Aaron Schock's Staffer Resigns To Spend More Time Being Racist Jerk On Facebook

On Thursday, Think Progress posted a series of Facebook posts from Benjamin Cole, dreamy non-gay wingnut Aaron Schock's press secretary or spokesman or communications director or senior aide or senior communications aide spokesdirector or whatever his title is -- nobody seems to know for sure, wow, Schock and his staff sure like secrets, HUH?

Cole was being really gross and racist about loud people in his neighborhood who happened to be black people, saying they were like escaped animals from the National Zoo engaging in "mating rituals" out in the street near his house. He even added the hashtag #gentrifynow and #gentrifytoday in case his complaints were too subtle.

He also had some really nice things to say about President Obama, like how "they should build a mosque on the White House grounds" because "I just think it would be nice for the president to have his own house of worship, since he's not been able to find one suitable in DC since 2004 when he moved here."

This did not go over well with, um, anyone, so now Benjamin The Dumb is being exiled to the land of families and more time spent with them:

In a statement to the Peoria Journal Star, the Illinois GOP congressman called the remarks by communications aide Benjamin Cole "inexcusable and offensive."

"I would expect better from any member of my team," Schock added. "Upon learning about them I met with Mr. Cole and he offered his resignation which I have accepted."

Right, so that's gross. And we have to take one of those rare Wonkette moments to say that Aaron Schock (Aaron Schock Aaron Schock) did the Right Thing by "accepting" Cole's resignation, though he probably should have canned him earlier this week anyway, since old Benjamin is the completely inept communications guy who, upon being asked about Aaron Schock's Downton Gay-bbey themed office, queened out like "NO NO NO NO NO, you can't see it!", when a normal person in that position would be like, "sure, come on in, would you like some SCONES while you look at these SCONCES?"

But apparently Benjamin Cole is not a fan of giving office tours OR The Blacks, so see ya later, enjoy not giving tours to your white family and stuff. Now Aaron will have to get on Grindr and find himself a nice new press secretary aide director whatever to deal with the Downton Abbey office and the gay rumors and putting Aaron's shirtless selfies on Instagram. You know, Congress Stuff.

Hopefully, we can continue this trend of reporting on Aaron Schock EVERY DAY NOW tomorrow morning, I dunno, maybe he could make some sort of big announcement or something. Your Wonkette is listening, Aaron! Until then, Aaron Schock Aaron Schock Aaron Schock, the end.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
