Typical Democrat Hypocrisy – Al Franken attacked Donald Trump’s Health and Human Services nominee, Rep. Tom Price, over Philip Morris tobacco stocks that are part of Rep. Price’s mutual funds portfolio.
Franken attacked Price with stupid statements like “You personally benefited from tobacco sales. How do you square reaping personal financial gain from the sale of an addictive product that kills millions of Americans every decade?”
The problem is that dumb-fuck Al Franken owns the same Philip Morris tobacco stocks as part of his own portfolio! How fucking stupid can you get?
Sen. Johnny Isakson held mentally-challenged loser Al Franken to the fire as he called out Franken for holding the same tobacco stocks Franken was attacking Price for owning.
“I’m sure Sen. Franken had no idea that he owned part of Philip Morris when he made the statement he made about tobacco companies.” – Sen. Johnny Isakson
Al Franken is a complete and total fucking idiot!!
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R., Ga.) came to the defense of Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Health and Human Services, Rep. Tom Price (R., Ga.), during his Wednesday confirmation hearing after Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) criticized Price for owning stock in tobacco companies that he also owns.
Franken informed Price during the Wednesday hearing that smoking is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States, which led Price to note that he lost his father, a lifelong smoker, to emphysema.
Franken continued with his questioning by asking Price why he would choose to hold stock in tobacco companies knowing the health risks that come from smoking.
“You personally benefited from tobacco sales,” Franken said to Price. “How do you square reaping personal financial gain from the sale of an addictive product that kills millions of Americans every decade?”
Price defended himself from Franken’s accusations, noting that his financial holdings are mostly organized through mutual funds which contain a variety of stocks from across a spectrum of industries. Price then suggested that Franken most likely holds stock in a tobacco company through pension funds or mutual funds.
“I find it very hard to believe that you did not know you had tobacco stocks. I find it a little hard to believe in the questions of your stock portfolio that you did not know things,” Franken said, interrupting Price’s answer.
Later in the hearing, Isakson used his time for questioning to inform Franken that he owned stocks in tobacco-related companies.
“Any of us could make the mistakes that are being alleged,” Isakson said. “I’m sure Sen. Franken had no idea that he owned part of Philip Morris when he made the statement he made about tobacco companies.”
