Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, has people still scratching their heads this morning with the almost tearful, emotional speech he gave during the hearing on Lois Lerner’s lost emails Monday night on Capitol Hill.
You have to watch the video to truly understand the depth of his
acting pain. Here are some descriptions from the Twitter crowd, and some via Twitchy:
Uh oh. Elijah Cummings is seriously about to cry he’s so upset the IRS has to answer questions.

@BenHowe Thanking the Commish for keeping him out of prison.

Turned back and Cummings (D) almost in tears because the IRS Commissioner had to answer some tough questions. Not even joking.

Who could have guessed this house investigation would have become liberals using emotion vs GOP using facts? Who?
