MNGOP Sen. Dan Hall destroyed on Twitter for making fun of mental illness during SOTU

Sometimes, you should just step away from the keyboard.
Sen. Dan Hall -- a second-term MNGOPer representing parts of Bloomington, Savage, and Burnsville -- is no stranger to Twitter controversy. But he may have outdone himself with his live-tweeting of last night's State of the Union speech.

Hall savaged President Obama throughout this speech, at times making fun of him in ways most everyone found offensive. For his effort, the Twitter mentions filled up with a level of disgust we haven't seen since this incident went down last summer.

We called Hall's office this morning to get his day-after thoughts about Obama's speech, his response, and the response to his response. A staffer said he'd pass along our inquiry, but we haven't heard back as this is published.

In any event, here's what Hall tweeted:

Suffice it to say those tweets went over as well as the Hindenburg over New Jersey. To read the reaction, click to page two.

Eventually We the People will get tired of grabbing our ankles to be fisted by Big Business and their elected sycophants. Until then the authoritarian-minded will continue to elect Republican azz clowns like "Sen" Hall to enact laws against their own self-interest. 


Big Business vs. We the People. Choose wisely.

Maybe the first time I've seen "Un-American" used correctly, thank you!

Is this really going to change anyone's mind? I'm pretty sure that anyone who goes beyond the headline will see that he wasn't making fun of mental illnesses. Way to go city page.

What an incredibly deceitful headline. In no way was Hall "making fun of mental illness."

This provides all of us with an opportunity to hand Hall a pamphlet for mental health services.

If that was what you consider making fun of the mentally ill you must not have any friends. You couldn't possibly socialize because you're always sobbing like a baby over your hurt feelings. Oh no I just made fun of babies! Better break out more tissues you sissies.

Yeah raise the wages, raise grocery prices and leave the poor behind. Thanks for nothing Obama! And doing nothing for the Middle Class. Washington is concerned about 1 thing, only themselves! Typical Islam/Muslim behavior has to hide behind lies... Lord forgive me for sharing my thoughts above but the fact is all I have is you Lord... ty

Dan Hall is a stupid jackass that perfectly illustrates the problems with the Republican Party.   When you have a political base made up of stupid bigots you will elect stupid bigots.   Seriously is anyone surprised this stupid jackass thinks this is a proper use of time?   This is a person so stupid he thought quoting Mel Gibson's racist holocaust denying father was a good idea.  


All adults need to realize this is what the GOP has turned into.  It is a political party infested with stupid Fox News brainwashed clowns.  If you vote for one of these clowns you are hurting the United States.   Do you honestly think this stupid clown knows how to fix healthcare?   How would Dan Hall have caught Bin Laden?   Sent out 13 tweets about him?    The United States needs better politicians.  Until the GOP starts destroying idiots like Dan Hall everyone should understand they are like him.   Do you want Dan Hall to have access to nuclear weapons?    Government is not a game.   We do not need a twitter troll like Dan Hall in government.  Vote DFL.

Senator Dan Hall, You and MANY others like you are what is wrong with today’s GOP. I was always a staunch GOP supporter and voted strictly GOP up and through George W. Bush and that’s when things began to change and so did my wife and I. Why all the criticism for the current administration and no assistance what so ever???? Sure, they are not doing everything right, but to stand on the sidelines and just point out all the negatives and offering no ideas or assistance as far as bipartisan collaboration?? That is just so un-American and not the way it was years ago and not the way it was designed at the beginning of this democracy we call the United States of America. Please bring about change and work things out with your counterparts across the aisle, the way we thought you would when we voted you in as our Senator.

Looks like the senator could use some mental health counseling as it appears he hasn't matured past the junior high school level

Not as idiotic as Obama--his crack about needing mental health was the only thing even remotely in poor taste, but many agree with the sentiment

@MicheleBachmannYou are the dumbest person on Earth!   Dan Hall speaks for about half of this Country.  There is nothing remotely not accurate in his statements.   We have a Lying Preezy and he is calling him out.   O's speeches are the same:  Full of Populist rhetoric, "Fairness, equality, working together...."  blah blah blah.   Look at the state of things in places where Democrats reign, Detroit, California and the other states that have gone bankrupt or are on their way.     While we are gaining Governors, house and senate seats you can eat your words.  Remember this one:  "If you like your doctor, insurance, hospital, you can keep your......"    2014 Democrats are running from the Community Organizer who's never had a real Job.

@WhiteMatt I've been an insane dick to Joe but usually bother to include facts and logic in my responses when I call Joe an asshole about guns.  He has called me names back but never has threatened me.  I don't believe anything a liar like you says.   Even if you are telling the truth its a tribute to your annoying stupidity that you could make Joe mad enough to do that.  



You are just a pathetic stupid racist that has nothing but insults and stupidity to say.   Dumb losers like you are why Republicans are a joke.

@WhiteMatt Yes, isn't it sad that you can't control who has the right to vote? It's the only the only way Republicans can hold power (besides gerrymandering). How'd that Voter ID thing work out for you?  Otherwise, WhiteMatt, Kenny124 and Mingtran are just a few of an ever dwindling group of disturbed angry white men who cling to these hick ideas as the country slowly turns more progressive everyday. You may grow an ulcer but you can't stop it! Haahahahahaha!

