He just made a big mistake.
According to Breitbart News, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries attacked Republicans stating that they are leaning towards an “autocracy.”
“[I]t’s just shameful — the display of arrogance, the lack of patriotism, facts don’t matter, and hypocrisy is not a constraint to behavior as it relates to what we’re seeing out of House Republicans at this particular point in time,” Jeffries advised. “As Democrats, we’re trying to move the country forward. They are trying to turn back the clock. We’re working to bring people together. They are tearing us apart.”
He added, “We believe in democracy. They appear to be all about autocracy. We’re trying to get things done — The American Rescue plan, American jobs plan, American families plan with great leadership from President Biden and Speaker Pelosi — and they’re in the midst of a reckless civil war and about to oust Liz Cheney.” You can watch a clip of Jeffries’s remarks here.
