I’m still trying to process the fact that someone or some group of people attempted to assassinate two former Presidents, a former Secretary of State, a former Attorney General, a former CIA director, and a sitting US Congresswoman.
And the reaction of the current President is to go have a rally and say things like this:
Basically – Democrats being mean is what gets bombs sent to them. And then mocks the idea that it could have been his own rhetoric that could have been partly to blame:
Yes, Democrats are pissed off and tired of this administration. Lord knows I am. But no one I know, no matter how pissed off, is sending pipe bombs anywhere. And don’t tell me that this act today is in any way equivalent to someone simply confronting an elected representative in a public place.
If they’re trying to scare us into silence, I don’t think it’s going to work.
