(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday morning, acting Attorney General Matthew Whittaker gave an explosive testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
Whitaker immediately trolled Chairman Jerry Nadler when he reminded Nadler that his “five minutes is up” when questioning him.
He set his sights on Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, who was promptly triggered b Whitaker’s humor.
Regurgitating tired Democratic talking points, Jackson Lee brought up the fact that Whitaker was never confirmed by the Senate, then asked the ludicrous question as to whether or not he had ever appeared in front of an oversight committee—demanding he only answer “yes” or “no.”
Whitaker refused to adhere to the “yes” or “no” format, so Nadler and Jackson Lee accused him of stalling to use up the Congresswoman’s time.
Jackson Lee then repeated her question to Whitaker, who just looked around.
Sheila Jackson Lee repeated her stupid question to Whitaker quipped that he didn’t know if her time had been restored or not, which she had been asking about just prior. At this point Sheila Jackson Lee got triggered by Whitaker’s trolling.
“Mr. Attorney General, we’re not joking here. And your humor is not acceptable,” Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said.
Even after her scolding, Whitaker refused to answer in a “yes” or “no.”
Whitaker clearly knows that Barr will be confirmed as Trump’s new Attorney General, and used the opportunity to simply mock the Democrats for their absurd party politics.
