Over the weekend Democrat Senator Tammy Duckworth urged Americans to "listen" to those advocating for the removal of monuments to America's first president, George Washington.
"I think we should listen to everybody. I think we should listen to the argument there," she said during an interview on CNN.

As for Duckworth's comments falsely attacking President Trump over his visit to Mt. Rushmore, she didn't used to feel that way about the historic site. She also lied about what Trump actually said during his remarks.

In point of fact, he spent not a single moment talking about dead traitors. But the Democrats and media are sure you won't watch the speech, and that you'll believe the lie. https://t.co/RRf1sw7eWe— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) July 6, 2020
