MSNBC Attacks Greg Abbott: 'It's Hard to Turn a Guy in a Wheelchair into a Villain'

In a shocking display of cruelty, MSNBC’s Zachary Roth attacked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott in an article under the headline: “No One Pushes Greg Abbott Around.” Abbott, who is in a wheelchair, is the Republican gubernatorial candidate running against Wendy Davis.

MSNBC’s Roth goes on to write, “Put simpler: It’s hard to turn a guy in a wheelchair into a villain–no matter his record.”

This incident is not the first time left-of-center advocates for Wendy Davis have crossed lines in using Abbott’s disability. The pro-Wendy Davis group Battleground Texas made headlines when a leader from the group was caught on tape in an undercover James O’Keefe video saying, “I’m wondering how this is going to work out, since he’s in a wheelchair and most of the slogans are ‘Stand with Wendy.'” 

Another snippet of the video revealed a Wendy Davis supporter at an event at an Austin, Texas Democrats club saying, “He’s not good looking, he doesn’t have a personality, and he’s in a wheelchair.” The crowd laugh and applauded.
