Cultist Rep Defends “Tourists” Claim In Fiery Exchange

Forbes reports:

Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) said during a fiery back-and-forth in a House committee hearing on Tuesday that he stands by comments comparing the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol to a “normal tourist visit” and his vote against congressional gold medals for law enforcement that responded to the attack, on the same day that four officers told of their near-death experiences defending the Capitol.

The back-and-forth often devolved into shouting matches between the two lawmakers, with Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), the Rules Committee chair, intervening several times to “lower the decibel.” “We are here to discuss this amendment and you are obviously not interested in that. You want to make this another Jan. 6 hearing, and it’s not! This is the rules committee!” Clyde said at one point.
