A number of Republicans – people who like to preach to others about family values and civility – seem to find the recent attack on Paul Pelosi very amusing indeed.
“Imagine how safe the country would be if democrats took all violent crime as seriously as they’re taking the Paul Pelosi situation,” he posted.
Trump Jr, it should be said, can always be relied on to react to a situation in incredibly bad taste.
The only reason it’s worth mentioning his disgusting comments is because he wasn’t alone in mocking Pelosi.
Republicans should be united in their condemnation of politically motivated violence and pledge to find ways to turn down America’s political temperature.
It’s certainly true that there are unhinged people across the political spectrum and politicians from both sides have been targeted for violence.
Pelosi may be on the road to recovery, but American democracy is going down a very dark path. »
