We all make mistakes and say something slightly wrong from time to time. Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe did just this when he spoke in reaction to the “Republican Shootings” that took place yesterday. He stated that “We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence,” which is clearly wrong, but also still clearly only misspeaking.
Has he been asked to resign? Has he been called the King of Fake News? No. Of course not. Because he is not connected to the Trump presidency. The rabid Left are so hypocritical that they cannot see how idiotic they look when calling people out for a slip of the tongue. When Kelly Ann Conway spoke about BowlingGreen, she was referring to real events with real terrorists, but one wrong word and the press were all over her.
When Donald Trump talked about “What’s happening in Sweden”, he added a word by accident, but it did not mean his point was wrong. Yet the Left went crazy again. McAuliffe shouldn’t resign for misspeaking, and he shouldn’t be too badly mocked. We are better than them, we don’t need to stoop down to their level to win the debate.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“We need to do more to protect all of our citizens. I have long advocated — this is not what today is about — but there are too many guns on the street,” the governor began his response.
“We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence,” he confidently asserted, without immediate correction by staff. “I have long talked about this.”
McAuliffe then gave examples of the kinds of gun restrictions he would like to see put in place.
