(FreedomWire.org) – Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas looked stunned on Wednesday after Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy surprised him during a hearing.
Mayorkas was testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee when mid-testimony Sen. Kennedy patted him on the right shoulder, walked behind him and went in for a handshake.
Mayorkas immediately jumped at the first pat on the back before being overcome with confusion as he searched around to see who laid a hand on him. Mayorkas then cracked a smile after he realized it was Kennedy.
Kennedy later grilled Mayorkas, asking him to define an assault weapon after Mayorkas called to ban them.
“You said you will oppose all assault weapons. But you don’t know what they are. Can you give me an example?” Kennedy stated.
“I think I gave you an example yesterday.” Mayorkas replied.
On Tuesday, Mayorkas was grilled from Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee over the Biden administration’s border crisis, Kennedy shared his takeaways.
Kennedy pointed out, “Either Secretary Mayorkas believes in completely open borders or he is not qualified to manage a Chuck E. Cheese.”
