They say the the people in Congress are civil to each other even when they disagree….with such politeness as “gentlemen” and “gentle ladies”….when referring to each other……and then you have the MORONS like the Yahoo from Florida…..
Tensions flared on Capitol Hill this week when a Republican lawmaker challenged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on issues of crime and policing in an unusual — and decidedly personal — confrontation on the Capitol steps.
Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) was coming down the steps on the east side of the Capitol on Monday, having just voted, when he approached Ocasio-Cortez, who was ascending into the building to cast a vote of her own.
In a brief but heated exchange, which was overheard by a reporter, Yoho told Ocasio-Cortez she was “disgusting” for recently suggesting that poverty and unemployment are driving a spike in crime in New York City during the coronavirus pandemic.
“You are out of your freaking mind,” Yoho told her.
Ocasio-Cortez shot back, telling Yoho he was being “rude.”
The two then parted ways. Ocasio-Cortez headed into the building, while Yoho, joined by Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas), began descending toward the House office buildings. A few steps down, Yoho offered a parting thought to no one in particular.
“Fucking bitch,” he said.
These people demand respect from others yet they allow a bonehead like Yoho to exist as a Congressman…..seems okay since it is Florida we are talking about.
These are the times we live in……no civility (evident here as well as the House)…..
We need to rid ourselves of toads and slugs in the government…..in other words…..
