On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) discussed whether Democratic mayors and governors support the rule of law over protests in cities across the country.
"The Democrats don't know of any other way but to politicize anything and everything, and in so doing, try to dump all the blame on the President. And of course, he had nothing to do with this. In fact, he has been the one front and center trying to restore law and order while Democrats have been defending these agitators in all of this and those that have been involved in looting and larceny and all sorts of criminal behavior. You know the hypocrisy is just phenomenal to me across the board in all of this. I mean, two weeks ago, the number one issue was COVID-19, and everyone has to wear a mask and people being arrested for walking in a park or whatever they were doing, whether they were alone. And now you have all these rioters totally ignoring all the social distancing. And there's no mention of it whatsoever. And in fact, many of these various leaders, governors and mayors of primarily blue type cities and states are getting behind the rioters rather than the rule of law. It just is absolutely astounding to me. And the President is trying to restore order. I see a great difficulty in trying to place the blame on him."
