  1. It’s that incredibly high level of brainpower that has made the Trump Administration what it is today. Congrats! (Is she about to replace McNinnyTM?)

    Next.

  2. Yet Another Calgarian says:

    I had the dubious pleasure of sitting through a week of regulatory hearings in Quebec a few years ago. It was an eye opener.

    This person… is not surprising in the least.

    The public would probably be terrified if they knew what actually counted as public input for policy decisions. Assuming of course they could work up the effort to care mind you.

    • The Doctor says:

      Part of the issue here is just greater awareness through the ubiquitousness of social media etc. Yes, it is utterly depressing that there are significant numbers of loons like these, but 40 years ago or so they weren’t so visible to us. And they couldn’t so easily communicate with one another, amplifying each other’s nuttiness etc. All those loons at that hearing in Palm Beach County were clearly influenced by alt-right media, you can hear all the same tropes and catchphrases (e,g., Hillary and her secret — but massive! –pedophile ring).

      Charlie Sykes — a conservative btw — had a great phrase for all this in today’s Bulwark podcast: “This is your brain on facebook”.

  3. Steve T says:

    The scariest part is that this person’s vote cancels yours.

  4. the real Sean says:

    Nothing in this video would prevent this person from being OK’d by the LPC Green Light Committee.

    Yo

    Hmm …this woman may appear to be an angry partisan but if she were an accused who came into court and started speaking like this ( loud manic pace/ disjointed argument/multiple conspiracy theory’s) we would be sending her away for a fitness to stand trial assessment . She has many of the hallmarks of a person dealing with a mental illness and I don’t think it’s appropriate for the internet to ridicule her.

    What it does show is how certain factions on the right have have taken a page from ISSIS , incels and white supremacy playbooks to excite and exploit the mentality vulnerable

    • The Doctor says:

      Well, if you follow the news stories on this, you’ll see that there were about half a dozen other speakers at this hearing that were every bit as loony as this woman. So does that mean that being clinically insane and being a Trump supporter are highly correlated?

  6. Skatefish Ted says:

    Thoughtful, informed, and passionate. Can we please replace Dr Tam with this eloquent defender of human freedom?

  7. Nasty Bob says:

    Most of those who buy into Qannon, get rich Jesus, We the people, etc. strike me as sanctimonious ,self righteous, self absorbed ignorant individuals who willfully or recklessly toss aside their facility for critical reasoning . They should know better and deserve what they get.

    But it seems to me that Trump world cultivates and inflames such people in a way the left does not. It’s very proper to shine a light on that.

    I saw some of the other speakers . One might suspect some anger management issues or personality disorders among them but they are being ridiculous not mentally ill.

    There is a big difference between those who willfully/recklessly do away with critical thought and those who have it taken from them because they are not well. ( It doesn’t seem to matter to Trump world and that’s another evil to add to the tally).

    I can’t say what’s going on with this woman for sure – nobody can without a proper work-up – but after 25 years of listening to angry people yell I think I’ve developed enough of an ear to distinguish between those who are assholes and those who need an assessment.
