Star-Tribune reporter failed at his job reporting Minnesota Caucus, but he had a great excuse

No, Eric Roper’s dog didn’t eat his homework. While it is true that the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter didn’t write a word about yesterday’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) Caucus for the state’s House District 60B, it was not for lack of trying.

You see, Roper didn’t have the words … literally. That’s because all of the candidates’ speeches were in Somali, a language in which Roper evidently lacks fluency.

Roper did manage to fire off a few tweets, as Gateway Pundit reveals:

Welcome to the United States of America.
