If you like uncomfortable silences, you’ll enjoy this video of Rep. Brian Mast asking for the name of a fallen American service member that didn’t justify the Trump administration’s killing of Qasem Soleimani. After a bit of crickets chirping, Rep. Eliot Engel conceded that Mast had made his point … but Mast was still waiting for that name.
.@RepBrianMast asks for name of fallen service member that doesn't justify Soleimani killing: "I will sit here and wait…"
.@RepEliotEngel: "Thank you, Mr. Mast, I think you've made you're point…"

It’s funny because I thought it was Nadler getting taught respect but instead it was Engel.

Brilliant Mr. Mast! Keep exposing the wickedness of the Communist Democrat Party! God bless!

Did the Democrats end the War on Terror? Didn't think so. This guy was a terrorist doing terrorist things in another country other than his own with 600+ confirmed kills. If he had been anywhere planning an attack…He needed to be off the playing field. And now he is.

Love it! God bless America! This president is not to be played with. God bless the service men.

Exactly, 11 Iranian backed militia attacks in 2 months. Insane anyone thinks we can't defend ourselves.

This is one of OUR veterans who has EARNED the right by not only losing BOTH of his legs in COMBAT but also as a representative. The DISRESPECT shown to him not only ANGERS me but PROVES to me the Democrats have NO business in Congress. #Propaganda #IranvsUSA
