Cori Bush Condemns Republicans Who Skirted Metal Detectors At U.S. Capitol

Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) lambasted her Republican colleagues who refused to follow new safety rules at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday, saying lawmakers who  refused to use new metal detectors  to do their work in Congress should get another job.




“For those that did that, first of all, we’re talking about your job,” Bush told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. “Let’s just look at it from the most basic level: If you work at McDonald’s you have to wear the uniform or you’re not working today.”


Many House Republicans refused to use the metal detectors  on Tuesday evening when they entered the chamber to vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to strip President  Donald Trump  of his powers. The Capitol safety measures were enacted after the violent insurrection there last week, fanned by Trump and his allies.


But as HuffPost’s Matt Fuller reported, at least 10 Republicans walked around the detectors as a group, disregarding Capitol Police officers who were guarding the door.


Bush’s comments came as another lawmaker, Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.), attacked the use of metal detectors as an “appalling” infringement on his right to carry a gun.


“The speaker and her Democratic colleagues think an appropriate response is to prevent members from exercising their Second Amendment constitutional rights in the very place that wasn’t secure a week ago,” Steube said on the House floor. “This attack didn’t come from the inside; it came from the outside. And to respond by restricting members’ Second Amendment rights … is appalling.”

“Take note, America,” he said, “this is what you have to look forward to in the Joe Biden administration.


Bush said Tuesday night that her Republican colleagues were simply trying to “push the limits as far as they can.”


“You know what,” she added, “If they won’t abide by the simple things this job calls for, then go find another one.”

BITCH PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's because of tRump and his mob siege that these metal detectors are now necessary.

And it's still the Trump Administration, so why mention Biden?  Weak sauce, all hat, no cattle.

Seems very prudent to provide for your own self protection. What about the Democrats who did the same thing? jrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gif

I'm sure this Steube is just another tRump ass kissing, QANon whackjob.  He was probably part of tRump's mob siege on the Capitol.

Another approach:

In contrast to what we've seen in state legislatures the assholes in camo who trashed the Congress of the United States were not (openly) carrying guns.

This is very likely due to D.C.'s strict gun laws, and the mayor's announcement that those laws would be strictly enforced.

There were no Kyle Rittenhouse "good guys with guns" killing whomever they pleased.

Anyone who imagines that lots of guns would have had no impact on the Sixth is a deluded fool.

So maybe guns in Congress is just a really had idea.

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert ‘was in stand-off on Capitol Hill after refusing bag search’

Lauren Boebert was in 'stand-off' on Capitol Hill after refusing bag search

Congresswoman Lauren Boebert reportedly went up against Capitol Hill police after refusing a bag check as she entered the Capitol building.

"RIGHT NOW-> Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, who has bragged about her desire to carry a weapon on Capital Hill is currently in a standoff with Capitol Police at the newly installed Metal Detectors outside the chamber doors," wrote CNN Washington correspondent Ryan Nobles on Twitter.

Check out her arrest record as early as 2017

She is also the one who was letting tRump's mob know where Pelosi was during their siege.

Nut case who wont wear a mask, won't wear a seat belt, speeds while texting, allows child to be out of a child seat or seat belt.

When cited, fails to pay, fails to appear in court until arrested for warrants.

Gained notoriety for keeping her restaurant open during lock down and was still elected.

Pretty sure the rap sheet I posted last week went back to 2010

I meant as recently as 2017 - was there anything more recent?

I heard something about her husband exposing himself to some teenagers and she was present?

She should be censured and eventually removed.  She is little more than a Trump ass kisser and has no business in any kind of power.

They feel that they are too privileged to have to abide by rules for the masses. 

Should have locked the assholes out of the chamber so they could dance with the insurgents during the attack.
