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.
