Surprise: Dem Wont Accept Consequences For Her Actions, Blames The GOP

California Dem, Rep. Linda Sanchez doesn’t want to accept the consequences of her actions after the poor-sport Democrat was caught on camera giving the middle finger to the Republicans sitting in the dugout at Thursday’s Congressional Baseball Game. At first, Sanchez lied and claimed that she was giving the finger to a heckling fan but camera angles determined that was a lie. Now she blames her behaviour on the GOP but refused to offer any details.

Sanchez, who was slammed by both sides, said in a statement Friday that she “heard an offensive and misogynistic comment from the Republican side” and reacted “in the heat of the moment.” While the California Democrat did not say where on the GOP side she heard the comment, she did not deny that it came from a lawmaker.

“It wasn’t the team. It was an obnoxious fan who shouts misogynistic s*** at me every single year,” she said, adding that “it’s the same guy” every year.

Asked what specifically the man said, Sanchez conveniently resolved to take the ‘higher ground’, saying: “I’m not going to dignify it with a response because it’s nasty and it’s crude, and it has no place at a charity baseball game.”

Never mind that the lying Dem told NBC News’s Frank Thorp that she wasn’t giving the middle finger to Republicans but an ‘obnoxious fan’—So which is it?

“It wasn’t the team. It was an obnoxious fan who shouts misogynistic s*** at me every single year,” she said, adding that “it’s the same guy” every year.

“If the Republican women would have stood up and said that’s not acceptable instead of, you know, trashing me for my response, then we might have a place where there’s no misogyny that’s tolerated by anybody anywhere,” she added of the criticism she faced.

Sanchez said in her original statement that “the Congressional Baseball Game is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s a great cause and brings both sides of the aisle together for a night off from partisan politics. That is why it really struck a nerve when I heard an offensive and misogynistic comment from the Republican side on my way back to the dugout. In the heat of the moment, I reacted.”

“I have no tolerance for men who make women feel like they are unimportant or don’t belong — especially on the field,” she said. “I will always stand against that kind of bigotry.”

Watch

Just in case you didn’t see the game, the Republican party won. The GOP shut out the game, 10-0 at Nationals Parks in Washington, D.C. —As they usually do.