@WhiteMatt If only he was mature enough to post insults on twitter and invite the Duck Dynasty guy.   I bet you thought you were really sticking it to Obama when the Duck Dynasty guy walked out.   That will show 'em!   Duck Fucking Dynasty you stupid hick.  hahahahahahahahahaha  That's the best you guys can come up with huh?    The ducking duck dynasty guy?   Next time bring a Kardashian dorks.  No wonder the only people that vote for Republicans are fucking idiots and bigots.  Duck Dynasty.  hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha  That will show Obama!    hahahahahahahahaha  Fucking losers.

@kurt124   hahahahahaha  If anything you cited really made a difference for acquiring wealth then Wisconsin would have a higher per captia income.  Fact is Minnesota is just a better place to live than any red state because stupid hicks like you don't know how to run anything.

@MicheleBachmannHere is another that i am sure is near and dear to your Liberal Heart, and it is one of your parties stupid insane causes to mandate minimum wages to $15/hr:    MN $6.15 vs. WI $7.25.  

kurt124
kurt124 topcommenter

@MicheleBachmannThere you go again.  No argument and your data picking neutralized.  Where do you get this charge of racism?  That charge is used when you have absolutely no argument.  Now put some clothes on, leave your parents basement and get a job and some property of your own.  

kurt124
kurt124 topcommenter

@MicheleBachmannYou are picking the overall Data but that's not the whole story though.   Look at the Jobs added and the fact that 1.) Walkers measures are bringing the rate DOWN! 2.) His rate is still lower than the national average.   As far as the income, not that much of a difference to brag about.   Consider the fact that Walker neutered the Unions in his state and how much that saves the taxpayer!   

I might suggest that you wrap your small brain around some other factors regarding a state by state comparison.   Personal Income Tax MN 5.35%-7.85%  WI 4.60%-6.75%.   Property (my favorite investment)  MN $33 per $1000 vs WI $22 per $1000. THAT IS HUGE!   Corporate MN 9.8% vs WI 7.9%. 

The numbers will look much better for WI as time progresses, thanks to Walkers constraint of the Criminal Unions and their funding of the Democrat Party.   

Again, look at the fact that the GOP is gaining seats in states and the House.   We will gain them this year as well.   Oh, you accused me of not giving facts and you completely ignored the quotes i gave.  Typical.

@Sally  Per Captia income by state:   Minnesota $56,954  National Average:  $50,502   Wisconsin:  $50,395


Unemployment by State:  Minnesota 4.6%  Wisconsin: 6.2%


Since Walker has been elected Wisconsin has been one of the slowest states for job growth.  Mark Dayton was elected at the same time and since then Minnesota has been one of the states that has gained the most jobs.   Wisconsin is suffering because poorly educated bigot trash like you and kurt vote for idiots like Scott Walker no matter what the facts say.   You are nothing but pathetic boot licking losers who support a politician that is owned by the Koch brothers.  Remember that prank call?  Remember how Walker sucked up to the Koch brothers for 20 minutes?  You are pathetic spineless creeps to support that in a politician.

Dumb loser trash like you will never learn.  That's why stupid scum like Dan Hall is your leader.  You are too dumb to realize how ineffective he is.  President Hillary Clinton might be enough for you to learn but I doubt it.  You stupids will never face reality.

@MicheleBachmann@kurt124El Rushbo is not a politician, he's more of a journalist.   You should try him sometime, he is such a journalist that he knows and predicts your news media on a daily basis and then plays it back the next day.    He's almost got it down word for word days and even weeks in advance.   As far as Fox New is concerned they at least ask questions where your abc, cbs, nbc, cnn are just advertisements for the Democrat Party.  Your hatred comes from the fact that your not getting the viewership as much as you used to.

@MicheleBachmann@kurt124If she promises to give enough free stuff to the Democrat constituency she might.  There you go again cherry picking that Data, by 2016 republicans have the Preezy 20 years to your 16. 

You have the rhetorical advantage with Utopian bromides:  Fairness, Equality, Income Gap, Achievement Gap, Gap this Gap that, unfairness............     Your base is so stupid it can't be argued.   Even the folks that are promised all the free stuff are still in the same place and vote Democrat when said free stuff is not delivered or does no good.    Remember, your party needs victims in order to get elected.   But i do agree that it's up hill for the GOP nationally as phrases like Individual Liberty, Individual hard work, opportunity........Do not go over well with what does appear to be growing:  Single parenthood, bad education (which democrats pretty much control), government handouts ect.  So we could be in for at least four years of Kankles, who by no surprise has never worked outside of government and has been around DC for the last 30+ years.    Oh, she missed the 3am phone call and we still dont know where she was.

And refusing to face the reality that your president is an incompetent liar is a sign of a very stupid person.


And a person who fell for his lies and false promises and voted for him not once but twice, is a sign of someone is mentally unstable.

@kurt124 The DFL is not the stupid party.  Refusing to face reality is the sign of a stupid person.   Rush Limbaugh is a bad leader.  That's why you've lost 5 out 6 of the last nationwide votes.  President Hillary Clinton will make it 7 out 8.
