Politicians will do just about anything to avoid talking about certain subjects. Like, for instance, when a domestic terrorist uses convenient lies about Planned Parenthood that were perpetuated by politicians as possible justification to kill three and wound nine. Obviously, no politician who had any part in propagating those lies is going to want to admit they screwed up. So what do they do?
If you’re Ted Cruz, you deflect all criticism by saying the Democrats are the real fans of violent offenders.
