Remember when leaders of the Democratic Party came to the mic and declared that the impeachment of Trump was a “solemn and prayerful” occasion? Serious stuff, right?
Well, it wasn’t so serious for Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana…
He was caught on video watching the Presidents Cup golf tournament on his laptop during this “solemn” and “prayerful” moment:
The taxpayers are paying for this guy to watch golf while the impeachment hearing that HIS Party wanted is happening?

According to Golf.com Richmond was watching at 9 p.m. last night:
The time on the video reads 9:00 p.m. ET, by which time all foursomes matches were on the course at Royal Melbourne. In fact, around that time the U.S. trailed in all five of the Day 2 contests, and were at risk of completely embarrassing themselves in Australia.
But the U.S. team fought back late in the night as the congressional debate was coming to an end, with the Americans salvaging 2 1/2 points from the session, which included another win by Justin Thomas and captain Tiger Woods, ending the night trailing 6 1/2 – 3 1/2.
If Richmond was in a job in the private sector and did that, he’d be fired.
