Monday's impeachment hearing featured no shortage of angry ranting from Republican representatives. But few tried harder to make an impression than freshman Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA).
During his turn, Reschenthaler parroted the debunked conspiracy theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, asserted that Democrats are only impeaching President Donald Trump to distract people from the fact that they're coming for our airplanes and health insurance, falsely claimed that the telephone memorandum of Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky doesn't reveal a quid pro quo, and claimed Democrats just started calling it bribery because focus groups didn't like Latin.
Reschenthaler's performance was so bizarre that commenters on social media barely even knew what to make of it:
