You can’t miss it on news outlets and social media posts, Democrats and their cronies are pouncing on Republicans because of the alleged hammer attack on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi. The messages have little to do with Paul or his recovery from the attack and subsequent surgery, the messages are focused on the GOP and their “culpability” for this act of violence.
President Joe Biden has not even stayed above the fray and one of his allies, Jen Psaki, made things even worse for Biden.
Biden made some concerning comments on the Pelosi case and even blamed people questioning the 2020 election for the attack on Nancy’s husband.
Speaking about the “malarky” of talking about the big lie regarding a stolen election, Biden said, “This talk produces violence.” So he called for the end to talk.
“The election was not real, it’s been stolen — All the, all the malarkey that’s being put out there, to undermine democracy. You can’t just apologize and say: the violence,” Biden told reporters in Wilmington, Delaware. “It affects people’s mentality, it affects how people think — particularly people who are not maybe as stable as other people. So the talk has to stop. That’s the problem. That’s the problem. You can’t just say you feel bad about the violence and condemn it. Condemn what produces the violence.”
Once again, instead of putting the blame squarely on the criminal and his potential mental illness, Biden said it was thinking or talking about the possibility that the election could be questioned. They’ve become good at this line of thought by blaming the gun for crimes instead of the shooter.
What’s crazy is that hardly anything has been confirmed regarding the criminal’s motivation for this crime. Biden jumped to such conclusions without any of the real facts.
Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki went even further than Biden. She accused Trump of “directing” threats or harassment against Democratic officials.
Come on, Jen. Where do you get this?

we are all thinking about Paul Pelosi and @SpeakerPelosi and it’s important to remember that these public officials and their families often live under threat, under harassment (often directed by the former President) and they still do it to serve the American people
