The White House called the senate a bunch of “cowards.”
Politico reported: The White House laced into Senate Republicans as “cowards” on Tuesday morning for voting down four different gun control amendments in the wake of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
“What we saw last night on the floor of the United States Senate was a shameful display of cowardice,” press secretary Josh Earnest said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The reason that I describe it as cowardice is I don’t know what else to call it. Cowards are people who talk really tough in the hope that they will not be asked to actually act and do something. And the truth is that’s exactly what Republicans have done.”
