It's no secret that the Republican tax bill is incredibly unpopular. If you're looking for a quick explainer, check out our write-up here. If you'd like to watch Rodney Davis fail miserably to defend the bill, check out the video below:

We're not sure who keeps putting Davis up to this, but his last appearance on MSNBC was just as bad, and his other attempts at a coherent defense of the party line on national television have gone just as poorly. You'd think that after being swept virtually nation-wide in the recent election, party leadership would be looking to mitigate their exposure, and only put the best and the brightest on camera. Clearly, someone dropped the ball by allowing Rep. Davis to embarrass himself (and by extension, those of us unfortunate enough to be represented by him) on the national stage yet again.
