“I can’t think of a president in my lifetime that came to power with so many challenges,” Booker said, referring to President-elect Joe Biden. “I think the American people have a right to expect that we can work on a lot of different fronts from an economic recession to a pandemic to national security threats, as well as holding a president accountable who persistently lied to the American people, whipped up far right-wing extremists and incited a riot, an assault, a siege on the United States Capitol.”
Sigh. There was no riot, no assault, no siege on the Capitol. It was an Antifa-instigated, D.C. cop-facilitated incursion of leftist agitators and rowdy selfie-takers into the Capitol that briefly got out of control.
“I believe it is constitutionally dangerous not to proceed,” the posturing blowhard Booker continued. “We just had a president of the United States try to undermine the peaceful transition of power, try to challenge a fair and free election. Him [sic] and his agents from the moments before, from his son to his lawyer, whipping up a crowd to go attack the Capitol.”
Lie. They did not urge a crowd to attack the Capitol.
“There must be accountability for actions that are this serious and this much of a threat, not just to our Constitution but to the erosion of our nation,” Booker stated.
Democrats love the word “accountability” as long as it’s applyied to a Republican, never to one of their own.
