‘Holy crap!’ Did Andrea Mitchell just out herself as a ‘wheelchair truther’?

Psssst! Did you know that Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott might just be faking that whole “disability” thing? Well, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell knows.

Earlier today, she interviewed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis about that now-infamous attack ad against Greg Abbott.

( function() {
var func = function() {
var iframe_form = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-form-242a59f57974460c70794bc86a7de986-543d81279668e’);
var iframe = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-242a59f57974460c70794bc86a7de986-543d81279668e’);
if ( iframe_form && iframe ) {
iframe_form.submit();
iframe.onload = function() {
iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( {
‘msg_type’: ‘poll_size’,
‘frame_id’: ‘wpcom-iframe-242a59f57974460c70794bc86a7de986-543d81279668e’
}, window.location.protocol + ‘//wpcomwidgets.com’ );
}
}

// Autosize iframe
var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) {
var origin = document.createElement( ‘a’ );
origin.href = e.origin;

// Verify message origin
if ( ‘wpcomwidgets.com’ !== origin.host )
return;

// Verify message is in a format we expect
if ( ‘object’ !== typeof e.data || undefined === e.data.msg_type )
return;

switch ( e.data.msg_type ) {
case ‘poll_size:response’:
var iframe = document.getElementById( e.data._request.frame_id );

if ( iframe && ” === iframe.width )
iframe.width = ‘100%’;
if ( iframe && ” === iframe.height )
iframe.height = parseInt( e.data.height );

return;
default:
return;
}
}

if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.addEventListener ) {
window.addEventListener( ‘message’, funcSizeResponse, false );
} else if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.attachEvent ) {
window.attachEvent( ‘onmessage’, funcSizeResponse );
}
}
if (document.readyState === ‘complete’) { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ }
else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( ‘DOMContentLoaded’, func, false ); }
else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( ‘onreadystatechange’, func ); }
} )();

That’s when she asked Davis about this (starts around the 4:15 mark):

Senator, could you have gone after what you see as his hypocrisy by pointing out what he did in that rape case, what he did in these other cases, without this stark image of the empty wheelchair, which seemed to be trying to point people toward his own supposed disability?

Uh, beg your pardon, Andrea?
