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 !

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
