Squad member Cori Bush is being called a hypocrite after advocating to defund the police while shelling out thousands of dollars for personal security.

According to The Daily Wire:

“You faced some criticism in recent weeks over your push to defund the police,” noted one of the anchors. “Campaign records show that you spent roughly $70,000 on private security, and some critics say that move is hypocritical. What’s your response to those critics?”

“I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life,” replied Bush after alleging that she experiences death threats from white supremacists. “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 ten more dollars on it, you know what? I get to be here, to do the work. So suck it up. And defunding the police has to happen; we need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets, because we’re trying to save lives.”

As The Daily Wire detailed last month, Bush’s campaign spent $54,120.92 between April and June for “security services” to a firm called RS&T Security Consulting. She also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for “security services” over the same period. She has spent over $100,000 on private security so far this year.

The “Squad” is more concerned about optics than living in reality. They would prefer Americans go without police as the nation endures a historic spike in violent crime but then jump at the opportunity to shell out thousands of taxpayer dollars to protect themselves.

While it’s no surprise Rep. Bush is a hypocrite, this might take the cake.

YOu don’t give 2 s..ts about the ordinary man as you think your elite and that is a joke.

It has something to do with irrational thinking. How you can take two contrary positions at the same time and actually believe in both. This is how they can call conservatives NAZIS while they actually act like the Nazis.
Call yourself ANTIFA while acting like marxists.

What does Corie have to fear? She is safe and the citizens are at risk. She doesn’t give a hoot about her constituents all she cares about like every other radical is power. Get rid of her before she does more damage. What does she call black on black murders, is that her fault or the fault of the police. If I were a police person, I wouldn’t have her back either.

Cori Bush should change the shirt to read, “Y’all stop killing each other” Many more blacks kill other blacks and also whites and also police officers. Ms Bush is just another loud mouth and I really don’t understand why the people in MO elected her.
