Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been ripped to shreds for his role in the House Intelligence Committee hearings on the impeachment inquiry. In his first week of questioning, Nunes brought up nude photos of President Donald Trump, which sent a wave of gags across the country.
In week-two of his committee rants, Nunes, again, tried desperately to show off his expert smarts for the cameras. It didn’t go well. His impeachment witness called for the afternoon session turned out to give details about Trump that weren’t entirely favorable.
As some noted, “intelligence” may not be Nunes’ strong suit, as he’s suing a fake cow.
The internet quickly responded by mocking Nunes and the Republicans for clearly being in over the heads.

Volker is here because Republicans requested his testimony. https://t.co/F5VxblLzAc

Volker gives ringing endorsement of Biden and you can feel Jordan and Nunes disappear under the desk.

And this is a witness requested by the Republicans?! https://t.co/Fve0Jutn7b

Your GOP overlords requested him as a witness, genius.

Volker appears to be going with the "I'm a fucking idiot" defense which Nunes can easily relate to.

Guininely puzzled by Rep. Nunes insisting Volker be the GOP star witness

Volker: I should have seen that differently and said it was wrong.
Nunes et al.: I'd like a re-do https://t.co/ZLf0Bdkb22

You wouldn't know it from Nunes' martyr speech here, but the two witnesses sitting in front of him were requested by him.

Devin Nunes is somehow sweatier than he was this morning. Must be all the tinfoil he’s wearing.

All I can think of when I see Nunes now is that he's suing a cow on Twitter.

Listening to Devin Nunes's opening statement, I repeat: https://t.co/yK4jheRmpN

Context: Volker was on the Nunes/Jordan witness list. https://t.co/qQZ2NP74bm

Nunes is not trying to save Trump. Nunes is trying to save Nunes.
From what, we won't yet know, but it certainly explains his desperate behavior. https://t.co/2JgvrcoOns

Volker, thought to be a backstop point by the Nunes and Jordan crew, has been anything but. Significant and eye opening. The howlers are going to be coming for him. Appearances are that Morrison won't change that.
The firewall is crumbling.

Devin Nunes keeps saying that America's civil servants "didn't like Trump's Ukraine policy."
Uh…. *what* Ukraine policy?
Trump, per witnesses, "didn't give a shit about Ukraine."
