Once again, we see the double standards of the Democratic Party of full display.
Ever since Obama rose to worship-status, Democrats believe that most rules, especially those of civility, only apply to Republicans, but not themselves.
We have seen this time and again, especially since Trump took office two years ago, much to the dismay and anguish of angry socialists.
In the latest display, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker voluntarily agreed to appear before the House Judiciary Committee.
When Democratic Chair Jerrold Nadler began attacking Whitaker, in what Republicans called an attempted character assassination, Whitaker turned the tide on Nadler, telling him his 5 minutes was up.
Fox News – Hearing erupts as Acting AG Whitaker calls time on Dem chairman: ‘Your 5 minutes is up’ – Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker stunned onlookers and lawmakers during an already-contentious House hearing Friday, when he tried to call time on the Democratic chairman after yet another line of questioning regarding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
The retort came after Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., first said he wanted Whitaker to appear for a private deposition after the hearing and went on to ask Whitaker whether he had been “asked to approve any requests or action” for the special counsel.
“Mr. Chairman, I see that your five minutes is up, so…” Whitaker replied as the hearing room broke out in gasps. “I am here voluntarily. We have agreed to five-minute rounds.”
Nadler, who even cracked a slight smile at the response, repeated his question, and Whitaker ultimately responded: “I have not interfered in any way with the special counsel’s investigation.” …
Consider how Democrats and their media mouthpieces in the sewagestream media, blast President Trump and any of the Republican over saying the slightest or innocent things.
Yet, during the Senate confirmation hearing last year for Brett Kavanaugh, we saw how uncivil, rude and downright venomous Democrats are.
The only time the rules apply to Democrats is when it is to their advantage. But that’s the only time they abide by the rules.
