Tom Cotton Overrules Karine Jean-Pierre: ‘Blaming Republicans for Transgender Killer Who Targeted a Christian School’

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) set White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre straight after she tried to blame Republican lawmakers for the Covenant School shooting in Nashville, Tennessee.

Blaming the GOP for a 28-year-old transgender former student killing three kids and three adults is beyond the pale.

Jean-Pierre said, “What I will say to Republicans in Congress is: ‘What are you going to say to these parents?

“What are you going to say to these family members?’ We cannot sit around to allow this anymore. It’s enough. Enough. Enough. This president has taken more executive actions on gun violence safety than any president before him, and he’s done that in two years.

“But guess what? As we’re seeing, we need to do more.

“And I’ve heard this theme throughout the show this morning, which is courage.

“We need Republicans in Congress to show some courage.

“This is what they owe these parents.

“This is what they owe these family members who are losing their loved ones.

“They need to show courage.”

“We need gun safety laws, comprehensive gun safety laws.

“We need to ban assault rifles.

Tom Cotton wasn’t having it and fired back:

“It doesn’t get much lower than blaming Republicans in Congress for a transgender killer who targeted a Christian school.
