Just ONE DAY after Republican Congressman Scalise was shot by a radical left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter, Nancy Pelosi attacked Trump and Republicans for creating the hostile environment.
Republican Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and two Capitol Police were shot during baseball practice on Wednesday morning.
Scalise was shot in the hip and tried to drag himself off the field after he was shot.
The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson was a Bernie supporter who was obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. He is now dead.
Today Nancy Pelosi blamed Trump and the GOP for the attack.
A reporter asked Nancy Pelosi if the affliction and coarsened political behavior equally afflicts the right and the left, Pelosi quickly answered, “NO, I DON’T”, then elaborated by blaming Trump and the Republicans:
Pelosi: “It didn’t used to be this way. Somewhere in the 90’s, Republicans decided on a politics of personal destruction as they went after the Clinton’s…and that is what has continued.
Pelosi: “When the President says ‘I can shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and nobody would care’, when you have somebody say ‘beat them up and I’ll pay their legal fees’, when you have all the assaults that are made in Hillary Clinton, for them to be so sanctimonious is something that I really am almost sad that I had to go down this path with you because I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to have the fullest discussion of it. It will be for another day.”
