It’s no secret that Democratic Rep. Al Green is an idiot. But for some reason, he apparently feels the need to remind us anyway.
During today’s hearing on Facebook, Green confronted Mark Zuckerberg about diversity — and proceeded to make an ass of himself:

Embarrassing. For Green, not for Zuckerberg.
First he asks about the number of women, and you know who would know that? The guy who was mocked for having binders full of them https://t.co/Pt4ctFJEl5

Why would he know that?

Potential employers aren't even permitted to ask the question. So how would Zuckerberg even know?

That is personal information possibly held by an HR dept on a need to know basis.

Is it legal to collect this information? Is it in any way relevant to the employee's ability to do their job well? JFC, people. https://t.co/IHURfbLuFR

You can't ask your employees about their sexual orientation. What is going on in this Rep's head?!?!

Not a whole hell of a lot, we’d wager.
We should tag every LGBTQ employee… maybe with like a rainbow star or something https://t.co/6QMkjHU1i5

Incredible. What an incredibly unserious man Al Green is.
