Could the kid even find Russia on a map?
Republican lawmakers have been warned lately to expect hostile questions at town hall meetings, but a New Jersey congressman probably never expected it to come out of the mouths of babes.
At about 1:20 into what was turning out to be a rowdy meeting with constituents, GOP Rep. Leonard Lance was asked a question by someone obviously too young to even vote.
“Will you hold Russia accountable for hacking and how?” he was asked by a boy who should have been more interested in video games than international affairs.
This elicited cheers from the participants and Lance replied, “Yes, I favor continued sanctions on Russia.”
The boy cried out, “Yes!”
When the congressman added favor “even increasing the sanctions,” the boy’s “Yes!” was even louder.
Lance followed up with a statement that he preferred the new National Security Advisor — H.R. McMaster over Michael Flynn, and the boy exclaimed, “Yes, yes, that is true.”
The New Jersey Observer reported that Lance’s meeting with constituents was the first this year in New Jersey by a Republican congressman, and described the participants as an “angry, anti-Trump crowd of more than 1,100 – plus another 350 protestors outside.”

But an adolescent? The question is, who put the kid up to it? More than that, what is it with liberals hiding behind schoolchildren to make a point? Is this going to be their new modus operandi?
NBC News used kids in several videos to trash President Donald Trump. The kids even claimed him of being anti-black, even though there doesn’t appear to be any statement or act attributable to him that would give that impression.
And NBC News is supposed to be a News organization — it’s in their name.
Fake news — it’s all fake news, and fake rage.
