“Suck It Up!” Congresswoman Defends Having Private Security Amid Calls to Defund Police
Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) defended her private security costs and immediately advocated to defund police all while telling her critics to “suck it up.”
The ‘squad’ member congresswoman doubled down when asked to respond to her critics who have called her a hypocrite for spending $70,000 on private security while also calling to defund the police.
“They would rather I die?” asked Bush during the CBS interview Wednesday. “You would rather me die? Is that what you want to see? You want to see me die? You know because that could be the alternative.”
