A 66-year-old man from Illinois came across Republicans practicing for a charity baseball game on Wednesday morning. He returned a short time later with a high-powered rifle and started shooting. The attack resulted in 5 people being wounded. Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded critically with a gunshot to the hip.
The shooter, James Hodgkinson, died from his wounds on the way to hospital.
Nancy Pelosi didn’t waste any time blaming Republicans for the shooting.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Republicans started the current level of coarse political rhetoric when they attacked President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Note: Pelosi thinks George Bush is still the President, however, she’s not entirely sure which one.
A Bernie Sanders supporter shot the House Majority Whip because he disagreed politically. And Pelosi says Republicans are being sanctimonious?
That has to be one of the more despicable comments you will ever hear from a sitting member of Congress.
Young Conservatives reports:
For a minute there yesterday, I thought for sure we would see Republicans and Democrats in Congress be nice to each other for a day or two.
Not necessarily unity. Mark Steyn made a great point that unity is the wrong word to use.
But at the very least, you’d think that both parties could agree that the Scalise situation shouldn’t be politicized.
Nah. Nancy Pelosi isn’t on board with that.
