Squad member Cori Bush is being called a hypocrite after advocating to defund the police while shelling out thousands of dollars for personal security.

According to The Daily Wire:

“You faced some criticism in recent weeks over your push to defund the police,” noted one of the anchors. “Campaign records show that you spent roughly $70,000 on private security, and some critics say that move is hypocritical. What’s your response to those critics?”

“I’m going to make sure I have security because I know I have had attempts on my life,” replied Bush after alleging that she experiences death threats from white supremacists. “And I have too much work to do. There are too many people that need help right now for me to allow that. So if I end up spending $200,000, if I spend ten more dollars on it, you know what? I get to be here, to do the work. So suck it up. And defunding the police has to happen; we need to defund the police and put that money into social safety nets, because we’re trying to save lives.”

As The Daily Wire detailed last month, Bush’s campaign spent $54,120.92 between April and June for “security services” to a firm called RS&T Security Consulting. She also paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for “security services” over the same period. She has spent over $100,000 on private security so far this year.

The “Squad” is more concerned about optics than living in reality. They would prefer Americans go without police as the nation endures a historic spike in violent crime but then jump at the opportunity to shell out thousands of taxpayer dollars to protect themselves.

While it’s no surprise Rep. Bush is a hypocrite, this might take the cake.
