VIDEO: ‘We’re Not in a Classroom!’ – RINO Triggered by Border Security Question from Reporter.

U.S. Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) snapped at a reporter who asked lawmakers to raise their hand if they supported shutting down the government unless President Joe Biden shuts down the border. The incident took place at a press conference held by House Speaker Mike Johnson and other Republican lawmakers at the U.S.-Mexico border earlier today.

“We’re not going to do a show of hands,” Fallon can be heard saying – interrupting House Speaker Mike Johnson as he fielded the question from Real America Voice’s Ben Bergquam. The Texas Republican continued: “We’re not in a classroom. We’re not doing a show of hands.”

The moment was additionally bizarre given that Bergquam and other reporters are routinely asked to raise their hands to aks questions of politicians, despite not being “in a classroom,” and that the question should be relatively easy to answer for a so-called conservative concerned with U.S. border security.

Instead, Speaker Johnson indicated the House would push forward with passing individual appropriations bills. He added that House Republicans were able to head off a Christmas omnibus bill out of the Senate. The House passed a laddered continuing resolution, meaning Congress has until January 19th to fund part of the federal government – and February 2nd to fund the remaining departments.

More than 60 House Republican lawmakers traveled to the U.S. southern border on Wednesday to see first-hand the results of President Biden’s open border policies. Several illegal immigrants were caught on video crossing into the United States just feet away from Speaker Johnson and his Congressional delegation as they prepared for a press conference yesterday.

WATCH:

.@BenBergquam asked Republicans for a show of hands — who would shut down the government if there’s no shut down of the border?

Apparently it offended @RepPatFallon who said he’s not in a classroom so he won’t do a show of hands? pic.twitter.com/Oo7Ci1F6X9
