Missouri senator says he would torch ‘woke pornographic books’ after false claims of book burning at GOP event

Missouri Senator Eric Burlison has denied false claims that books were burned at a recent GOP event. While Senator Burlison has made comments about his distaste for “woke pornographic books,” he has not advocated for or supported any kind of book burning. He has stated that if he did not have the opportunity to debate or challenge the material, he would have a “fireplace and a big stack of books” to torch.
