The Democratic Party is full of interesting characters, and by interesting I mean they’re bordering on being admitted to the nut-house or old folks’ home. It’s truly amazing how some of these clowns have managed to slink into Congress, despite their very obvious lack of intelligence and ethics.
Sadly, people like Pelosi, Feinstein, Lee, Schumer, etc. have been facilitating our nation’s descent into the gutter for decades, and with advances in science and technology, it looks like they’ll continue being thorns in our nation’s side for some time yet. While all the aforementioned are stooges, Lee, in particular, stands heads and shoulders above the rest when it comes to who possesses the fewest brain cells.
As reported at the New York Post, Rep. Jackson has made it a habit to play the race card anytime someone dares to criticize her, but her latest use of the weapon is the most pathetic yet.
The Texas Rep. recently got into an argument with a passenger that blamed her for getting booted. Teacher Jean Marie Simon, 63, was removed from a first-class seat she had booked in advance so Jackson could have the seat instead. Simon was rightfully outraged over her treatment, and she took to social media to call Lee out directly.
Needless to say, Sheila doesn’t like getting called out, so she went on a Twitter tirade in response, accusing Simon of attacking her because she’s black.
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target,” she wrote on Twitter.
Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time Lee has lost her cool on a flight. Back in 1998, she went crazy when she didn’t get her seafood meal on a Continental flight.
“Don’t you know who I am? I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee! Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!” she bellowed.
More recently, David Martosko, US political editor for the Daily Mail, said he witnessed Lee meltdown on another flight.
“I saw Sheila Jackson Lee on a domestic flight two years ago. While I was walking back to coach, she was throwing a hissy fit in First Class over why the steward had to gate-check her carry-on. (It was too big to fit in the overhead.) She threw a tantrum worthy of a 3-year-old,” he wrote.
When Sheila’s not going off on flight attendants, she’s taking out her innate rage on her staff. She has a renowned reputation on Capitol Hill as a tyrant boss from hell, having had many quite from abuse.
“I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen,” she once declared to a staffer.
The Houston Press reported in 1998 that five of Lee’s staffers quit in disgust that spring. In 2011, the Huffington Post and Houston Chronicle reported that she had gone through 11 chiefs of staff in 11 years.
Lee also liked referring to a particular staff member as “You stupid motherf—er,” and threw her cell phone at another, demanding to be chauffeured by car when traveling between House office buildings, which are connected by tunnels.
On top of being a violent boss, Lee also has a habit of displaying her stunning lack of intelligence.
“Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace,” she said. Unbeknownst to Lee, the countries united in 1975 after the Vietnam war.
Lee is hardly alone in her ignorance and wild behavior, but she’s definitely one of the worst folks in Congress. Unfortunately for us all, she doesn’t appear anywhere close to retiring or being taken down electorally, so we’ll have to continue suffering her presence for the foreseeable future.
