Pressley calls McConnell the ‘common enemy’ during mass shootings

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., declared Senate Majority Chief Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was the “common enemy” throughout mass shootings throughout her Monday night time look on “The Daily Show.”

After claiming that President Trump’s rhetoric is “exactly why” the El Paso mass taking pictures came about earlier this month, Pressley agreed with “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who instructed that weapons are the “common factor” in mass shootings.

“Yes, guns are the common factor and the common enemy in all of this is Mitch McConnell,” Pressley stated, which sparked applause from the viewers. “So please give him a call and tell him I sent you.”

She continued, “Why haven’t we acted? This gun violence is a public health crisis and epidemic. It’s an urban issue, it’s a rural issue, it’s a suburban issue, it’s transcendent… it is pervasive and it is growing.”

The “Squad” member went on to reward New Zealand for “banning assault weapons” shortly after its mass taking pictures in March and blamed inaction within the U.S. on “a deficit of political courage and leadership.”

“We need to hold two narratives: there are mass shootings and there’s community-based violence. And we also know that there’s more guns than people,” Pressley advised Noah. “And as long as that’s the case, you are going to see an intersectionality of violence.”

Final week, protestors gathered outdoors McConnell’s dwelling, the place one known as for him to be stabbed within the coronary heart.
