So the other day a Tennessee Republican told a frightened 11 year old girl that her father was going to be deported, sorry not sorry! Yeah, that actually happened.

From The Daily Kos (via Twitter):

A very frightened, 11 year old little girl conjured up the courage to ask her Congressman, Republican Scott DesJarlais, a question at the Murfreesboro,TN town hall meeting he was hosting on Thursday evening. Josie Melina spoke into the microphone with a quivering voice. She introduced herself to the crowd and said, “œMr. DesJarlais, I have papers, but I have a dad who’™s undocumented. What can I do to have him stay with me?” She was so scared, her question was barely audible (despite the microphone), so she had to repeat the question. Only one or two people can be heard clapping in support of this brave girl. That, in and of itself is shocking — to think that grown-ups wouldn’t support a young child in such an intimidating situation by applauding her courage…but, no. The crowd, consisting mostly of Tea Party Republicans, didn’t applaud. At least, not until the Congressman gave his bully response.

After graciously thanking the young lady for her question, Congressman DesJarlais coldly replied, “The answer still kind of remains the same, that we have laws and we need to follow those laws and that’s where we’™re at.” The crowd erupted in cheers and applause.

There's also video is you want to see a little girl with a shaking voice hear sick fucks applaud the fact that her father is going to be deported. Outstanding job, GOP!

DesJarlais is no stranger to scandal. There are concerns he could lose his seat (oh noes!) and admitted under oath to having eight affairs, demanding one of those women get an abortion and threatening his first wife with a loaded gun. FAMILY VALUES!

The young girl is currently in therapy to deal with the anxiety of losing her father. I'm sure having a crowd of compassionless Tea Party sycophants applaud and cheer for his deportation really helped.
