Reporter’s Notebook: There’s little chance that lawmakers will kiss – and ‘makeup’

The recent rhubarb in the House Oversight Committee revealed one thing:
Divides in Congress are more than cosmetic.
“I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading,” chided Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., staring across the room at Rep. Jasmine Crockett, D-Texas.

Greene faced eyelash backlash from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.
“How dare you attack the physical appearance of another person?” charged Ocasio-Cortez.
“Are your feelings hurt?” shot back Greene.
“Oh girl, baby girl. Don’t even play!” cracked Ocasio-Cortez.
The makeup mayhem consumed the House Oversight Committee as it tried to prepare a contempt of Congress citation for Attorney General Merrick Garland.

It’s a good thing the late Rep. Frank Mascara, D-Pa., wasn’t around for this donnybrook.
Look him up, folks.
