Not even the attempted assassination of Republican members of Congress by a raging leftist will get Democrats to stop using violent rhetoric against their political opponents.

During a Facebook live event with Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden on Wednesday, DNC vice chair and Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison complimented Tanden by telling the audience, “She kills, slays, fights ’em every single day,” referring to Republicans.


“I’m proud of you Neera,” he added.
