On Wednesday, a gaggle of chicken-headed Republican officials decided to breach national security in the hopes of upping their “Q ratings,” in their respective districts. As the walls begin to close in on their corrupt commander and chief, far-right Freedom Caucus representatives are freaking out that their low IQ, fringe minds will lose the scraps of power they’ve been able to grovel and get these past couple of years. Led by Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida, best known for threatening witnesses with information he should not technically have and thinking the term “Kangaroo Court” was derived from the children’s show Captain Kangaroo, this cauldron of narcissism made a lot of to do about nothing.
Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski of New Jersey is a former diplomat but he decided that diplomacy was not the best way to deal with petty political theater. Asked by reporters about Wednesday’s kerfuffle, Rep. Molinowski gave a withering explanation.
REP. TOM MALINOWSKI: It’s a bunch of Freedom Caucus members having pizza around a conference table pretending to be brave. All they did was storm a castle they already occupy. Because the Republicans are in the room asking questions. Republicans who are members of these three committees. If they want to know what is going on, they can ask their colleagues.
And that’s what is happening.
