"Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs"?

Washington Post

If Attorney General William P. Barr is worried about being held in contempt of Congress, he didn’t show it Wednesday.

At an event outside the West Front of the Capitol honoring slain law enforcement officers, Barr approached House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who last week joked about locking up members of the Trump administration in “a jail down in the basement of the Capitol.”

According to a person who witnessed the exchange, Barr shook Pelosi’s hand and said loudly, “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?”

Pelosi smiled and responded that the House sergeant at arms was present should it be necessary to arrest anyone, the person said, adding that Barr “chuckled and walked away.

4. What a dumb thing for Barr to say.

Bet he didn’t anticipate our Speaker’s smart response. I sense a foreshadowing of when Barr, wearing pink bunny pajamas, is yanked out of bed in the middle of the night by the Capitol Police and frogmarched off in disgrace.

That's why you don't allow shit like this to go on and not even try to do anything about it.

14. "Complacency" on the part of who?

You think that Barr chuckling is "emboldened?"



It's little boy posturing. Please.

Pelosi is not allowing "shit" to go on with no consequences. Are you sure that you're on the right board?

25. He was trying to rattle her. She didn't take the bait.

Trump "throws it" in everyone's face - does that mean he thinks that he's actually winning?

He and Barr are nervous. She's doing her job. Period.

You can try to see it some other way, if you'd like, but that's what happened.

You seem to think that this disrepect was "earned" by Pelosi.

What Barr did was disrespectful. Arrogant. Pure bravado. Almost taunting her. In line with the way all these russiapublican tools have been testifying. Like they can't be touched.

Where did I say anything about Pelosi having "earned" that??

Wow, that's quite a leap. Maybe you need to turn the pc or phone off for a while and take a break from the internet. Wow.

I don't "care to back that up" and I don't care to engage you further either.

"Heat"? From your post?

That's hilarious coming from the poster -you- who took my comment completely out of context to justify a very silly and very defensive reply to it.

You leaped to quite frankly, a very stupid conclusion. Nowhere in my initial post did I imply anything even remotely close to any Dem having "deserved" Barr's question to Pelosi. So there's no nerve to be touched, no criticism to any Dem to validate.

Come on internet warrior, you can do it. Put down your weapons (phone, tablet, or laptop) and take a hike in the woods, or a park. Too funny.

Ok, you win. I give up. I'm guilty of writing a post which went over your head and you feel the need to go to cyber war for to defend your strangely incorrect position. I won't take any more of your time as I'm sure there's other cyber battles you need to attend to.
