In the first episode of CNN State of the Union since the election day, hostess Dana Bash interviewed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to spout on the Democratic Party’s better-than-expected performance in both Senate and House races. Unable to explain the results, pointing to a Democratic Party record of 40 years of high inflation, open borders and deepening recession, Bash asked Pelosi if “political violence” was what caused voters to fail to pass a clear verdict on the results Bidena in the office.
“You referred to this when I asked about your husband. But I just want to ask specifically and a bit directly about the fact that there was such extremism, such political violence, and what happened to your husband was terrifying. who cast their votes? ”
Bash only mentioned the alleged attack on Chairman Pelosi’s husband, Paul, and not the shooting of the GOP congressman candidate Pat Harrigan’s parents’ housethe assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, or the countless attacks on pro-life centers across the country.
“It wasn’t just an attack, it was a Republican reaction to him that was disgraceful and I think really – the attack is terrible,” Pelosi replied.
The Marshal then accused the Republicans of not responding to the attack in the way she demanded: “This trauma is compounded by the ridiculous, disrespectful attitude of the Republicans – no one dissociates himself from the terrible response they gave.”
Bash jumped back in to ask if the brutal attacks had discouraged voters, to which Pelosi replied, “They tell me so.”
No hints or sympathies to the Kavanaugh or Harrigan families for the attack against them and their families. CNN apparently only considers this a threat to democracy when the democrat is under attack.

CNN State of the Union
DANA BASH: Madam Speaker, you made that point when I asked about your husband. But I just want to ask specifically and directly about the fact that there was such extremism, such political violence, and what happened to your husband was terrifying. Do you think this had an impact on the voters who cast their votes?
SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: I know what people tell me, it’s an anecdote. We always say that the plural of an anecdote isn’t necessarily data, but it’s a trend in what I hear. It wasn’t just an attack, it was a Republican reaction to him that was disgraceful and I think really – the attack is terrible. Imagine how I feel as a target and my husband pays the price and traumatic impact on our family, but this trauma is compounded by the ridiculous, disrespectful attitude of the Republican – no one dissociates himself from the horrible response they gave to him.
BASH: Did that exclude voters?
PELOSI: So they tell me.
