A day after it was reported that Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) would be allowed to bring her newborn daughter Maile Pearl Bowlsbey onto the Senate floor if necessary, a conservative pundit for Turning Point USA lamented the impact that baby could have on future legislation that might affect children and mothers.

After there were complaints about how having a nursing newborn among the mostly male Senate might affect the political body’s “decorum,” Richard Armande Mills took to Twitter to express misgivings.

“I agree with their statements on “decorum.” Not because I have a problem with babies at the workplace, but because I have issues with Duckworth potentially being able to weaponize that baby to affect legislative decision making. And I could see her doing that,” Mills tweeted.

The conservative who previously expressed concerns about “unborn children,” was promptly spanked harshly on social media for comparing a newborn to a “weapon” used to promote social services that primarily help the poor.
