Senator Tom Cotton is perhaps one of the best Republican senators serving today, with his military experience undoubtedly providing him with the poise and gravitas necessary to deftly handle idiotic media inquiries.
While Cotton is not nearly as vocal as multiple other Republicans, when he does communicate, he communicates crisply, clearly, and so factually that woke reporters are effectively forced to shift gears.
Such poise was on clear display during an appearance on “CBS Mornings” alongside anchor Tony Dokoupil.
Predictably, Dokoupil tried to steer the conversation in a violent direction, specifically with regards to the attack on Pelosi’s husband which Cotton handled rather deftly.
“We should do the same thing to the person who tried to assassinate Brett Kavanaugh. The same thing to all the agitators who are protesting in violation of federal law outside of justices’ [personal homes]. We need to crack down and get tough on crime in this country,” Cotton pointed out, not only demonstrating his clear commitment to justice, but also indicating the media’s general indifference to attacks on conservatives.
Clearly not satisfied with Cotton’s response, which is far too practical and truthful for the left, Dokoupil continued to attempt fanning flames of division.
“[The GOP argues] the temperature in the country is just too high, the misinformation is just too much, and that we’re going to see more, not less political violence going forward,” Dokoupil intoned.
Cotton refused to take the bait, and instead pointed out how both Democrats and Republicans have been subjected to political violence, or attempts at political violence.
“Well, you see, deranged lunatics attack both Democrats and Republicans alike. I don’t think John Boehner 12 years ago pointing out that Nancy Pelosi passed Obamacare, or Kevin McCarthy now pointing out she passed trillions of dollars of spending that causes inflation led to this apparent nudist activist breaking into her home,” Cotton remarked.
“Apparent nude activist.” What an awesome way to summarize the strange attack that happened to occur in Pelosi’s home right before the midterms.
After all, as more than one commenter has questioned, exactly how many far-right nudists reside in Berkeley, California? In particular apparent illegal immigrant nudists.
Cotton, however, refuses to engage in salacious speculation, instead keeping his focus on punishing crime consistent and fair.
“The simplest way to stop crimes like this is to get tough on crime. It’s not to try to stop campaigning in the middle of a campaign seven days before an election on legitimate issues of public concern,” Cotton asserted.
Dokoupil still didn’t get the hint, and he tried to trap Cotton directly in a rather blunt question. His efforts failed.
“You don’t see a connection between the political rhetoric and the acts of this individual and other individuals?” Dokoupil pressed.
“No more connection than Chuck Schumer going to the steps of the Supreme Court and saying that Brett Kavanaugh wouldn’t know what hit him if he issued rulings that Chuck Schumer disagreed with,” Cotton replied coolly.
Seriously. Schumer’s words were precisely what motivated some far-left looney tune from California to attempt to kill Kavanaugh.
The 26-year-old snowflake went as far as saying he determined his “life’s purpose” was to kill Kavanaugh, a purpose that very well may have been inspired by the media’s effective hit job on the conservative justice.
Which Cotton crisply indicated.
“And what do you have? A left-wing hitman showing up at Brett Kavanaugh’s house to assassinate him. The answer to all of these crimes is to get tough on crime and throw the book at these criminals,” Cotton remarked.
Not to mention news that was just reported regarding shots fired at a Republican candidate’s house, violence covered up by the American media and exposed in the British press.
Unable to respond effectively to a senator with vastly more intellect and savvy, Dokoupil abruptly shifted the conversation to a more neutral topic.
With his focus, experience, and determination, Cotton may well be a potential presidential candidate in the future.
