The Benghazi hearing came to end last night when committee Chairman Trey Gowdy’s mother called in and told him it was time to come home.
While in the middle of a heated exchange with Mrs. Clinton, Gowdy was interrupted by a staff-member who handed him a note.
Gowdy then announced, “This has been a great Freedom Caucus play-date but mama just called and said that I need to get home and get ready for bed.”
Chairman Gowdy’s mother did confirm that she made the call. “At 9 p.m. I turned Fox TV back on and lo and behold I saw my little Trey still sittin in that big ol chair all sweaty-like.”
She continued, “So I picked up the phone and told him that it was time to go home. Plus he knows that Thursday is gumbo and Dukes of Hazzard re-runs night.”
Other members of the committee were stunned. Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff was furious. “I wanted the opportunity to say at least another seventy-two times that this committee is politically motivated.”
Moments after the hearing ended, a source said that Republican Congressman Jim Jordan was so upset that he began foaming at the mouth and acting disoriented. Things calmed down after a doctor was called in and the Congressman was given a rabies shot.
After a grueling eleven hours of testimony, Mrs. Clinton is said to be at home emailing her friends all of the details of today’s proceedings.
