Rep. Cori Bush on Tuesday blasted House Republicans who ignored the new metal detectors that were installed in US Capitol in the aftermath of the deadly riots on January 6.
During an appearance on the MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes,” the first-term Missouri Democrat expressed disbelief at how several GOP lawmakers chose to flout the enhanced security rules that mandated screening for entry to the House floor.
“First of all, we’re talking about your job,” Bush said. “Let’s just look at it from the most basic level. If you work at McDonald’s, you have to wear the uniform or you’re not working today.

She added: “I don’t know, have they ever had a job before?”
