U.S. Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA), in an apparent act of vulgarity, flippled off the Republican dugout at Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game. The game ended with Republicans dominating 10-0.
The Daily Wire reports:
Sanchez’ vulgar gesture comes five years after a left-wing terrorist tried to assassinate Republican lawmakers at one of the practices leading up the game. The terrorist shot five people, including Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), but fortunately the only person who was killed was the terrorist.
“5 years ago my colleagues & I were attacked playing baseball—because we’re Republicans,” Scalise wrote on Twitter. “We didn’t let it stop us then & nothing will stop us now. It’s been a long journey, but tonight we play the Congressional Baseball Game—5 years stronger.”
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said during a 2018 interview that the media largely ignored a key detail from attack, that the terrorist was yelling “this is for healthcare!” while he was shooting. “He also had a list of conservative legislators, Republicans, in his pocket that he was willing to kill,” Paul added.
