“He’s getting elected to the Senate. When he gets to the Senate, he’s going to have to vote on things. And slavery’s not going to be voted on in the Senate, and it’s not — neither is homosexuality. And here’s the thing. Let’s be clear because it’s such a slur against him. What he said was families still loved each other when they existed. People in bondage, when the Jews were in bondage for years, they still loved each other.” – Right wing CNN commentator Ed Martin, dropping jaws on Twitter.
@KateBolduan I’m so offended that @EagleEdMartin just defended #slavery & # holocaust in his disgusting defence of pedophile Roy Moore. @angela_rye @CNN Fire Ed Martin now. As a loyal viewer. I Demand His Resignation.

Ed Martin this morning: “Slavery’s not going to be voted on in the Senate.”
Ed Martin this afternoon, probably: “Now that I think of it, child molestation probably won’t be voted on either, no worries.”
