Skip to comments.Sen. Joe Donnelly says he has black and Indian American staffers, ‘but’ they’re terrific

Sen. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), a conservative Democrat in one of the tightest reelection battles in the country, made a cringeworthy and puzzling statement about some minorities on his staff during a debate Tuesday night.
To begin, heres a quick vocab refresher. The definition of the word but, according to Google, is to introduce something contrasting with what has already been mentioned."
So it was strange when Donnelly, in what seemed like a genuine effort to compliment his aides, said this when asked how he would bring diversity into his staffing:
Our state director is Indian American, but he does an amazing job. Our director of all constituent services, shes African American, but she does an even more incredible job than you could ever imagine.
Mr. Senator, but, what?

Those are TWO BIG BUTS!! Donelly is DONE!
And I bet they never get uppity!
I am surprised that the ComPost printed this.
I would have thought the Ministry of Propaganda would cover for him.
Conservative Democrats are a myth.
Compost throwing him under the bus, but they remind you that he is a "conservative". Yeah right, that adjective is meaningless, but nice try.
“But” vs “and” .
No supporter of Donnelly...but... this is absolutely ridiculous....
Uh Oh. Lucky for him he’s a Democrat and has a free get of racist category card. Like Hillary joking “they all look alike”. It’s why lazy people are demoncrats; so much easier.
Yeah... like how do conservative democrats get the label? I don't personally believe in killing unborn children but I don't have a problem with women making that decision.
CONservative democrat is an oxymoron!
Some of my best friends are Donnellys, but they all look alike.
Even Indian American is verboten. That’s “native” bud. Indian was a term coined by European invaders. Maybe these are dog whistles for white nationalists (sarc).
That’s nothing. I walked down the street at night with a black friend, but I didn’t get robbed.
Fool doesn’t know the difference between “but” and “and.”
It is indeed sad that because of the Democrats, a candidate has to weigh every word carefully.
Stupid. Where does the party recruit these idiots from?
I thought we moved on to “indigenous peoples”......exhausting isn’t it?
Donnelly received a ZERO score from the American Conservative Union in 2017. This indicates he is a perfect Communist radical.
