The field of 2020 Democrats are pandering like crazy heading into the Iowa caucuses early next year, but few are pandering harder on Twitter than Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand:
5 years ago, a Ferguson police officer killed Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager.
He shot him 6 times.
Nothing will bring Michael back, but we can't stop fighting the injustice done to his family and so many others—and until we do better, we're failing them.

We’re surprised she didn’t also assume the “hands up don’t shoot” pose that was a liberal narrative favorite at the time:

You’ve shifted into super pandering mode. To hell with facts, whatever it takes right?

DNA evidence on the officers gun proved Michael Brown was trying to grab his gun. Michael Brown was fleeing a scene where he robbed a store and assaulted a store worker. https://t.co/k8RQnWVlh7

An unarmed man, who attempted to become armed by going for the officers weapon. Tell the truth.

The truth? Gillibrand doesn’t seem all that concerned by the truth.
