By now we have seen numerous examples of Democrats who call for defunding the police, then turn around and get private security for themselves.
In Missouri, Dem Rep. Cori Bush is the craziest example.
She has spent tens of thousands on security for herself but continues to insist that the police must be defunded.
Radical Democrat Defends Having Private Security…While Arguing to ‘Defund the Police’
Congresswoman Cori Bush (D-MO) made a strange argument for defunding the police while defending her own expenditures on private security.
“I’m gonna make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life. And I have too much work to do, there are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that. So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend 10 more dollars on it, you know what, I get to be here to do the work. So suck it up,” Bush said on CBS News. “Defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets.”
Bush’s hypocritical defense comes just weeks after President Joe Biden accused Republicans who argue that Democrats want to defund the police of “lying.” President Biden himself once said that police have potential to “become the enemy” and that he is “absolutely” open to to discussing defunding law enforcement.

This goes beyond hypocrisy.
Cori Bush thinks the issue of her own personal safety and the issue of the personal safety of everyone else are totally separate and that it's outrageous to even bring them up in the same context. https://t.co/tYouD3DI5p
