Gah. House votes not to remove rematks and now I guess yes to give her speaking rights back. Of corse they did. No honor Democrats!
Thank you for link to connection. Pelosi's volatile remarks are roughly 3:17 in. Much discombobulation. Am at 3:26 with no continuance of audio yet, but interactions and body language on both sides interesting. Dems ganging up on the left side of the dias; Repubs respectfully holding back while the clerk gets their act together to read back Pelosi's comments. Slow going. See Nunes in the bottom right corner, love him! Appreciate GA Rep Doug Collins efforts.
@barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis good play by play. ☺
Excrutiating. Cannot imagine being in the heat of the moment and enduring that. Gaetz, Nunes, McCarthy on the right of screen shaking heads continually in disgust. Seems to be complicated for the parliamentarian staff to find the right rule to let the Speaker off the hook. As we now know, Pelosi was found to have violated the House rules on decorum against personally denigrating the POTUS, but the Dems then vote to skirt consequences preventing her from speaking further this day.
I am reminded of watching football games. The head parliamentarian repeatedly goes up to speak to the presiding House Chairman (D), covering his mouth to block the view. I keep looking for the classic football "Waffle House" laminated card of plays to discuss with coaches on the sidelines. It is surreal.
They (D's) are really trying to work out a plausible out. As we know, they do not find it, as the day goes down in the flames of 200+ years of House of Rep rules of decorum and debate.
Do not see Baline here on thread. Elsewhere, on their thread? Best. Also, exhausted from this and from the day's work in general, so out of respect for fellow Quods, likely not to reach out further tonight while tired and depleted. Maybe peruse casually and enjoy and boost. Mind is temporarily mush, Lemon, after that historical debacle. 😳
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
