A Minnesota Republican snatched his opponent’s mic, then dropped it in front of her

Quote:
“I’ve seen the systematic disinvestment in public education,” Mahlberg, a psychology teacher who had never run for office before, told the audience. “I think we can do better than that, and we can start doing better than that by simply making sure that formula increases over time.”

She smiled and turned to her left, awaiting the next question.

She did not see that from her other side, Quam’s hand was sliding low across the table toward her.

It all happened in about a second.

Quam’s left hand passed over a notebook and behind Mahlberg’s plastic drinking cup.

It made a little detour around her elbow and shot up toward the microphone she still held at chest level.

And then he yanked the mic straight up from Mahlberg’s fist, like Excalibur from the Arthurian stone, and made it his again.

“Thank you!” he said...

He seems to have low EQ ...

-disregards social etiquette of asking for mike
-is an engineer
-"he delivered a dry and detailed argument "

Probably would have helped if they each had their own mic. The guy was obviously being akward. But of corse liberal media has to say he violently grabbed it from her and then threw it at her, because he's a republican. Always as much sensationalism as possible.

i see it as bungling ineptitude. and you see it as an act of violence. guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

Isn’t Minnesota a solid blue state?
