This is pathetic.
Senator Tom Cotton, who is a member of the Republican Party, criticized White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for accusing Republican lawmakers of responsibility for the Covenant School shooting in Nashville. The incident occurred on Monday, and a 28-year-old transgender former student allegedly shot and killed three 9-year-olds and three adults.
According to Fox, Cotton blasted President Biden’s White House and wrote, “It doesn’t get much lower than blaming Republicans in Congress for a transgender killer who targeted a Christian school. Shameful.”
Cottons comments came after Jean-Pierre stated, “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,” Jean-Pierre added. “This president has taken more executive actions on gun violence safety than any president before him, and he’s done that in two years.”
Jean-Pierre emphasized the need for increased efforts, stating that despite previous actions, more needs to be done. She also mentioned that courage is required, which was a recurring theme during the show. She called on Republican lawmakers to demonstrate courage in fulfilling their obligation to the parents and family members who have lost loved ones.
Jean-Pierre expressed the need for comprehensive gun safety legislation, including a ban on assault rifles. She firmly stated that such weapons have no place in public areas, such as streets and schools.
