Attorney General William Barr is testifying before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday, and he was dressed down by Rep. Pramila Jayapal for not sending in federal troops when white men with guns and swastikas stormed the Michigan capitol over the governor’s lockdown restrictions, claiming that Barr did nothing because those white men were simply carrying out President Trump’s agenda.

Remarkable for its stupidity.

She wasn’t anywhere near factually correct

The Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig was pretty impressed by Jayapal’s performance, though.

There’s a difference?

The Washington Post has journalists?

If you're going to be so darned technical, okay: "Democratic operatives with journalism degrees."

She basically called him a white nationalist. He showed such restraint by not responding.

Good to see folks are still campaigning for that VP gig.

Jayapal's district is Seattle….home of CHAZ/CHOP…..these are not serious people.

People actually died from gun violence in CHAZ/CHOP, while not a shot was fired in Michigan as those white men “stormed the capitol.” How quickly was Barr supposed to have deployed federal law enforcement to Michigan, though, especially when the protesters weren’t breaking any laws in a state building?
We said journalists (plural) in the headline, because CNN’s Jim Acosta retweeted Leonnig’s tweet:
CNN “reporter” Jim Acosta retweeting a quote tweet from Washington Post “reporter” Carol Leonnig sharing a video tweet fellating a Democrat congresswoman’s hacky partisan attack from a former Daily Beast “reporter.”

It’s the new, “She persisted.”
Rep. Jayapal is very Triggered by the Activation of AG Bill Barr.

Is the Congresswoman unable to grasp the difference between federal and state property? SMH
— Kelly Nash?️ (@KellyNashRadio) July 28, 2020
House Judiciary member cannot distinct the difference between federal and state responsibility. She is not a serious a member.
— Ahk (@Notoriousgib76) July 28, 2020
Yeah, the idea that there's a racial bias because they didn't send in federal officers to a protest where there was literally not one injury or any property damage but did when people are being dragged from cars and beaten, stores being burnt down, etc…….TINY bit of a stretch

How someone could twist what is going on in this country into that is beyond me. What I learned though, is that the media and democrats twist everything to sound like this, but reality is NOT EVEN close to this. @RepJayapal

Borderline show trial
She represents Seattle how are things going there?

It's all for the sound bites. They've crafted what they say so that it looks good when MSM dishonestly reports on this. The MSM won't show that Barr never had a chance to answer.
— Ron Mexico (@DblWhiskyNeat) July 28, 2020
It's clear that this is not an inquiry or hearing. The Dems are not asking questions nor listening.
It should be called a Lib Soundbite Contest.
— Peace through… (@timthenurse) July 28, 2020
Rep. Jaypal actually said, "I'm losing my temper" at the Barr hearing. This screeching lunatic represents why the Democrats need to reform if they want to be taken seriously. Their aggressive, tyrannical and combative attitude is disgusting. #WalkAway #FoxNews
— ?Sara_BARISTA? (@Sara_BARISTA) July 28, 2020
These people are so unprofessional. It’s embarrassing. There are far more intelligent people of diverse backgrounds who should be leading our country. Jayapal is bottom of the barrel. No wonder we are in trouble.

The majority of the voters of Washington sent this clown to represent them. Let that sink in.
— Tom Casey (@06Tomcasey) July 28, 2020
And it looks like the journalists watching on TV were pretty impressed with the voters’ choice.
