Demsplaining: House Democratic Leader Lectures Statue of Abraham Lincoln

Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) had an interesting moment in Congress on Thursday, when he and his media gaggle stopped for a moment so that he could have a conversation with a statue of Abraham Lincoln.

Yesterday, Hoyer came out of a meeting with Majority Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, and said that no one was telling him where he could review a Congressional bill that would supposedly repeal the Affordable Care Act. As he walked through the halls of the Capitol, he eventually stopped in front of a statue of Lincoln, where he aired his frustrations while consulting the wisdom of the 16th President.

Critics have expressed frustration recently over the rumors that the GOP are working on a bill do away with Obamacare, yet they have not clearly defined their efforts or publicly outlined a plan. Hoyer said he doesn’t know whether that bill was still being drafted or not, but he found it odd that it was being kept under wraps while President Trump‘s agenda is repeal and replace.

Watch above.
