Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said on this week’s “Fox News Sunday” show that it’s unfair to blame Republicans for the attack on Paul Pelosi.
Anchor Shannon Bream said: “I want to start with the attack on Paul Pelosi, she’s making all the headlines this weekend. He is recovering from surgery, expected to be fine, to make a full recovery. But the Washington Post wasted no time, writing: “For many Democrats, the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband represents the all-but-unenviable conclusion to Republicans’ increasingly violent and threatening rhetoric toward the political opponents”. There are still a lot of things we don’t know about this case, what do you think of this accusation? »
McDaniel said, “Well, I think that’s unfair. I think he’s a deranged individual. You can’t say that the people who say let’s fire Pelosi or let’s take over the House are saying to go and be violent. It’s just unfair. And I think we all have to recognize that the violence is widespread. Lee Zeldin was attacked. We had an assassination attempt on Brett Kavanaugh. And the Democrats haven’t refuted — haven’t repudiated that. Joe Biden has not spoken about the assassination attempt on Brett Kavanaugh.
