Rep. Jamaal Bowman is facing yet another political dumpster fire after he yanked a fire alarm and set off panic inside a House office building over the weekend.
The working theory is that Bowman was trying to delay a House vote on a continuing resolution to fund the federal government.

Conservative were enraged and demanded that Bowman face the full force of the law for his illegal actions. In response to that the progressive lawmaker concocted talking points to push back.
His office released a memorandum urging Democrats to come to his defense and to refer to his Republican critics as Nazis.
The memo was titled, “Messaging Guidance: Supporting Congressman Jamaal Bowman After Accidental Fire Alarm.”
“I believe Congressman Bowman when he says this was an accident. Republicans need to instead focus their energy on the Nazi members of their party before anything else,” one of the talking points read.
Other talking points included:
- “It is an extreme reach on the part of MAGA Republicans to assert that Rep. Bowman intended to harm or destruct anyone or thing. The exact opposite is true: He was trying to do his job.”
- “It’s clear my colleague Congressman Bowman was simply rushing to the floor to cast his vote to prevent a shutdown and support working class families.”
- “There are multiple insurrectionist supporters in Congress and more who supported a coup and support Trump’s Big Lie. That’s what they should be focused on. Instead, their focus on Rep. Bowman is an attempt to minimize January 6th.”
Bowman pretty much threw his own staff under the bus after the memo caused outrage across both sides of the aisle.
“I just became aware that in our messaging guidance, there was inappropriate use of the term Nazi without my consent,” Bowman wrote on Twitter. “I condemn the use of the term Nazi out of its precise definition. It is important to specify the term Nazi to refer to members of the Nazi party & neo-Nazis.”
