Anti-American Democrat John Lewis seized upon the grandstanding opportunity given to him by the Florida massacre to attack Republicans and President Trump, as if they were…
Rabid communist and black supremacist, Rep John Lewis (D-GA), characteristically jumped all over Treasury Secretary Mnuchin in hearings on Thursday, one day after the Florida massacre, as if he was his whipping boy who had some responsibility for what happened or could wave his magic wand and eradicate evil. The Washington Post then distorted his responses to fit their narrative.
The grandstanding, overacting Democrat stated, “The budget is a reflection of our values and our priorities. I ask one simple querstion [sic], is there any money in da budget to deal wif da proliferation of gun violence?”
Mnuchin replied, “I’m not aware of that level of detail on the budget for me to be the expert to attest on that.” Clearly once again attempting to piggy-back the left’s disarmament and gun confiscation agenda on the backs of those killed in a mass shooting, Lewis says, “Well, in light of what happened yesterday.”
Mnuchin continues, “I will say personally, I think the gun violence is a tragedy, what we’ve seen yesterday and I’d urge Congress to look at these issues.” [[VIDEO BELOW]]
Still attempting to assign the blame for what happened in the killing fields his Democrats have created through their indefensible gun-free zones, libtard Lewis asks, “Do you propose to do something?” Mnuchin states that his responsibilities as Treasury Secretary do not extend to that type of issues.
That’s Lewis’ cue to start the performance. He says, “You are part of this administration. We’re losing hundreds and thousands of people, young children, in school, trying to get an education and they’re murdered. Teachers, a football coarch [sic], and you’re saying to me, who represent [sic] the people in Georgia, the city of Atlanta, where we have the CDC?”
He continues to attempt to make the acts of the mass murderer the responsibility of Republicans, saying, “And someone in this government told the CDC to end a study of gun violence. We can do better. We must do better. We have to save our children, our citizens, our teachers.” Searching for a surrender to the left or at least a useful sound bite, Lewis asks, “So do you have anything, are you willing to…?”
Mnuchin replies, “I assure you I appreciate the severity and the tragedy and I will speak to the President and the other cabinet members.” It’s a non-committal reply that gave drama queen Lewis nothing his disarmament Democrats could use. Therefore their propagandist allies at the Washington Post went to work, deciding to distort his comments into compliance with the narrative of the left.
The Washington Post implied that Mnuchin was calling on Congress to enact gun restrictions when he said nothing of the kind. They wrote, “Mnuchin’s comments were notable, because he was the first senior Trump administration official to call for a congressional review after the massacre.”
Mnuchin made no call for a review, but merely urged that Congress look at the issues. It was a choice between taking the bait Lewis was attempting to get him to bite, to claim that no review was necessary and letting Lewis get his Ninja Turtle mug on the Internet again.
A review could, in fact be necessary and prove to be productive, if the Democrats were open to allowing school officials, teachers and others to carry firearms on campus. Allowing for defense in kind is the only effective deterrent at our disposal and it is off the table for disarmament Democrats like Lewis.
The left determined the best they could do is run a typical disinformation hit on Mnuchin, assigning the blame to the only ones who are serious about preventing the massacres, those who are not interested in keeping the blood flowing in exchange for bleeding heart, weak-minded libtard votes, election cycle after cycle.
