TFP| Democrats have really hit rock bottom on this one.
Their lack of taste and class is just mind boggling.
One would think uniting to play baseball after the tragic Congressional shooting would be the most bi-partisan activity on the Hill.
But, you underestimate the nature of certain congressional staffers.
According to the Washington Times:
Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.
Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.
One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.”
The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for the game.
When both teams went to second base — the symbolic spot where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack at the Alexandria practice field — to kneel and pray, some mocked the prayer, too. The fans appeared to be Democratic staffers, having booed the announcement of several members of the GOP lineup.
These democratic staffers presented the same hatred and disrespectful behavior as the shooter–at the unity baseball game.
When your stance on political issues becomes more important than honoring the injured or respecting other human beings, there can be no bi-partisan cooperation on Capitol Hill… or stability in American society.
Thankfully, however, this group did not compromise the majority of fans. As most were “in the correct mood…chanting U-S-A and giving a loud standing ovation to Capitol Police Special Agent David Bailey, who along with two other special agents… were credited with saving the lives of dozens of lawmakers and staffers.”
Lawmakers on the left and right are asking for civility. Maybe we can just be decent human beings for once, can we, Leftists?
