GOP Senator Tim Scott broke his silence on Nancy Pelosi’s somewhat scandalous comments about Republican Senators.
“For something to happen, they’re going to have to face the realities of police brutalities, the realities of the need for justice in policing, and the recognition that there’s many good people in law enforcement, but not all,” Pelosi said of the GOP.
“And that we have to address those concerns. So, when they admit that, and have some suggestions that are worthy of consideration — but so far they were trying to get away with murder, actually — the murder of George Floyd.”
Enter Tim Scott:
“I thought to myself, ‘How in the world does this woman, standing in front of a $24,000 refrigerator, have the sense to jump into the bottomless pit of race politics?”
“Why in the world would she want to do that?’
“There’s only one answer, by the way, one answer,” Scott said.
“It’s because she’s lived so long in a state of privilege that she has forgotten that it’s the Republican Party that voted more for the Civil Rights-era legislation than the Democrats.”
“It’s because she’s forgotten that it was President Trump and the criminal justice reform done in 2018 that made up for the Democrats’ 1994 crime bill.”
“She’s forgotten that it’s the school choice movement that frees more kids in poverty from the poor education system brought to us by the Democrats and the teachers’ unions than they’ve ever seen.”
“She has forgotten so much about reality that she spends too much time in an alternate universe.”
“But the facts are simple,” Scott said.
“Why in the world would she stoop so low? And it’s simply this: They believe, and I truly believe this, they believe that campaigning on police brutality is more important than solving police reform.”
“That tells me that their issue is not police reform, their issue is not helping the kids in the poorest neighborhoods, their issue is a political issue so that, they for the next four months have a chance to campaign on police reform without exactly solving the issues of police reform,” Scott said earlier.
