Cuckoo Human Looney-Toon Michele Bachmann R-Minnesota, she of the "crazy eyes," believes that President Obama should be Impeached. She also thinks he is "lawless" like a runaway slave and needs punishment -- so put him in handcuffs! Yes, handcuffs! Why? Because he dared to give children of illegal immigrants, known as "Dreamers," the right not to be deported. What a horrible crime! Impeach!
This all happened as the GOP-led House of Representatives took their last stand before summer vacation by passing a bill the Senate will never pass, and the President will never sign.
But Michele never lets a lost cause stop her. And this gave her a chance for a dog whistle to the Tea Party as well.
From Roll Call
The Minnesota Republican made the figurative remark while speaking on the floor during debate on legislation ending the president’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program granting deportation relief and work permits to some children brought to the United States illegally by their parents. The legislation also would prohibit President Barack Obama from expanding the program to other illegal immigrants as the president reportedly is considering whether to expand the program to as many as 5 million people.
Bachmann said House passage of the bill would “put a handcuff on one of the president’s hands” and said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., should bring the Senate back and pass the bill.
“He needs to put the other handcuff on this lawless president’s hands,” she said as she grabbed one of her wrists.
David Cicilline, D-Rhode Island, objected to the language and tried to have the remarks stricken from the record, but was told the request was not "timely."
“Mr. CICILLINE. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to strike from the Congressional Record the words of the gentlewoman from Minnesota who described placing a handcuff on one hand of the President’s—-
Mr. ROYCE. Mr. Speaker, I object as the request is not timely.
Mr. CICILLINE. Mr. Speaker, a point of order.
Excuse me. May I finish my unanimous consent request? Thank you.
She in one moment described putting one handcuff on one hand of the President’s and a second handcuff on the second hand of the President’s and handcuffing the lawless President of the United States.
Those are words which are not appropriate in the Congressional Record. I ask unanimous consent that they be stricken. Impugning the character and integrity of the President of the United States is a clear violation of the rules of this House.
The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the request of the gentleman from Rhode Island?
Mr. ROYCE. Mr. Speaker, I do object. The request is not timely.
Bachmann has also accused the "lawless" President of being some sort of wicked Dr. Frankenstein, wanting to perform some strange medical experiments on immigrant children who are coming across the border with Mexico. Yeah, right - it's Obama who hates those children and wants them to suffer, not the Right-Wingers screaming at them, or the Militia folks shooting at them.
Bachmann can't seem to make up her mind whether she hates these children or wants to protect them.

This entire narrative is based on a bizarre misreading of the hospital's policy for allowing Wards of the state to participate in medical research trials, which is actually designed to protect such wards. The fact that Wards of the state can participate in medical trials under certain conditions and within specific guidelines is being intentionally misrepresented by Bachmann and others on the Right to claim that foster children are being used for wild medical experiments funded by grants from the federal government without oversight or limits.
. . . "Now President Obama is trying to bring all of those foreign nationals, those illegal aliens to the country and he has said that he will put them in the foster care system," Bachmann said. "That's more kids that you can see how - we can't imagine doing this.
But if you have a hospital and they are going to get millions of dollars in government grants if they can conduct medical research on somebody, and a Ward of the state can't say 'no,' a little kid can't say 'no' if they're a Ward of the state; so here you could have this institution getting millions of dollars from our government to do medical experimentation and a kid can't even say 'no.' It's sick".

House GOP to solve the border crisis by deporting everyone darker than Michele Bachmann, so now Obama must self-deport or face impeachment.
