Mayor Muriel Bowser, of Washington, D.C., says Trump’s response to protests brought out more demonstrators.
What’s her beef – thought it was their right – isn’t that what she said earlier.
President Donald Trump’s comments and federal response to the recent George Floyd protests encouraged more people to demonstrate this weekend, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser said on ABC’s “This Week.”
What we witnessed this week in all blue states, including Bowser’s, is a failure of liberalism. The leadership of the city and state could not persuade the protesters it claims to represent to remain peaceful. And when rioting, looting and arson erupted, and attacks on police began, that leadership sat morally and politically paralyzed.
The elites could not condemn both the killing of George Floyd and, with equal moral vehemence, the violent and criminal element that came to permeate the ranks of the protesters.
Mayor Bowser can’t have her cake and eat it, too!
You can’t have your cake and eat it too – is a phrase that means there are two options that someone wants, but they can’t have both because the options conflict with each other, so they can only pick one.
