On Tuesdays edition of CNNs The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzers panel laid into Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin for his overt rudeness to Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) at a budgetary hearing for his department.
During that hearing, Mnuchin repeatedly told her he had an important meeting to be at, reminded her of the time, and even told her to gavel out the session.
You usually have to go to a junior high school student council to see debate at that level, said CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin. Im supposed to leave in 15 minutes! Come on. The problem with this administration is theyre not used to having congressional oversight. For two years the Republicans didnt even ask them any questions and its like, Oh, I have the meeting at 5:15.
Blitzer and other panelists noted that Waters, whose committee oversees Mnuchins department, is the same congresswoman who President Donald Trump has repeatedly mocked as low IQ.
Two things in there that were specifically disrespectful, Wolf, said theWashington Posts David Swerdlick. First, he said hisimportant meeting, implying the meeting they were having right then and there wasnt important. Second, telling her she should gavel out the committee as if hes running the meeting, not her.
To the point that Jeffrey made about Republicans not being used to oversight, Swerdlick continued. Its also and I think some viewers are not going to like this its also the case that I think you have a situation of a wealthy powerful white man not liking to be told what to do by an African-American woman sitting congressional chair Its a pattern in this administration.

Donald Trump has obstructed justice, lied repeatedly to the American people and has been forced to shut down his charity after engaging in illegal activity. Democrats are debating impeachment. If Democrats fault Republicans for standing by as Trump disgraces the office, Democrats must stand up. Sign your name to tell Nancy Pelosi enough is enough.
