Axios’ morning email thingie reports that the quest to learn the secret identity of Sen. Tim Scott’s Hawt Canadian Lingerie Supermodel Girlfriend continues:
Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) — a 57-year-old bachelor under pressure from potential presidential backers to say more about his personal life — told evangelicals in Iowa last night that he’s dating “a lovely Christian girl.”
Asked onstage if there’s “any special lady” in his life, Scott replied: “I’m dating a lovely Christian girl,” according to Politico.
- “One of the things I love about the gospel of Jesus Christ is it points us always in the right direction. Proverbs 18:22 says: ‘He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
- Scott “knelt to the ground, asking the room to please pray for him before quickly rising with a big grin. The audience laughed,” per Politico.
The backstory: Axios’ Alex Thompson reported last month that top GOP donors were pushing Scott’s team for more detail about his bachelor status.
- Last week, the Washington Post’s Ben Terris wrote in a lengthy Style section feature that Scott’s “romantic endeavors aren’t a scandal so much as they are a mystery.”
This is, of course, sad that the Gawd Botherers are hounding this Black man for maybe not being straight, instead of hounding him for being a GOP standard-issue fascist. And really, who cares if he is anything other than straight? Look at his positions on issues: he’s still a fascist. The Republicans are not going to vote for him even if he does have a girlfriend.
