The Louisiana lawmaker began, “I’ve been very clear in speaking out against any kind of political rhetoric that incites violence. The fact that Speaker Pelosi covered for her — she was trying to incite violence and, in fact, there is violence going on right now in Minnesota because of her actions.”

The GOP congressman continued, “I’ve been very clear in speaking out against any kind of political rhetoric that incites violence,” he said. “The fact that Speaker Pelosi covered for her — she was trying to incite violence and, in fact, there is violence going on right now in Minnesota because of her actions.”

The obvious question to be asked of Scalise was if he though Trump’s insurrection inciting comments were worse than Waters.

“No!” he replied. “In fact, President Trump used the words peaceful when he talked about the statements that he made. I haven’t heard Maxine saying anything about peacefully protesting. She’s talked about violence, she’s talked about — I think the word is, ‘Get more confrontational in the streets’ if the verdict goes the wrong way. There’s nothing peaceful about that.
