Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., also placed a prop chicken on the witness desk for Attorney General William Barr after he didn’t appear before a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Attorney General William Barr refused to endure a second round of questioning on the Mueller report Thursday, so key professional Democratic legislator Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) decided to note his absence by engaging in a series of demonstrations involving chicken.
Get it? Because Barr was too “chicken” to face an all-Democrat House Judiciary Committee panel?
Cohen entered the 9 a.m. conference with two props: a plastic chicken statue and a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. Cohen tore into a “large piece of fried poultry,” according to Fox News, at his desk, just as his fellow committee members were taking their seats. More

Wow. This is unacceptable on so many levels. These are our so-called “leaders” or “representatives”? Complete disgrace, shameful and just goes to show how pitiful these anti-American socialists really are.
The Democrats get an A+ for being childish in their actions. The worst part of all this is we are paying them to act like five-year-olds. And these are the people who claim to be the smartest people in the room? They should start doing their job.
This just proves that AG Barr was correct that he would not be treated with basic respect or dignity by Democrats if he had appeared. I’m glad he stayed away.
They all seem to be working hard, don’t they ?
