DescriptionIt took about five minutes for the toilet paper to come out.

Standing outside the state Capitol on Thursday, Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Corey Stewart, who came stunningly close to capturing the GOP nomination for governor in 2017, hoisted a white roll as he called Republicans who support Medicaid expansion “flaccid” and “garbage.”

“When you lie to your constituents and tell them that you’re going to vote against Medicaid because it’s bad for Virginia and then you go up there because of political cowardice and vote for it, you’re pathetic and you’re useless. In fact, I compare them to toilet paper,” Stewart said, ripping off a square and squeezing it with his fingers.

“These are toilet paper Republicans. Just as soft, just as weak, just as pathetic, just as flimsy. Put a little bit of pressure on them and they crumble.”

Asked if he was intentionally using the term “flaccid” to be suggestive, Stewart took it a step further.

“I’m suggesting I feel sorry for their wives,” Stewart said.
