In Sen. David Vitter’s (R-LA) book, conservative billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch are some of the most “patriotic Americans” in the history of the planet.
Vitter made the comments during a March 18 town hall at Blanchard Elementary School in Blanchard, Louisiana.
“I think the Koch Brothers are two of the most patriotic Americans in the history of the Earth,” Vitter said. That line sparked applause from the audience.
Later on during the town hall, Vitter heaped some more praise on the Koch brothers, which again, sparked applause.
“Maybe this is a good example because I’ll be honest with you, God Bless the Koch brothers,” Vitter added. “They’re fighting for our freedoms.”
