The nation is still reeling from Wednesday’s mass shooting that saw a deranged Trump-hater open fire on a group of Republican congressmen as they practiced for a charity baseball game.
Though House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi originally called for bipartisan unity in the hours after the shooting, she was singing a very different tune on Thursday when she spoke out to blame the shooting on Donald Trump and his supporters. It didn’t take long for this to bite her in a big way.
The Gateway Pundit reported that even though the gunman was a staunch Democrat who was a radical Bernie Sander supporter, Pelosi still tried to blame Republican Trump-supporters for this tragedy.
“It didn’t used to be this way. Somewhere in the 90’s, Republicans decided on a politics of personal destruction as they went after the Clinton’s…and that is what has continued,” Pelosi said. “When the President says ‘I can shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and nobody would care’, when you have somebody say ‘beat them up and I’ll pay their legal fees’, when you have all the assaults that are made in Hillary Clinton, for them to be so sanctimonious is something that I really am almost sad that I had to go down this path with you because I don’t think it’s appropriate for us to have the fullest discussion of it. It will be for another day.”
Pelosi went on to blame Fox News for the shooting, despite the fact that the shooter was a huge Rachel Maddow fan. It didn’t take long for Twitter users to let Pelosi know that she’d gone too far:
@NancyPelosi your speech yesterday lack sincerity, you speech today showed your hate! So bitter!
