Why do leftist trolls never understand the problem with their actions or the hypocrisy they constantly show?
We may never really know. Perhaps it’s mental illness or something. Or maybe they’re too dumb to see the truth.
In any case, there never seems to be a shortage of them.
Take self-proclaimed leftist activist Jake Burdett, for instance.
Like most of his kind, he recently tried to start trouble where there was none before.
It happened on Tuesday during a news conference on Capitol Hill. Several Congress members, including Republican Representatives Paul Gosar of Arizona, Lauren Boebert from Colorado, and Louisiana’s Clay Higgins, were all there to discuss the World Health Organization.
Burdett had traveled to the capital with Maryland Progressive Healthcare Coalition in an effort to reintroduce the need for the Medicare for All Act. But apparently, his personal agenda to smear everything not leftist-loving got in the way.
When Burdett and Kristy Fogle, founder of the coalition, stumbled upon the press briefing, Burdett told Fogle that he wanted to ask Boebert a “tough question.” It didn’t seem like a bad idea.
But then, Burdett started getting aggressive, pushing his way to get close to the congressional members and interrupting their press conference.
First, he interrupted, asking Representative Gosar about a completely unrelated thing. Since he was causing a scene, Representative Higgins, a former Louisiana sheriff, came to him and asked him to step aside and quiet down.

Higgins told Burdett, “I’ll make you a deal. Listen, let this man talk, and then I’ll come talk to you privately.”
But Burdett refused. While he remained silent for the rest of Gosar’s speech, he immediately began interrupting again and asking about unrelated things when Boebert took the mic. He even asked her about her divorce and a food poisoning incident at her restaurant from three years ago.
With the deal off, Higgins again made his way to Burdett. But this time, it was to escort him away from the press briefing and into police custody. According to police, this was a code “103M” or “disturbance by a mental person.”
Of course, Burdett sees himself as being wronged in some way, claiming that Higgins “assaulted” him and that he was wrongly “detained.”

Always the victim, never the perpetrator…
