Rep. Steve Scalise's recent cowardice is part of a long and very ugly history

On Sunday, “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace asked House Minority Whip Steve Scalise a simple question: “Do you think the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump?”

It shouldn’t have taken Scalise more than a fraction of a second to respond.

To the reasonable person, the correct answer has two letters. To those who are either unmoored from reality or are unabashed liars, the answer has three. It shouldn’t have taken Scalise more than a fraction of a second to respond. But in his vain attempt to find a piece of solid ground between a yes and a no, he responded and responded and responded for more than two minutes, slipping out of every attempt Wallace made to force him into a definitive answer.

Scalise went on and on about how the election was problematic because some states operated under rules that were put in place by the courts and not those states’ legislatures. He didn’t mention that Covid-19 emergency election rules were in place in his own state and that they were imposed by a federal judge who ruled that the Republican-controlled Louisiana Legislature’s refusal to accommodate voters at risk of serious illness or death from Covid “is likely unconstitutional because it imposes an undue burden on Plaintiffs’ right to vote.”

He also forgot to mention that the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, whose building might as well be inscribed with “Abandon all hope, ye liberals who enter here,” declined a post-election request by the state’s Republican leaders to bar federal judges from making similar future rulings.

2. The guy must have suffered brain damage but perhaps not. His actions indeed reflect

a very ugly pattern of denial and willing ignorance as to who won the election (confirmed repeatedly by multiple Courts who denied over 60 lawsuits brought by trump and his cohorts. I'd say its time to quit coddling the traitors and start arresting them all, for treason. Haul them into Court, have them suffer the consequences of their traitorous actions on 1/6/21 in full force.
