Dana Loesch Sounds Off on Liberal Author Celebrating Train Crash Involving Republicans
'Is this the state of our political discourse?'
In one such example, Jonathan Tasini - a onetime campaign surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders - joked that "God is working hard today to clean up the stink" after the train struck a dump truck carrying trash.
Tasini, who also writes for CNN, later deleted the tweet, and attempted to explain it with another tweet:
Apologies people. It was poked out in midst of convo w 2 colleagues on the deep racism/hypocrisy/criminality promoted by GOP or as GOPer Amanda Carpenter says, gaslighting of America . Deleting.

The collision left one person dead in the truck and some members of Congress were treated for minor injuries, including possible concussions.
Loesch, a national radio host and author, noted that many other people on Twitter were joking about the crash.
A trainload of Republicans on their way to a pricey retreat hit a garbage truck. My friend Russ calls that karma.

"Aren't these the same people, by the way, who are constantly complaining about the state of political discourse?" she asked.
Loesch also sounded off on Rep. Maxine Waters' (D-Calif.) response to the State of the Union and Democrats playing games on their cell phones during the speech.
"They're terrified because the economy is doing well," she said, adding that Democrats like Waters have no counter-arguments except to call Trump a racist.
