Rep. Keith Ellison IS REALLY SERIOUS about the frosted glass. What kind of idiots do we have in Congress? How can he ask the questions with a straight face?
ELLISON BULLIES MULVANEY ABOUT HIS FROSTED GLASS!
Ellison took issue with how the opaque windows blocked people from looking into Mulvaney’s office.
“When you got to the CFPB, was the glass clear in your office?” Ellison asked Mulvaney.
“Yes sir,” Mulvaney said.
Ellison then put up an image of Mulvaney’s office to the room, pointing out that the new windows are frosted.
“So when somebody walks by your office, they’re obscured from seeing what you’re doing,” Ellison asked.
“Uh, yeah. They are,” Mulvaney said. “That’s the whole point.”
“Yet you are the champion of transparency, right?” Ellison asked, before reading quotes where Mulvaney said he cares about transparency.
“And yet you have obscured yourself physically! And I find that to be ironic, sir,” Ellison said.
NO, THIS IS NOT A SKIT FROM SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE! THIS IS THAT DUMB!
IT GOT EVEN MORE IDIOTIC:
Ellison then asked Mulvaney how much the renovation cost, and he said 13 offices received frosted glass, costing a total of $3500.
IT WAS THE PREVIOUS DIRECTOR’S PLAN:
Mulvaney explained that the renovation was part of former CFPB Director Richard Cordray’s design for the office, but Ellison shot back.
“Yeah, yeah, and yet you’re the one who did it, not Mr. Cordray,” Ellison replied. “And he’d been there for quite a while.”
MULVANEY THEN REVEALED THAT ELLISON HAS PRIVACY TOO:
Mulvaney then asked Ellison if his door was transparent.
“I’m not a witness today. You are,” Ellison replied.
“I’ve been to your office,” Mulvaney said. “I can’t see into it.”
Ellison continued to lambast Mulvaney for his windows, and even said his office at CFPB is one he “shouldn’t even hold right now.” Ellison is one of several Democrats maintaining, contrary to a court ruling, that President Donald Trump illegally appointed Mulvaney.
REP. KEITH ELLISON DOUBLED DOWN! He tweeted later on about the frosted glass in Mulvaney’s office:
Mick Mulvaney touts himself as Mr. Transparency. But today when I showed him this picture, he admitted it was his office at CFPB and that he’d had the glass walls in the building frosted like this. How is that transparent? pic.twitter.com/XJjJYvVQSG
