Exchange of the Day


July 11, 2018 at 3:34 pm EDTBy Taegan Goddard

Sen. Angus King (I-ME) praised Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) for his work on the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to Knox VillageSoup:

KING: “Richard, that was a great press conference. You and Mark did a terrific job. It’s important for the American people to be together on this. Like they say in Hamilton, ‘History has it’s eyes on you.'”

BURR: “Angus, I don’t know if you want to quote Hamilton to me, since my great, great grandfather shot him.”

1. That is pretty wild

I never made the connection that he was related. Figures a GOPer would be related to one of the great villains.

I can't really talk. My wife does genealogy research and apparently I am descended from Benedict Arnold. Of course my wife is so pissed off with American political culture that she thinks the loyalists may have had the right idea.

2. I thought they were cousins? Distant - but only cousins.
