Republican Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia recently appeared on the Lou Dobbs show and lat Democrats have it.
He accused them of loving terrorists because after all, that’s what their recent behavior over Iran suggests.

Do Democrats love terrorists? According to this prominent Republican, they do
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley raised eyebrows earlier this week when she told Fox News that Democrats were the only ones “mourning” the death of top Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani.
Georgia Republican Doug Collins took it up a notch Wednesday night:
‘They’re in love with terrorists… They mourn Soleimani more than they mourn our Gold Star families who are the ones who suffered under Soleimani.’
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs clearly didn’t have a problem with that hot take from Collins, as you can see from the interview:

Some people on the left are freaking out about this.

‘Stop this nonsense’: GOP Rep. Doug Collins slammed for claim that Democrats are ‘in love with terrorists’
Rep. Doug Collins drew sharp criticism after he accused Democrats of being “in love with terrorists” and mourning the death of an Iranian general more than empathizing with the families of fallen U.S. service members because they questioned President Donald Trump’s handling of the crisis with Iran.
“I understand politics and sharp rhetoric. I worked in the Senate for four years,” former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in response. “But Collins declaring Democrats ‘are in love with terrorists’ is an abomination, a step beyond. Pathetic.”
The Georgia Republican made the comment Wednesday night during a discussion with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs about escalating tensions with Iran and Democrats’ proposed legislation to require Trump to get congressional approval before taking further military action against Iran.
What Democrats don’t seem to realize is that everyone has been able to see and hear them for the last several days.
They have bent over backwards to defend Soleimani and to smear Trump.
What are people supposed to think?
