By  | 

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Early morning Joe,” Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC) weighed in on Wednesday’s shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, VA that led to Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) in crucial condition at a medical facility in Washington, DC.Sanford stated we were”at an inflection point “and we required to return to civility, or wind up in a”very, extremely bad spot. “”Undoubtedly, we’re at an inflection point, “Sanford said.” There are forces at play I’ve never ever seen prior to in roughly the 20 years I have actually been involved in politics. Joe and I was available in together method back when. And it is certainly different. I think we have to beware as a society since if we don’t beware, civility is indeed a part of civilized federal government and an open political system. And if you let these forces play out, I believe we wind up at a very, very bad spot. I believe what took place yesterday was symptomatic of it. “He went on to blame President Donald Trump in part for the poisonous environment that led to this

shooting.” [I] would argue that the president is at least in partially– not in any way absolutely– but partly to blame for devils that have been unleashed, whether it is exactly what I saw at a senior center back home and people saying,’f-you, f-you and f-you ‘to each other at a senior center, a retirement center and see each other play croquet the next day, or with what took place– not with what occurred the other day, but the truth that you know, you have actually got the leading guy stating,’Well, I wish I could strike you in the face. And if not, why don’t you and I’ll pay your legal costs. ‘That’s unusual– we ought to call it as such. “
