Watching Trey Gowdy use his masterful skills as a former federal prosecutor is a performance worthy of a Clarence Darrow, and much like the famed statesman, noted orator, and three-time presidential candidate, Gowdy embodies that same down home southern wit that was Darrow’s trademark which gained him the title as a “sophisticated country lawyer.”
The 5-plus minute video clip captures Gowdy skillfully taking apart a Black Lives Matter advocate and ethnic studies professor, as he skillfully takes her through a civics lesson, and demonstrates why he is considered one of the most brilliant and highly regarded lawmakers within congress today.
Gowdy who represents South Carolina’s 4th congressional district respectfully began referencing names of fallen police officers and asked the anti police professor if she recalled any of those names being referenced, and time and again the professor answered no she did not, which prompted Gowdy to describe the various incident’s of police being assaulted or killed in the line of duty, in one particular encounter Gowdy describes how a police officer was giving CPR to a suspect who had just shot his partner.
He also referenced why many crimes involving African-Americans within the inner city are seldom resolved, stating that many times witnesses refuse to come forward to testify.
There’s little doubt that although this professor came to Capital Hill to spout her anti police nonsense, she probably didn’t count on a no-nonsense and factual analyses of what is taking place across the country, and within the inner cities.
