Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith got all titillated the other day when she thought about sitting in the front row of a public hanging. In the context of her race to be Senator of Mississippi. Which is the state in which the most recent well known lynchings took place, and that probably had more lynchings per capita than any other state. Her opponent, Mike Epsy, is a black man.
Hyde-Smith has a 100% Trumpian voting record, and she is in fact the only Republican Senator with a perfect record. She is a strong NRA supporter, and the ACLU gives her a zero rating.
Here is the public hanging remark:
"If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row"- Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith says in Tupelo, MS after Colin Hutchinson, cattle rancher, praises her.
