Democrat State Senator and CA Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de Leon recently called House Democrats “morally repugnant” and “un-American” for singing on the House floor. It appears he may have mistaken them for Republicans. The video is below:
However, all sources show that it was, in fact, the Democrats who sang on the house floor.
It is not yet known if he will stand by his comments or if he will quickly reverse his statement when it comes to greater public publicity. Perhaps it was a slip of the tongue, though even in that case it would showcase a certain level of political obliviousness. On the other hand, if he takes back his comments the moment he realizes it was done by Democrats then what kind of message would that send?
