Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on Understanding the Times with Jan Markell during the weekend to discuss the End Times and the Syrian refugee crisis, which is pretty normal stuff for Bachmann.
However, she crossed a line when she said Aylan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed up on a Turkish beach, actually came from a Turkish family who was trying to freeload off of European dental benefits.
“That was a terrible tragedy, but the fact is, that boy’s father and mother were in Turkey; they weren’t from Syria, they were from Turkey,” she said. “The father wanted European-style welfare benefits, he wanted for somebody to pay for the dental care for his kids.”
The kicker is when she said 2 out of 10 Syrian refugees are undercover ISIS militants.
