      Wow. Sad. It's gotta be a Trump thing. I've met Pete Hoekstra before, and this ain't the same guy. Of course, he ran for Senator and lost to the Democrat. That'll send 'em off the deep end, too

      I have not followed this particular piece of news very carefully, but I have the feeling that the big deal here was simply that he used a term that's highly charged and brings a lot of other associations to mind. I will bet that Hoekstra could have said essentially the same thing--but not used that term--and it wouldn't have become the issue it did.

      He was right though. They do burn politicians here. Just not literal.
