Tucker Carlson Mocks Kinzinger, Schiff, For Crying Like Babies During Pelosi’s Sham January 6 Hearing (Video)

On Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi’s sham hearing on the January 6 Capitol riot kicked off, with tearful testimonies and edited video footage all intended to tug at the heartstrings of the seven Democrats and two RINOs hand-picked by the Ice Cream Queen herself.

Two of those participating in the hearing, Reps. Adam Kinzinger, RINO-Il., and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., broke down in tears.  Tucker Carlson had a bit of fun at their expense as he viciously mocked them:

Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro posted a transcript of Carlson’s comments:

TUCKER CARLSON: The one thing we did learn, it’s something we long suspected but never seemed confirmed is an awful lot of members of Congress are emotionally fragile. At some seem unable — unstable really. Some to the point where they might qualify for federal disability of those grounds, they cry a lot.

As members of Congress filed into the House chamber, a servant handed out tissues for the weeping that was certain to ensue. It didn’t take long for Republican Adam Kinzinger of Illinois to make good use of the Kleenex, watch.

REP. ADAM KINZINGER (R-IL) (Emotional): I never expected today to be quite as emotional for me as it has been. [Transition] You talked about the impact of that day. But you guys won. You guys held. You know, democracies are not defined by our bad days. We’re defined by how we come back for bad days. How we take accountability for that.

CARLSON: It was all too much for Adam Kinzinger, he wept just thinking of it, he let it all pour out right there in the hearing, couldn’t help it.

Kinzinger hadn’t cried this hard since he drank too much Rosé while watching the final rose ceremony on the bachelor, the one they were mean to Brianna. Adam Kinzinger is a highly sensitive plant and he doesn’t care who knows it.

But what surprised us was Adam Schiff of California. You think about Adam Schiff as a kind of tough character. A few years ago he single-handedly took on an entire Facebook page full of Russian memes and lived to tell the story. Schiff once accused us, in this set, of working for Vladimir Putin, so naturally, we pegged him as a pretty hard guy. But even Putin-fighting heroes have their limits.

As Schiff recalled the horrible image—the nightmare really, of the Qanon shaman wandering aimlessly around the Capitol in a psilocybin haze, carrying the American flag, he broke down and pretended to cry. Watch it if you can, it’s a moving moment.

REP. ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA): God help us. We’re so driven by bigotry and hate that we attack our fellow citizens as traitors. If they are born in another country or they don’t look like us. And god help us. But I have faith, because of folks like you. And Adam, I didn’t expect this to be quite so emotional but it must be an Adam thing today.

CARLSON: Yeah, it’s an Adam thing. Did Adam Schiff just complain that others were calling people traitors? Really? He cried anyway.

Indeed, for Schiff to get all worked up over people being called traitors — especially after his leading role in the years-long attempted coup against Trump — is a bit… much.

Breitbart tells us that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO, Wy., the other alleged “Republican” hand-picked by Pelosi, “…did not tear up, but delivered an opening statement that warned fellow Republicans that ‘our children are watching.'”

Even CNN had to admit the highly partisan nature of the sham “investigation,” saying the committee made it clear they’re going after the former president.
