Former Pence Staffer Schools Michigan’s Own Lying Hillary

Turns out, there’s another Hillary out there spreading lies. Now worries, this one met her match.

Marc Short, the former chief of staff for then-Vice President Mike Pence, did just that this past Sunday on the CNN panel show, “State of the Union”. When Democratic Michigan Rep. Hillary Scholten asked “What have Republicans done about it?” Short was quick to respond with, “Come on, stop it.”

It seems as if Democrats are always trying to place the blame on Republicans for the increase in gun violence, but the truth of the matter is that they are the ones in power in the majority of inner cities—which tend to have the highest rate of crime and gun violence. As Short put it, “The vast majority of inner cities are Democrat-controlled, as you know.”

But is that really the truth? According to studies, blue cities tend to have the highest amount of crime in comparison to red cities. Karen Finney, a CNN political commentator, argued that crime rates are higher in red states than in blue states.

The Republican-led bill includes slashes in funding to the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Bureau of Prisons, supposedly causing them to layoff agents. Republicans have scoffed at the White House’s attempts to compare funding cuts with the firing of federal agents.

The Democratic response? To increase law enforcement on the streets and fund the police. But is this the best solution?

It seems as if Democrats are more interested in playing the blame game than finding real solutions. And while they’re busy pointing fingers, those living in high-crime cities—most of which are Democrat-controlled—are the ones who suffer.

It’s time for Republicans to stand up and push back against Democrats and their attempt to deflect from the real problem: their high-crime cities.

We need to focus on finding real solutions and implementing policies that will help reduce gun violence. We need to look at the root of the problem and figure out why these cities are still suffering from high crime rates.


We need to invest in these communities, strengthen law enforcement presence, and provide resources to those who need it most. We need to focus on prevention, education, and job creation. We need to invest in mental health services and work to end the cycle of poverty.

It’s time to stop the blame game and start finding real solutions. It’s time to take a stand and push back against Democrats and their high-crime cities.
