It took Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) only 30 seconds to justify spending $200,000 for her security while calling for yours to be taken away.  

During an interview with CBS News Wednesday, the liberal congresswoman advocated for her protection, which she said could cost $200,000, so she can continue her efforts to defund the police.  

“I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life. And I have too much work to do, there are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that,” she said. “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.”

According to the National Review, Bush spent nearly $70,000 over the last three months on personal security.  

Bush was slammed for her comments.

Ex-NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly slammed Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., Friday for making one of the most “stupidest political moves ever” noting that her stance is not supported by the vast majority of Americans.
