Former President Donald Trump can’t help but shake his head at the antics of Congressman Jamaal Bowman. Trump took to Truth Social (the premier platform for truth-telling, by the way) to express his concerns about Bowman’s recent behavior. And let me tell you, folks, it’s a doozy.
According to Trump, Bowman should be locked up for yanking that fire alarm ahead of the government funding vote. Now, some might say that’s a bit harsh, but hey, when you play with fire alarms, you might just get burned – or in this case, jailed.
Bowman, bless his heart, doesn’t deny the act. Nope, he went on tape admitting to pulling that alarm. But get this, he claims it was all a big ol’ whoopsie-daisy. Apparently, he was just trying to open a stubborn door and got a little confused. Now, call me skeptical, but how does one mix up a fire alarm and a door handle? I mean, come on, even a fourth-grader knows the difference!
But hey, let’s give Bowman the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he really did think the fire alarm was the key to unlocking that pesky door. It happens to the best of us, right? Well, maybe not the best of us, but you get my drift.
Now, here’s where the plot thickens. Trump argues that this is more than just a simple act of confusion – oh no, it’s a dangerous obstruction of an official proceeding. That’s right, folks. The former president is drawing parallels between Bowman’s fire alarm shenanigans and the actions of those involved in the January 6th incident. And you know what? He might just have a point.
I mean, think about it. What if everyone started pulling fire alarms whenever they couldn’t figure out a door? Chaos would ensue! And that’s exactly what Trump is getting at. He’s saying, “Hey, if we’re going to go after those January 6th prisoners for obstructing proceedings, shouldn’t we hold Bowman to the same standard?” It’s a fair question, folks. The hypocrisy in this situation is as thick as a New York pizza crust.
So, I believe it’s time for Bowman to face the consequences of his actions. It’s time for justice to be served. And if that means a little jail time, then so be it. Perhaps it’ll be a teachable moment for him and for all the other members of Congress who think they can pull fire alarms with impunity. Let this be a warning, my friends: Mess with the fire alarm, and you might just feel the burn of your own poor choices.
