CBS reporter asks loaded, insane question with a smirk that could anger a monk

With the Republican Party gaining control of both chambers of Congress in Tuesday’s sweeping midterm elections, Americans have hope for an improved atmosphere in Washington, D.C., that will allow government to address the challenges facing the country.

But, in case you missed it, a CBS reporter is having none of that.

The GOP regained control of the Senate and extended its majority in the House to the largest since at least 1946, but CBS reporter Nancy Cordes did her best to stir up discontent with a question she posed to House Speaker John Boehner at a Thursday press conference.

“Mr. Speaker, you have a new crop of conservatives coming into the House who have suggested, among other things, that women need to submit to the authority of their husbands, that Hillary Clinton is the Anti-Christ, and that the families of Sandy Hook victims should just ‘get over it,’” Cordes said. “So the ‘Hell No Caucus,’ as you’ve put it, is getting bigger.”

The look of disbelief on Boehner’s face as Cordes laid out the audacious question was priceless. But he didn’t bite, telling the reporter he took exception to the premise of her question.

But Cordes, with a smirk on her face reminiscent of CNN’s Carol Costello, took another swing at pitting the Speaker against his caucus.

“But on immigration, for example, you tried to act in the last Congress and your conservative members yanked you back,” she said.

“No, no, no, no, no,” Boehner replied. “Again, I would argue with the premise of the question. What held us back last year was a flood of kids coming to the border because of the actions that the president had already taken.”
