Pelosi Claims GOP Budget Stirs Up Violence

Reminder: one month ago, Republicans were shot by a Democrat.

Remember about a month ago, when a Bernie bro shot up a baseball field of Republicans, as he tried to kill as many GOP members as possible? Nancy Pelosi, the master of exaggeration and hyperbole, apparently does not. On Wednesday, the house minority leader from California spoke at an event decrying education cuts, when she claimed the GOP's budget will catalyze violence.

Here's just some of what she managed to say, with a straight face:

A budget that says we do not measure the strength of our country in the health, education, and well-being of our people. We only measure it in military might. You know what that does? It requires more military might. It takes us down the wrong path. We take an oath to protect and defend. But, that’s not the point of this. This is supposed to be a budget that prevents the spread of violence, instead they have a budget that stirs it up.

Let us pause and appreciate the amount of gall required to utter those words as U.S. Congressman Steve Scalise still recovers from yet another surgery after being struck by a Democrat's bullet. I wonder if he watched Pelosi's speech from his bed at MedStar Washington Hospital?

Watch a portion of her speech below, and marvel at her lack of self-awareness and her evident callousness toward true suffering:
