Listen: Even with Known Hot Mics, Democrats Still Mock Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance


Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee mocked  Rep Gaetz, for proposing an amendment to say the Pledge of Allegiance before each hearing.

Prior to this statement, a staffer felt the need to remind the seasoned representatives,”So right now, everyone’s mic is hot and it is broadcasting online through Youtube. So just be keeping that in mind.”

Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen seemingly initiated the mockery by saying,“I wake up in the morning and I pledge allegiance to the flag, I go outside regardless of the weather, I got my flag up by my house and I pledge allegiance.

“Then I get on my knees and I pray. If I do that, if I, do I have to, am I supposed to do it again and how many times a day should I do that?”

“I think you should do it at least every hour,” another  Democrat responds.

The sarcastic conversation continued with much laughing, ending with Cohen saying, “unbelievable,” after asking Rep Pramila Jayapal to do something about this as head of the CPC.
