Top Democrat Flips Out When Morning Joe Asks Him About Socialism And Defunding The Police (VIDEO)

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney is a Democrat from New York who also serves as the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

He appeared on Morning Joe on Friday and things did not go smoothly.

Joe Scarborough asked him how Democrats are going to handle questions about socialism and defunding the police. Maloney became very defensive and accused Scarborough of pushing Republican talking points.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Maloney, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was pressed by Scarborough repeatedly about Democratic messaging on the issue of defunding the police in 2020, to which Maloney said the party was committed to fighting racial injustice.

“My argument is what are you doing about racial justice?” Maloney asked. “Our party is going to do something about it.”

Scarborough pushed back.

“It’s not the question that I’m asking, it’s the question that Republicans will continue to ask, do Democrats support defunding the police?” Scarborough asked.

Maloney responded by saying the host was “repeating Republican talking points.”

“The answer is no,” Maloney responded. “And you are asking the question and you’re repeating a Republican talking point for reasons I don’t know.”

Watch the video:

It’s funny when Maloney claims that no one is calling for the defunding of police. Has he met anyone in his own party?

Democrats are vulnerable in 2022. This is just one reason why.
