Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) says all the consternation about Donald Sterling was just a plot to take our minds off — you guessed it — Benghazi!
According to Media Matters, West said that while Sterling may have said some reprehensible things, the scandal is just a distraction from what happened in the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
I’ll say this for him and the wingers: they’re consistent. Cliven Bundy? Distraction from Benghazi! Missing Malaysia jet? Distraction from Benghazi! The Red Wedding on Game of Thrones? Distraction from Benghazi!
Okay, I made the last one up, but you get the idea.
