RNC Chairman Thinks the 'War on Women' is Fictitious, Compares it to a 'War on Caterpillars'

Republican National Committee chairman, Reince Priebus, has some explaining to do. It's a sad fact, but quite frankly, we're used to hearing politicians say politically-incorrect things, not even just those from the conservative right wing. But this is kind of a stretch.

During an interview with Bloomberg TV, Priebus commented that the whole idea there is a "war on women" - AKA, female outrage over the possibility that rights concerning women's health may be restricted under new legislations - is preposterous. Then, he compares it to a "war on caterpillars."

"If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every mainstream media outlet talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we'd have problems with caterpillars. It's a fiction."

Yes, that is verbatim. And no, as Jezebel points out, he was not drunk as he said it.

Politics: Making sense since never.
