Mike Pompeo recently had to answer some questions in committee. During the hearing, Congressman Ted Lieu asked a pretty straight forward question. One that could have easily been dispatched with a “yes or no” answer. Instead, here is how Pompeo answered. Stuttering and stammering, like a kid who knows he’s going to get the shit beat out of him when his father gets home.

Below is the exchange, but it’s far more entertaining to watch him stutter and squirm in is seat.

Congressman Ted Lieu: “Do you believe there is a criminal ‘deep state’ at the State Department?”

Secretary Mike Pompeo: “I-I don’t… I haven’t… seen the… c-comments from the President. I… I don’t believe there’s a deep state at the State Department.”

This really shows us just how inspired, confident, and trusted, Trumps cabinet members feel these days.
