1. Looks like its not real

Hand is much smaller than rest of her torso. Better recheck.

2. Marsha Blackburn is a white-winger

and, if I’m not mistaken, a “gift” to Tennessee from the anti-abortion movement and other white-wing culture warriors.

From Al Gore, Tennessee’s voters have fallen from Al Gore to Lamar Alexander to THIS.

My sympathy for voters who send the likes of Blackburn, Boebert, Greene, and others of their ilk to Congress and the Senate has almost disappeared. Voters who send the likes of her to Congress deserve what they get.

5. "Voters who send the likes of her to Congress deserve what they get."

But WE don't!

And it's idiots like this in Congress that are truly failing to do what their own 'Dear Leader' implored them to do: "Make America Great Again" - and Lord knows we have SO much work to do after THAT reign of terror....

8. I didn't vote for her. Blue staters don't realize what it's like

to have a senator like her. We should be so lucky to have a Manchin type as our senator-not that I'm a fan of him but he's better than the right wing MAGA robot we have.

9. MANY have burdens to bear.............

I'm in the state where Pat Toomey (R - Wall Street) was about 2 steps behind Lindsey Graham - but would always claim he 'wasn't like them' (meaning the MAGAts - ). But he continued to vote the 'tRump' line from top to bottom - and is now on his way back to his office on Wall Street - taking the rewards of his 4-years of work on behalf of the 1%.

Yes, we all have our 'burdens' - and we must ALL unite and work to rid our country of them - Manchin included!!!!!

3. Whether this photo is real or not (some are calling it not) she is beyond the pale.

What Blackburn said during the hearings was both absurd and racist. Yet she still retains her seat in Congress. We have so much to correct. If we can.

4. Snopes has determined this claim is "miscaptioned"

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/blackburn-white-power/

While the photograph is real, it was not taken during a hearing or vote on Jackson’s confirmation, and there’s no evidence that Blackburn was intentionally “throwing a white power sign” with her hand.


I don't dispute the fact that she's a racist, however.

6. That's a really weird way to hold your hand...unless it's intentional

10. I agree fully.

And she was doing so when a black member of the military was being questioned.

7. And I just read the snopes article

It's labeled "mischaracterized" because the picture was taken during a hearing with Defense Sec Austin, who also happens to be black. Strange way to hold one's hands, especially in that context
