What a time to be alive! As we watched the parade of Trump’s cabinet appointees hit the confirmation hearing stage this week, it gave lawmakers a chance to determine how Trumpy they truly are. Would Trump’s picks fall in line with his wall-building, swamp-draining, and registry-forming plans? Or would they go their own way in an attempt to save their future careers and appeal to other people besides Dear Leader Trump?
Though the hearings droned on throughout this week’s more exciting, pee-related revelations, they featured their own form of entertainment: sick burns. The week was filled with Senators giving C-Span the political version of “Really, tho?” and giving dry, deadpan reactions to the appointees’ ridiculous answers. Here were the best moments.
