NewsBusters: Tom Cotton SCHOOLS CBS for Trying to Blame Conservatives for Pelosi Attack

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) finally put a stop on Tuesday to CBS Mornings’s attempts to blame conservatives and Republicans for the brutal attack on Paul Pelosi by a drug-addictedmentally ill, and former Green Party-supporting nudist. During the six-plus-minute interview meant to promote his new book, Cotton calmly beat down the repeated aspersions from co-host Tony Dokoupil by citing the left’s double standard on crime and political violence.

Dokoupil began by wondering what was his “reaction” to the alleged crime seeing as how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is “a fellow elected official.” Cotton immediately sniffed out where Dokoupil was going, stating “it’s a terrible crime against Paul Pelosi” and not only did he “wish him the very best and a full recovery,” but called for “the book” to be “throw[n]…at the assailant.”

Adding the suspect is reportedly in the U.S. illegally, Cotton said “throw[ing] the book at” violent criminals should always be the case and regardless of whether it’s Mr. Pelosi, “the person who tried to assassinate Brett Kavanaugh” or “any common criminal who attacks someone” regardless of their status.
