Democrat Lets It Slip – Watch What She Says Instead of ‘Stopped,’ Forced to Correct Herself

Stacey Plaskett, a nonvoting delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives from the Virgin Islands, caused controversy with her recent remarks that appeared to suggest harm towards former President Donald Trump. During an appearance on MSNBC, while discussing Trump’s indictment, Plaskett expressed concerns about Trump having access to classified information and sharing it at his resort, stating, “he needs to be shot — stopped.”

While it can be argued that Plaskett did not mean her words literally, this incident reflects a pattern of aggressive behavior. In a House Judiciary Committee hearing in March, she had a heated exchange with GOP Rep. Mike Johnson when he attempted to submit a letter to the record. Plaskett insisted that the author of the document should be present for the examination, and in a display of frustration, she threw the document at Johnson, reported Daily Mail.

Former NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik expressed concerns about potential harm to Trump, stating that he had heard discussions suggesting the left might consider assassination if they couldn’t prevent him from running in 2024. Kerik’s comments echoed similar worries raised by former Secret Service agent and political commentator Dan Bongino.

The unequal treatment of such remarks based on political affiliation is highlighted. If a Republican had made a similar slip about President Joe Biden or any Democratic Party member, it would likely not be overlooked or dismissed. Recent instances of parents being investigated as “domestic terrorists” for perceived threats against school board officials further underline this disparity.

It remains a matter of speculation whether Plaskett’s comment was a Freudian slip or an intentional appeal to a far-left MSNBC audience. Nonetheless, one can only wonder about the reaction had a similar slip has been made regarding a former president from the Democratic Party.
