Of course, Rep. Angie Craig (D-Minn.) was just having a “bad morning” when she was assaulted in her Washington, D.C., apartment building and it wasn’t politically motivated. Sure thing.

It’s always so refreshing to hear about a political figure getting physically attacked and it being completely unconnected to their political beliefs and actions. I mean, who wouldn’t want to live in a world where politicians can wander the streets without a care in the world, completely unaffected by the opinions and actions of those around them? It’s almost like we live in a utopia or something.
Rep. Angie Craig was assaulted on Thursday morning in her Washington, D.C., apartment building and, of course, it wasn’t politically motivated. Her chief of staff, Nick Coe, said that the attack was just a little scuffle and Rep. Craig was able to defend herself and only suffered some bruises. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
According to Coe, there’s no evidence that the attack was politically motivated. Well, that’s a relief. I was starting to think that maybe, just maybe, politicians were vulnerable to the same dangers and threats as the rest of us mere mortals. But no, they’re immune, at least according to Coe.
Rep. Craig told reporters on Capitol Hill that she was having a “bad morning,” but didn’t go into further detail. I mean, who wouldn’t have a bad morning after being physically attacked? It’s not like it’s a traumatic experience or anything.
And with that, we can all rest easy knowing that our politicians are completely safe from any form of physical harm, no matter what they do or say. What a wonderful world we live in.
