A day after it was reported that Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) would be allowed to bring her newborn daughter Maile Pearl Bowlsbey onto the Senate floor if necessary, a conservative pundit for Turning Point USA lamented the impact that baby could have on future legislation that might affect children and mothers.

“I agree with their statements on “decorum.” Not because I have a problem with babies at the workplace, but because I have issues with Duckworth potentially being able to weaponize that baby to affect legislative decision making. And I could see her doing that,” Mills tweeted.

The psychology of protesters — and the psychology of people who hate them

Published

It is hard to imagine that anyone who watched the horrific video of George Floyd being asphyxiated by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin would come away feeling empathy for the police force that stood by and let it happen.
