More on gaslighting


This from Laura Clawson at Daily Kos:

Jordain Carney and Sarah Ferris put on a masterclass in this single paragraph, the second in their smoking trash heap of an article:

President Joe Biden and his party have spent much of this year vilifying [House Minority Leader Kevin] McCarthy and his GOP counterparts as a threat that would unravel democracy — an attack that is now at the centerpiece of Democratic efforts to hold onto their threadbare congressional majorities. Many of those Republicans, meanwhile, have echoed and amplified unfounded doubts about Biden’s election, all while pledging to use their newfound power to investigate the president’s son and, potentially, impeach members of his Cabinet. “

A question, guys. Which came first: a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol to prevent the peaceful transition of power coupled with 147 congressional Republicans voting against certifying the results of a fairly contested election, or Biden and Democrats vilifying McCarthy and Republicans as a threat to democracy?
