Former Navy SEAL and Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw is blasting Democrats as they continue their refusal to return to work in Washington D.C.
"Cowardice. Cowardice is the only way to describe that. This is more than just about accountability. Let's keep in mind everybody if you got paid hourly to be in Congress you bet Nancy Pelosi would be there. You'd be they'd be there," Crenshaw said Thursday morning during an interview with Fox and Friends. "Now here's the thing. This is about leadership. This is about leading on the front lines along with the American people who are also on the front lines. Nurses, doctors, people still working in grocery stores, working our supply chains, people trying to grow food and raise cattle and watching their food production plummet."
"People are having real problems but people are trying and they're fighting on the front lines. They're risk mitigating, they're being smart, but they're still engaging in life. Why can't Congress do the same? It's about leadership. It's about demonstrating to the American people we're not scared and spineless," he continued. "Just for once I wish we would actually demonstrate that. There is no problem going in and debating. You can exert the same kind of risk mitigation measures that everybody else across America is doing and yet Nancy Pelosi refuses to do that. The Senate is going back to work and thank God we have them doing that. The House needs to do the same. This is cowardly to the core. I honestly can't believe it. This is such a lack of leadership."
Congressman Jim Jordan made a similar argument yesterday, pointing out that essential workers in grocery stores and hospitals are doing their jobs.
