NYPD Commissioner Goes Off on Pols Who ‘Prostitute Themselves’ to the NRA

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton expressed his frustration on Morning Joe today at how nothing has been done on gun control after multiple mass shootings.

Bratton first took note of the many Muslim officers in the NYPD––”ironically many of them are probably guarding Mr. Trump outside of his building”––and all the gay offices serving as well.

Mike Barnicle then asked him about his thoughts on the Senate “neglecting to do its duties” on gun control, and Bratton said this:

“Shame on them. Shame on them that they are totally beholden––they prostitute themselves in front of the NRA. They put the interest of their own political careers and that of the NRA ahead of the American people.”

He said people shouldn’t be holding their breath for this Congress to take action, and asked, “Who goes hunting with an assault weapon?”
