BREAKING: New York Democrat Says Country Music Shooting Was ‘God’s Message To Republicans’ On Gun Control
Democrats are sick people, but few are sicker than Yonkers, New York mayor Shaquanda Jenkins.
The attack on the country music festival in Las Vegas, which was committed by an anti-Trump liberal Democrat, was the bloodiest in our nation’s history. More than 50 people were shot and killed by the shooter, who got his guns illegally thanks to unenforced regulations, and 200 more were hospitalized after he opened fire during Jason Aldean’s performance.
In a town hall with constituents the other day, Jenkins said that it’s “never good when people die,” but that the attack should be considered “God’s message to Republicans” on gun control.
“It’s time for them they wake up and smell the gunpowder,” Jenkins said. “Now that they lost more than 50 likely Republican voters to a single act of gun violence, maybe they’ll care a little more about what the rest of us are dealing with.”
Jenkins, who is currently serving her second term as mayor, was recently cleared in a bribery scandal involving her brother’s dry cleaning service and the local police department. She ran on a platform of “social justice, equality for all, and the realization that black lives matter too.” Her heavily democratic district elected her with 90% of the votes.
Many Republicans are calling for Jenkins to resign, but she thus far refuses.
“I can’t apologize for telling the truth and I sure as hell will not step down,” she says.
