'5': Democrats unable to spin 'defund the police'; Can't 'play race card' or use Trump 'crutch'

ザ・ “払い戻し” 民主党の顔の動きは時間とともに爆発した, as cities like ポートランド, 鉱石。, フィラデルフィア, オークランド, ニューヨーク, アトランタ そして シカゴ have seen spikes in violent crime rates, ホストのグレッグ・ガットフェルドは; playing a montage of several big-city Democrats voicing support for defunding police or outwardly criticizing law enforcement.

ボストン, 我ら. 担当者. Ayanna Pressley was quoted as saying she explicitly supports the ‘Defund’ movement becausethis is about the investments in our community which have historically been divested.

ミネアポリス’ 担当者. イルハン・オマル called fordismant[ling] and start[NS] anew,” while the Bronx’s Rep. アレクサンドリアオカシオコルテス claimed suburbs have also begun re-allocating police funds to public schools and housing.

Following the montage of Democrats showing support for defunding the police, ホスト ジェシー・ワターズ posited that others in the Democratic Party are having a tough time now claiming they are not in favor of such drastic measures because they are unable toplay the race cardor use Donald Trump as a foil now that he is 1,000 miles away from the White House in Palm Beach.

Notice how they’re not playing the race card. The Democrats are only good at that: at playing the race card – they either will censor conservatives or they will throw the race card down,” 彼は言った.


When they actually have to debate a policywhich they triggered – the substance of it – they are having a hard time and they are scrambling.

Watters said Trump acted as acrutchfor left-wing politicians and activists over the past four years, and that the Democrats are now exposed as having no viable solutions to crises they caused in a Trump-less environment.

That’s why they are blaming Republicans and guns and it’s sad,” 彼は言った, adding that a “五” producer researched the list of cities defunding the police and found that all 22 are run by Democrats.

It’s not a Republican issue. When you remove the racial obsession, it survived under the guise that this was a race issue, Black versus White, White cops versus Black suspects.

Co-host ジェシカ・ターロフ later pushed back on one of the comments from the montage, saying that while Harris had praised Garcetti’s policies, she herself has not been a proponent of defunding police.

彼の部分について, following the death of ジョージ・フロイド, Garcetti publicly disagreed with Black Lives Matter’s demand that 90% of the LAPD budget be slashed, instead voicing support forreimagining public safetyand reallocating some funds, according to the city’s ABC affiliate.
