Senate Anti-Gunner Spins Latest Clinton Debacle

Senate Anti-Gunner Spins Latest Clinton Debacle

Anti-gun zealot Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) sure can keep a straight face when he’s evading hard questions that reveal his and his allies’ flaws of judgment and character.

A case in point occurred in June, after Murphy led a Democrat filibuster aimed at using an ISIS-inspired attack upon nightclub patrons in Orlando to force the Senate to vote on gun control restrictions that anti-gunners have been demanding for years.

Asked by ABC News’ Jonathan Karl why he was pushing so adamantly for restrictions that wouldn’t have prevented the Orlando crime or others like it, Murphy responded, “we can’t get into the trap in which we are forced to defend our proposals simply because it didn’t stop the last tragedy.” He might as well have said, “don’t make us prove our case, just give us what we want.”

Another case in point occurred this week, when Murphy tried to deflect attention away from the substance of emails, released by Wikileaks, in which some Democrat Party officials, including Rep. Debbie Wassermann Schultz, then the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, discussed how to deny the party’s presidential nomination to Sen. Bernie Sanders, in favor of their preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton.

Sanders’ supporters, understandably upset that establishment Democrats had plotted against their candidate, booed Wassermann Schultz off the stage at the Democrat National Convention on Monday. The shameless Murphy was then trotted out to try to change the subject. On Fox News with Bret Baier, Murphy said, “What people should be angry about is that we have mounting evidence that it was the Russian government that [hacked the emails that Wikileaks leaked].” As if the identity of the hackers somehow would change what was said in the emails and make everything rosy with the Sanders crowd.

One can only imagine how Murphy will explain the latest revelation in that story: After Wassermann Schultz was forced to resign from the DNC because of her pro-Clinton machinations, she took a job with the Clinton campaign, as Clinton described it, “to gain ground and elect Democrats in every part of the country” and “to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally.” Furthermore, Wassermann-Schultz’ replacement at the DNC, Donna Brazile, is a longtime Clinton operative, having worked on Bill Clinton’s presidential campaigns in 1992 and 1996.

One hopes Americans will remember Murphy’s propensity for informational discombobulation the next time he lectures them about the kinds of gun control laws to which they should agree. He’s about the last person anyone should turn to for a straight account on any important issue.
