If you needed further proof that liberals in media are just looking for excuses to bash Trump, here you go. James Mulvaney, a professor at John Jay College, has written a column for the Washington Post in which he criticizes Trump for using the term ‘Paddy Wagon.’
President Trump’s reference to ‘paddy wagon’ insults Irish Americans like me
The use of the derogatory phrase “paddy wagon” wasn’t the worst thing President Trump said last week. But it shouldn’t get lost amid the litany of objectionable utterances.
In a speech on Long Island Friday, Trump bellowed a series of nonspecific pronouncements regarding his administration’s strategy to combat the deadly street gang MS-13. He provoked the ire of police chiefs across the country with his statements condoning the roughing up of arrestees. “When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon — you just see them thrown in, rough — I said, please don’t be too nice,” Trump riffed. “Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over? Like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody — don’t hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?”
As a teacher of police science, I too feel strongly that prisoner mistreatment is a counterproductive crime-fighting tool and appropriately deemed a felony. The topic was particularly irresponsible when addressing a police department whose former commissioner is serving 46 months in federal prison for roughing up a prisoner.
The left is so desperate to bash Trump they’ll say anything, no matter how dumb it sounds to normal people.
