It’s amazing Pramila Jayapal would say this
Among the things overhead by Capitol Hill Seattle Blog during a recent town hall was Congressmember Pramila Jayapal telling student leaders to “never lead with facts.”
The comment was made while discussing activism during a closed-door session, the Capitol Hill Blog reports.
“Facts will never drive anybody to make a decision, but you need to have them. Never lead with the facts. They’ll believe your heart, but not the facts,” Jayapal says, according to the Capitol Hill Blog.
It’s amazing she would say that. It’s true. But it’s still amazing she would openly tell students that.
Think about the importance of what she is saying. This is a member of Congress telling a bunch of children that they should learn to lead with emotion over facts. You get more people on your side if you do so.
