During a recent Fox News interview, former Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy (SC) reminded all of us why his nickname “Bulldog” is so fitting…
And he definitely showed his teeth when it came to former Brooklyn bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), who said one of the dumbest things on record involving New York City’s soaring crime rates.
Fox News host Sandra Smith asked Gowdy about AOC’s recent statements claiming NYC’s soaring crime is because people are hungry and poor.
“Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren’t paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent and so they go out and they need to feed their child & they don’t have money so…they feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that night,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Liberals love to romanticize everything, like real life is a Broadway play.
Everyone’s been taking jabs at the bartender for her stupid take on things in NYC, and Gowdy definitely got in some good hits!
“God forbid my two decades in a courtroom compare with her experience as a bartender,” Gowdy said, setting the stage for a takedown.
“Was the 1-year-old killed in New York because that child was holding a loaf of bread? I mean, poor people are no more likely to cause you harm than rich people are,” he said.
“That is not the line of demarcation. It is not whether or not you are rich or poor; it is whether you are law-abiding or not law-abiding.
“So, the spike in murder cases, the spike in auto theft, the spike in burglaries: What in the hell does that have to do with being hungry?”
Gowdy then pulled out the weapon of logic — the one thing liberals fear more than anything.
“Go check the criminal histories of the people committing these murders. See how many of them are committing their first criminal offense since the pandemic started and see how many of them are career offenders, where this is just the culmination of a lifetime of crime that resulted in murder,” Gowdy said. “I’ll bet you they are not first-time offenders.”
