We Could Not Make This Up

Jason Ouimet, ED of the NRA’s lobbying arm, explains that the 172 Republicans who voted against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act aren’t anti-women — they were fighting a horrible plot to make them look bad! “Pelosi and anti-gun lawmakers chose to insert gun control provisions into this bill in 2019 to pit pro-gun lawmakers against it so that they can falsely and maliciously claim these lawmakers don’t care about women. Sure, hon, that’s why we want to keep domestic abusers from getting guns — Devin Nunes, just keep telling yourself that.
