A House subcommittee hearing on the supposed harmful effects of e-cigarettes when off-the-rails when Democrat Squad Member Rashida Tlaib questioned pro-vaping advocate Vicki Porter.
Tlaib wondered if some conspiracy was going on because Porter winked at her friend, Wisconsin Rep. Republican Glen Grothman after introducing her.
Tlaib pressed her, “why were you winking at one of my colleagues on other side of the aisle? You winked."
Porter said she is a friend of Republican Wisconsin Rep. Glen Grothman and because he had introduced her.
As the Washington Examiner reports"
Tlaib responded, “OK, I understand. I didn’t know what the winking was, because I thought maybe there were some thing like a conspiracy thing going on there. I didn’t know.”
Porter asked to address "the truth." Tlaib told her, "The truth to you is very different for the majority of people in this room."
Porter shot back, “The truth for me is that I’ve quit smoking with e-cigarettes and so did 8 million other people.“
"You’re still smoking, ma'am," Tlaib snapped back.
