Democrats have a major problem on their hands.
But there’s no easy solution.
Trey Gowdy obliterated this rising star Democrat with this inconvenient truth.
Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush joined the “Squad” after winning her election to Congress last November.
Bush – who is one of four Democrat House members who identifies as a socialist – is a vocal supporter of defunding the police.
But during his Sunday night Fox News show, former Congressman Trey Gowdy took Bush to task for being very much in favor of funding her own police – $70,000 dollars-worth of it.
“Members of Congress are spending more money than ever on their personal security,” Gowdy stated.
“It’s a track tragic reflection of the times we live in. Members of Congress have been threatened with all acts of violence. Because of these threats of violence, members of Congress are allowed to spend campaign money on their safety… safety is priority number one for members of Congress, as it should be. But what about you?” Gowdy asked.
As crime becomes a major worry for Americans, Gowdy stated that Americans would feel safer with a greater police presence.
Gowdy ripped Bush for sparing no expense to protect her own personal safety while advocating for putting Americans at risk by defunding the police.
“Do you feel safe? Could your neighborhood benefit from a greater police presence? Is your place of work armed with metal detectors or guard dogs?”
“Are the streets you walk and drive down lined with police cars? Do you have personal security when you travel? I understand full well why members of Congress spend money on their personal safety. I just don’t understand why some members of Congress don’t feel the same way about your safety. If their safety is the highest priority, shouldn’t your safety be too?”
Gowdy told viewers there’s one word to describe Democrats like Cori Bush who want to defund the police for everyone else, but go out of their way to make sure they have a security team watching their own back.
“She wants to defund the police — she wants to defund your police, but not her police,” the former South Carolina Congressman exclaimed.
“She spent nearly $70,000 on her own personal security last year. I don’t know about your city or state, but $70,000 would get your own personal police officer in South Carolina. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Corey Bush tells us he is she is Progressive, the better word might be hypocritical.”
Defunding the police is not politically popular.
Every poll shows the vast majority of Americans oppose cutting funding for the police.
And Trey Gowdy points out that even Democrats who support defunding the police don’t want to put their own rhetoric into practice in their own lives.
