CNN Panel Drags Nadler and Democrats for ‘Offensive’ and ‘Inappropriate’ Behavior During Hicks Hearing

A CNN panel spared House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and other Democrats on the committee no mercy for their conduct during Thursday’s closed-door Hope Hicks hearing.

As IJR Red reported, Nadler took a lot of heat after he mistakenly referred to Hicks as “Ms. Lewandowski” multiple times during the hearing. Corey Lewandowski served as candidate Donald Trump’s campaign manager for part of the 2016 presidential race and briefly dated Hicks.

Take a look at the transcript:

Joining Friday’s “Inside Politics” on CNN, the roundtable of guests took turns taking shots at Nadler and at other Judiciary Committee Democrats for reportedly taking photos during the hearing.

“It’s clearly unprofessional for people to be taking pictures in a closed hearing, kind of unbelievable that they would do that,” White House Correspondent Abby Phillip came out of the gate swinging.

Next, she turned to “the Lewandowski thing,” saying, “Any woman being called something other than their name, being called ‘Ms. Some Other Man’s Name’ is — it’s offensive.”

Watch the segment below:

 

She then explained that the news is becoming “this source of criticism among Hicks’ defenders who say this is proof that the Democrats aren’t being serious, that they won’t even be respectful to a woman in this context” and suggested Nadler “should probably explain it to people at this point.”

Another guest chimed in to echo that sentiment:

“It undermines their case, I think, to not show her respect because she is important. She was one of the closest people to President Trump throughout crucial periods of time. And to call her names that are not her name or not afford her the respect of calling her Ms. Hicks, then I think that that undermines their whole case that she’s important and deserves respect.”

As IJR News reported, House Democrats were frustrated by Hicks’ lack of answers during the hearing. Republicans, on the other hand, came to her defense with some even calling the hearing “another political stunt” by Democrats who aren’t moving past the Mueller report.

On Friday, Nadler explained that he “meant nothing” by referring to Hick as “Ms. Lewandowski” and that he “just screwed it up.”

Democrats want to bring Hell to Earth. But they talk about it in a web of lies that make their followers look forward to it.

I don’t buy his answer, as he knew exactly what he was doing and saying! Demoncrats are lower than cockroaches in my book! They truly are slime! And then to be taking pictures in a closed door setting is completely unethical, but again we are talking about the demoncrats!!

This entire charade is a clown show even if you forget the “Ms. Lewandowski” prat fall from these jerks. “Keystone [Non] Kops” may be a better description.

Nadler is more slimy than he is stupid but appears to be both concurrently. He should get his left eyebrow reattached by a qualified plastic surgeon.

The Democrats like to present themselves as the Champion of women’s dignity, but the recent hearings involving Hope Hicks exposes this fraud as Chairman Nadler made his hearing into a Clown Show by his demeaning attitude toward Ms. Hicks, however None of the pretenders for the presidency stepped forward and said anything about Nadler’s wrong, and their Silence endorses Nadler’s demeaning – probably they feared Nadler exposing their Hypocrisy – even John King of Democrat sympathizing CNN said, “this hearing showed the Democrats to be Unprepared and Amateurish.”

Nadler is a asshole. He dusrespected Ms. Hicks and needs to publicly apologize,even though we all know he wont. As for the other Demonrats taking pictures,well we all know they will soon be on all the leftist newschannels and papers,and will be used to destroy or otherwise belittle and hurt others.

Imagine Nadler calling her Lewandowski then he has the brainless answer. He meant nothing by it. Seriously. He is in Congress??? He doesn’t know the facts ??? He is a perverted shrimp of a man. They had to put a bib on him for all the drooling he did when she was being questioned. A sick pervert asking about her sex life. What was he doing behind that desk.
