Acting Asst. Sec. Susan Thornton and EAP team en route to her nomination hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee!
Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) lost his cool during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday.
Franken attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas), who was not present, but fellow Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R.) objected to Franken's comments. At the hearing, the committee was discussing moving forward Sen. Jeff Sessions' (R., Ala.) nomination to be the next attorney general.
"I object to the senator disparaging a fellow member of the committee here in his absence," Cornyn said of Franken's comments.
"Well, he should be here first of all, and secondly, he disparaged me, senator!" Franken yelled over Cornyn.
After committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) paused the confrontation, Cornyn raised his objection. Following Cornyn's remakrs, an aggravated Franken responded by again going after Cruz.
I've lived through the Clintons, I've lived through the Snow Flake Repulicans, I've lived through the Obamas and to be absolutely honest I am ready to go to war against these traitors to the United States of America ! There is a good number of us old Farts, veterans and non veterans, that love the values that this country was founded on and I believe that most of us have lived long and satisfying lives, and I personally am willing to give the rest of it to protect those values ! Some Ding Bat ! suggested a Military Coup against this administration, LOL , Bring it on !
I'm with you.
Franken needs to take his pacifier and go home. Our country is surely in danger when trash like this gets elected.
He went from a Stand up Comic to a sit down Joke !
