Dem Senate Nominee in Iowa Divides Americans into ‘The Apathetic, the Fearful,’ and the Treason ‘Accomplices’

Democrat nominee for U.S. Senate in Iowa Michael Franken asserted that the American electorate is comprised of three groups: “the apathetic, the fearful, and the unknowing accomplices to the treasonous.”
Franken, a retired Navy admiral who faces a near double-digit deficit in polling to Conservative titan Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), made the comments in a tweet Friday morning and was met with significant pushback from the Grassley campaign.
“We have a nation segmented in thirds–the apathetic, the fearful, and the unknowing accomplices to the treasonous,” he wrote. “The task at hand is to alert, organize, confront, and vote.”
In response, Michaela Sundermann, the communications director for the Grassley Campaign, tweeted that “Iowans want to know which one are you: fearful, treasonous, or apathetic?”
In a subsequent tweet, Franken asserted a previous commander-in-chief had never served his country and alluded to the former president undergoing a military tribunal.
