Dem Rep Connolly: Cecile Richards’ Treatment ‘Made The Spanish Inquisition Look Like Tiddlywinks’

Representative Gerry Connolly (D-VA) declared that the treatment of Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards during her congressional testimony “made the Spanish Inquisition look like tiddlywinks” on Wednesday’s “NewsNation” on MSNBC.

Connolly said, “I must say, the treatment she got yesterday at our committee made the Spanish Inquisition look like tiddlywinks. It was a very disrespectful hearing.”

He added, “Do you think for a minute, if we had Tom Donahue, the head of the Chamber of Commerce, before our committee, any Republican would ask him about his compensation, or his travel budget, or his expenses, or his entertainment budget? Of course not.”
