I hadn’t listened to most of it. Parts of the middle of the first half sound a lot like the storm in Beethoven’s Sixth. 

Anyway, why would someone with a name like Kirstjen Nielsen know anything about Scandinavia?

I love this piece...it's truly madness.  I love the Sixth, which is like a musical kitchen sink.  But this is like a harkening that builds to truly GODLIKE SCREAMING LUNACY.  I love it.

“When you -DHS secrtetary Kirsten Nielson)- say you don’t know if Norway is predominantly white when asked by a member ..., that causes me concern about your ability to understand the scope of your responsibilities and the impact of your words, much less the policies that you promulgate in that very important department,” said (sen. Kamala) Harris.

Nielsen’s answer is bad either way you cut it. If she did know this but wanted to give cover to Trump, she may have just lied under oath. If she somehow did not know that Scandinavian countries are whiter than a pack of arctic foxes rolling through a snow drift, the head of the Department of Homeland Security is unaware of basic global demographics.
