Welcome to RantCrush Top 5, where we take you through today’s top five controversial stories in the world of law and policy. Who’s ranting and raving right now? Check it out below:
Yesterday, Republican Representative Kevin Cramer of North Dakota criticized the Democratic women who wore white to Trump’s speech on Tuesday for being “poorly dressed.” When attending a radio town hall, a constituent said to Cramer that he thought the Democrats should cooperate with the Republicans, even though Republicans didn’t work with President Obama. Though Cramer agreed, he bizarrely brought up the Democratic female politicians’ clothing choices and said that several of them were poorly dressed. Then he said, “It is a syndrome. There is no question, 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.” But Mr. Cramer, that quote was also pretty weird.
