Mr. Smith might’ve gone to Washington, but did he remember to visit a Safeway first?
On Sunday, the Dallas Democrats who fled Texas and landed at the nation’s capital — in protest of a state voting bill — reached out on social media to announce that they need your help.
According to the group’s official Twitter account, the politicians are asking people to gather “Dr. Pepper, salsa, hard candy, hairspray” and other essentials crucial to their cause.
💙 Our Dems in DC said they’d appreciate care packages from home. Before 5pm Tues, we're collecting Dr. Pepper, salsa, hard candy, hairspray, travel toiletries, hand sanitizers, sewing kits, first aid, and/ or $ to pay shipping. TY!— Dallas Democrats (@dallasdemocrats) July 24, 2021

Leaving their state to fight back against the GOP-backed legislation, which they have called “the worst thing since the Civil War,” the Democrats have been stranded in luxury D.C. hotel rooms, currently kicking themselves for forgetting their favorite snacks.
After they brought COVID cases to Washington, their grotesque request for gorp displays a concerning lack of self-awareness.
OutKick’s Clay Travis chimed in on the tweet:
“The Democrats who abandoned Texas are asking for care package donations?! They are grown adults in Washington, DC refusing to do their taxpayer funded jobs. And they are surrounded by plenty of stores where they can buy whatever they want. Pathetic.”

Gone are the simple days when Dallas Democrats were more straightforward about their fundraising.
