Remember yesterday, when GOP Sen. John Kennedy read aloud over some of Comptroller of the Currency nominee Saule Omarova’s communist bona fides and then politely confessed that he wasn’t sure whether to refer to Omarova as “professor” or “comrade”?
Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA): “I don’t know whether to call you professor or comrade.”
Someone off-camera: “Oh my goodness.”
