There were 2 hearings today regarding Benghazi. Out-going Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the only witness.Some of the GOP thought they were going to take a big piece out of Hillary Clinton today. Many had probably been wanting to for at least 2 decades. It simply didn’t happen.
To set the scene–In the morning Hillary testified before the Senate Committee. Afternoon was the House committee. Its truly amazing to see the narcissism with some of those people. The grandstanding was as expected.
There were several outstanding jerks.
Sen. Ron Johnson on Wednesday knocked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for dodging his questions with “theatrics” during their tense exchange at today’s Benghazi hearing.
“I wasn’t trying to get under her skin, I was just trying to get a relatively simple question answered, which she didn’t really want to answer,” the Wisconsin Republican told Milwaukee radio host Charlie Sykes shortly after the hearing ended.
Basically, Hillary ate his lunch.
Most of the men felt they had every right to interrupt her or talk over her. Are we surprised?
Rep. Duncan was also one of the nastier people. He told her she left those killed in a death trap and strongly implied that Hillary was responsible for their deaths.
Rand Paul was charming. He told her he would fire her if he were her superior. Well Rand Paul, that isn’t really going to happen, now is it?
John McCain didn’t miss a golden opportunity to be disrespectful either.
After watching all day, I asked myself why the rudeness was necessary. I haven’t figured that out yet. Were those men showing off? Did they think they would break Hillary Clinton? It made no sense to me whatsoever.
