Devin Nunes is used to being a mockery, so it probably came as no surprise when he was made a complete fool of on Tuesday when he tried to discredit the service of Iraq War hero Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman by addressing him as “Mr. Vindman.” Vindman immediately set Nunes straight, but the day was ruined for Nunes from then on.
Tuesday, Republicans called on former Ambassador to NATO, Kurt Volker, to testify, and it completely blew up in their face when Volker claimed:
‘I REMEMBER, THE MEETING WAS ESSENTIALLY OVER WHEN AMBASSADOR SONDLAND MADE A GENERIC COMMENT ABOUT INVESTIGATION. I THINK ALL OF US THOUGHT IT WAS INAPPROPRIATE; THE CONVERSATION DID NOT CONTINUE.’
Amb. Kurt Volker ended up debunking a bunch of the GOP’s conspiracy theories today, so Devin Nunes is now trying to say he was a “Democrat witness.”
But here’s the letter, dated Nov. 9 and signed by Nunes, requesting Volker to appear on behalf of his Republican colleagues. pic.twitter.com/sqT8Ddd5bS

Does Devin Nunes not understand what a wack-a-doodle he sounds like when he spouts off these conspiracy theories?

Volker even said this about Joe Biden:
‘I HAVE KNOWN FORMER VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN FOR 24 YEARS, AND THE SUGGESTION THAT HE WOULD BE INFLUENCED IN HIS DUTIES AS VICE PRESIDENT BY MONEY FOR HIS SON SIMPLY HAS NO CREDIBILITY FOR ME. I KNOW HIM AS A MAN OF INTEGRITY AND DEDICATION TO OUR COUNTRY.’
Now, Devin Nunes is being made fun of on social media for failing at every single thing he does, including calling star witnesses to testify in front of the House Intelligence committees. Check out what people are saying on Twitter:

I'm a few minutes behind, but Volker seems to be saving himself and condemning Trump for believing in batshit conspiracy theories

Volker gives ringing endorsement of Biden and you can feel Jordan and Nunes disappear under the desk.

Adam Schiff’s ability to sit calmly next to Devin Nunes as he spouts insane garbage without punching him in the nose is truly impressive.

Today, four witnesses laid out in painstaking detail how the President attempted to use military aid to bribe Ukraine to interfere in our election.
Jim Jordan and Devin Nunes spent the day arguing that President Trump is innocent since he didn’t shout, “I WANT TO BRIBE UKRAINE!”

No one is enjoying the impeachment hearing more than Devin Nunes’ family who gets to spend a whole day without him.
