Democratic strategist James Carville penned a scathing op-ed in the Wall Street Journal this week urging members of his party to blame the spike in violent crime across the USA on the Trump administration.
“From 1993 to 2019, crime steadily decreased in the U.S. Every president since Bill Clinton inherited a declining crime rate and left office with a further decline in crime rate, until Donald J. Trump came along. During Mr. Trump’s final year in office, violent crimes and homicides spiked. Yet if you tuned into Fox News, you’d draw the conclusion that the Democratic Party is opposed to law and order,” writes Carville.
“From beginning to the end, Mr. Trump’s presidency was one long crime wave. He broke laws, obstructed justice and incited violence knowing he wouldn’t be held accountable while in office. Eight of his campaign associates were put in shackles. He pardoned five of them. Corruption became the administration’s oxygen, and Mr. Trump’s stunning display of lawlessness set an example for criminals to crawl out of the shadows and believe they would never be brought to justice. It was also no coincidence that Mr. Trump presided over an all-time low in white-collar crime enforcement,” adds Carville.

CARVILLE ON DEMS: ‘Elizabeth Warren Hates Bloomberg More Than She Wants to Win’
Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville weighed-in Wednesday on the tenth Democratic Debate in South Carolina; saying it’s clear that Elizabeth Warren “hates Michael Bloomberg” more than she wants to win the White House.
“The takeaway is that Elizabeth Warren hates Michael Bloomberg more than she wants to win… I think she doesn’t want to attack Bernie because she’s scared she’s going to get primaried in 2024,” said Carville.

CARVILLE TO DEMOCRATS: ‘We’re Losing Our Damn Minds, I’m Scared to Death, Get Your S*** Together!’
Legendary Democratic strategist James Carville did not mince words when discussing the 2020 contenders in a recent interview; saying he’s “Scared to Death” while telling the party to “Get your s*** together!”
“What’s gone wrong? Who’s responsible?” asked Vox’s Sean Illing.
“It’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here… We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party,” said Carville.

“Most of the people aren’t into all this distracting s*** about open borders and letting prisoners vote. They don’t care. They have lives to lead. They have kids. They have parents that are sick. That’s what we have to talk about. That’s all we should talk about,” he added.
