The 7 too-crazy-to-be-real things this Texas Republican has actually said

The newly appointed chair of the Republican Party in Travis County, Texas, has what you might call "a reputation." Robert Morrow, who will assume his new post in June, has scandalized the other Republicans in office with his recent win.

"We will explore every single option that exists, whether it be persuading him to resign, trying to force him to resign, constraining his power, removing his ability to spend money or resisting any attempt for him to access data or our social media account," vice chair Matt Mackowiak told The Texas Tribune.

Morrow's response? "Tell them they can go f--k themselves."

While many of Morrow's tweets are so sexually explicit and libelous that they aren't worth sharing (a quick scroll through his Twitter feed turns them up quickly enough for anyone curious about what kind of person can actually get elected in this country), The Texas Tribune included enough details to give a marginally cleaner portrait of Morrow. Below, some of Morrow's most outrageous statements that are just barely fit to print. Jeva Lange

1. "Is Hillary Clinton really an angry bull dyke? Bill says so!!"

2. "Many women say Bill Clinton's penis is 'not presidential timber.'"

3. "The Bushes are criminals and should be in jail."

4. "Marco needs to go to those gay foam parties."

5. "Very likely Marco Rubio a gayman who got married."

6. These insane emails he sends to reporters:

7. This:

Though Morrow has tweeted often about sexually explicit acts involving Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton and his last several Facebook profile pictures were of scantily clad women, he said he denies any charge that he is sexist.

"It's derogatory toward Hillary Clinton because I hate Hillary Clinton," he told the Tribune. "But I'm not sexist. Why would you ask that? I'm not sexist."

"I like beautiful women, I celebrate feminine beauty," Morrow added. “I'm like Donald Trump — I love women." [Texas Tribune]
