Michele Bachmann compares Barack Obama with Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz

Even by Michele Bachmann’s extraordinary standards of liberal-baiting or gaffe making – depending on your point of view – the Tea Party queen and former White House hopeful has surpassed herself.

In possibly her most offensive comments to date, the Republican politician has compared Barack Obama with Andreas Lubitz, the suicidal Germanwings co-pilot

“With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight – a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks,” she posted on her Facebook page as talks in Lausanne neared their climax.

“After the fact, among the smouldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?”

I don’t see what the problem is.
