Rep. Kevin Cramer, the Republican challenging Sen. Heidi Heitkamp this fall in North Dakota, compared voting against President Donald Trump in Congress to cheating on a spouse. Cramer’s comment criticizing Heitkamp’s voting record came in a Wednesday radio interview with conservative North Dakota host Scott Hennen.
“Here’s the good news about Donald Trump: Most of the time, he’s for North Dakota, and that’s my point where I’ve heard her say, ‘Gee, I voted with him 55% of the time,'” Cramer said. “Can you imagine going home and telling your wife, ‘I’ve been faithful to you 55% of the time?’ Are you kidding me? Being wrong half the time is not a good answer.”
Cramer’s analogy has been met with ridicule considering Trump’s infamous history of adultery.
RELATED: Cramer last appeared on JMG in early 2017 when he mocked female Democrats for wearing white pantsuits to a Trump speech. Cramer said, “There is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird.” Cramer basically opposes civil rights for everybody except white Christian men and is known to quote scripture in his rants against food stamps.
