Maryland's Governor Doesn't Have Time For The Gop's Talk About The Dei Bridge Collapse

Republicans have said that the fatal collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore was caused by attempts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). But Maryland Gov. Wes Moore (D) has shot those claims down.

Moore talked about conservatives who have used DEI to attack Black officials like Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott and Maryland Port Commissioner Karenthia A. Barber after the collapse killed two construction workers and left four others missing, with their deaths still unknown. Moore said this in an interview with CNN on Sunday.

Dara Bash of CNN asked Moore about the threats on “State of the Union.” Moore said, “My answer is I have no time for foolishness.”

Parts of the collapsed bridge are being taken away by workers while rescue work is done at the scene of the accident.

Because of “how complex this operation is,” the governor told NPR on Sunday, there is no set date for when the four missing people will be found.

Critics use the term “DEI” because they don’t have the “courage to say the N-word” was brought up by Scott. Bash then asked Moore if the attacks were racist.

Moore answered, “My main goal is to make sure that these families get the comfort and closure they need.”

“Making sure that our first responders are getting the help they need,” he said next. Make sure that these lines can be opened and that this Key Bridge can be fixed up. To be honest, I don’t have time to do anything else. I’m locked in and thinking about what’s important right now.

Moore is going to go with Joe Biden with the president to Baltimore this week.
