Torres stated, “Mr. Speaker, it is tiring to hear from so many sex-starved males on this floor talk about a woman’s right to choose.”
Republican Woodall objected, “Mr. Speaker, I would just like to ask my friend if she would like to change her last statement,
Torres responded, “Mr. Speaker, if it pleases my colleague on the other side, I will withdraw my statement about sex-starved males on the floor.”
Torres finished, “I will put it in different terms, it is tiring to be here on this floor or in committee as a woman — to continue to be counseled about what types of affordable — whether it is family planning conversations that rightfully I deserve to have with my own doctor, choosing when women want to have a family and to avoid pregnancies before they become pregnancies. It is unfortunate that, that is something that continues to be denied to American women day in and day out on this floor.”
The only problem is a study shows that Republicans have more sex than Democrats.
