Rashida Tlaib to Vicki McKenna: “Why were you winking? Are you a conspiracy theorist?”

The subject was Vaping

No wonder Democrats saw Russian conspiracies

Tlaib: “I thought maybe there was a conspiracy thing going on.”

A member of “The Squad,” U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Michigan, sees conspiracy theories under every conservative’s bed. Our own Vicki McKenna testified before a  House Oversight Committee on e-cigarettes today [09-24-19].  Tlaib tried to discredit Vicki’s defense of vaping as an alternative to cigarette smoking by raising the specter of that Great Conservative Conspiracy. The transcript:

Winking eyeTlaib: “You call yourself a converted conservative and a reformed Marxist. Are you a conspiracy theorist?”

Vicki McKenna: “I think my politics are entirely irrelevant to this hearing.”

Tlaib: “Oh, okay. Why were you winking at one of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle?”

Vicki: “Because I know [U.S. Rep.] Glenn Grothman, [R-WI]. He introduced me, he’s a friend of mine.”

Tlaib: “I didn’t know what the winking was, ‘cause I thought maybe there was something, like a conspiracy thing going on there. I didn’t know.”

Vicki: “You think there’s a conspiracy in this hearing, Ma’am?”

Tlaib: “No, I actually think people are speaking truth here, and you can provide information.”

Vicki: “May I address the truth?”

Tlaib: “Well the truth to you is very different from the majority of people in this room, who do believe that children are being targeted by vaping.”

Vicki:“The truth for me is I quit smoking with e-cigarettes and so did 8 million other people.”

Tlaib: “You’re still smoking.” 

Vicki: “I’m not smoking. And I’m not lying under oath.” 

Hear Vicki talk about it here!

    WOW! I almost cannot read what Tlaib is saying without feeling sorry for her. It’s like watching a heroin addict trying to score their next fix! You know from the beginning that every word coming out of their mouth is used to manipulate you into making think they are the victim so you feel sorry for them! Man I do really feel sorry for the Democrats and the ones like Tlaib need to check into rehab!! They know not what they are doing is wrong! Forgive them, they are a Democrat!

    McKenna should have said, “Have you no sense of decency?”

    Just like a parent to a child as is a sane person to a democrat “Stop it NOW, you are starting to make me mad” This, along with the Madison School Board weighing in on the F-35’s, is like the insane running the asylum! Wow, all I can say is WOW!

    Actually Miss Vicki answered her outlandish discussion and paranoia with a wonderful question.

    “You think there’s a conspiracy in this hearing, Ma’am?”

    That is classic and you could see that Vicki totally owned her with that. So what does a crazy do back to her? She gets angry crazy back at Vicki because she knows she now looks like a total idiot.

    Thank you Vicki !!!!!

    Why would a wink mean conspiracy?

    Who are the people who voted for Rep. Tlaib? That’s the investigation the House of Representatives should undertake.

      Thanks for posting that, Paula; and I suspect I may not be alone on this by saying I couldn’t agree more.

      Had I, or any of the other EVIL old White Y-Chromosomal Unit regulars said so, @hankdog/old baldy & @AnonyBob would have profusely slobbered the hysterical deflection about how fearful we are of strong women, and SEXIST for good measure.

    Vaping isn’t smoking? Hmmm. Both involve heating or burning (basically the same, no?) a substance to emit a gas. Is one better than the other? More healthy?
    And no one should wink at Grothman, ever. Sheesh. 🙂
