McHenry, in another perfect example of his sleezy ways, had to carefully dodge some heavy questions- not by fellow politicians, but by Highschool students.
The toughest questions came from junior Ben Napper.
When the 16-year-old asked McHenry how he would deal with what Ben said was the probable outcome of next month’s election — a Democratic sweep of the White House and both chambers of congress, McHenry jokingly tried to step on the boy’s toes.
“How are you going to work with that kind of situation?” Ben asked.
“You have to work with who the American people elected,” McHenry answered when the fake toe-stomping subsided. “And sometimes that’s better than other times.”
Ben then got even tougher, asking McHenry how he felt about non-discrimination and equal pay in the workplace.
When McHenry answered he was for equality, Ben asked “Then how do you defend your vote against it?”
The teen was likely referring to two bills McHenry voted against in 2007. The Sexual Orientation Employment Nondiscrimination Act and the Equal Pay Bill.
Too bad, McHenry. Even though the gutless Republicans of the 10th don’t ask the right questions, even Highschool students see through some of your lies.
By the way, how do you intend to “work with who the American People elect” when you keep essentially claiming Pelosi is the Antichrist? That’s not working together, that’s firing from cover while pretending to want to shake hands. Pelosi does deserve some hate, but at the rate you’re going, every Democrat and Republican on Capitol Hill is going to have a Patrick McHenry dartboard before the end of your reign.
