During last night’s debate in Indiana, incumbent Dem Senator Joe Donnelly raised more than a few eyebrows with some” odd wording” while attempting to praise some of his staffers.
” Our regime chairman is Indian American, but he does an amazing task ,” said here senator 😛 TAGEND
Some odd phrasing from @SenDonnelly attempting to highlight the diversity of his staff 😛 TAGEND
“Our state director is Indian American, but he does an amazing job.” #INSEN

What’s with the “but”? He then exerted the same construction to talk about an African American staffer 😛 TAGEND
Followed up with: “Our director of all ingredient services, she’s African American. But she does an even more extraordinary chore than you could ever imagine.” https :// t.co/ xVttn2xohW

And it’s not just us. Colby Itkowitz from the Washington Post’s Fix blog writes 😛 TAGEND
These are the things Veep writer’s reverie are made of — hue deafen explanations likely intended well, but totally offensive.
And Fox News’ Bret Baier asks the question 😛 TAGEND
Hmmm. “…but she does a great job”. Will that get attention in this environment? https :// t.co/ r6giskG3dD

And here’s the answer 😛 TAGEND
Can we just be honest and say that if Mike Braun had said this it would be an issue but it won’t because Donnelly is a Dem?
