Eighth Grader Owns Monica Conyers In Debate!

by Jim Newell


You may recall how Monica Conyers, wife of ancient Congressman John Conyers and President Pro-Tem of the Detroit City Council, recently got into a comical shouting match with the Council President while in session and ultimately called him “Shrek,” as a pejorative. In this video, the Detroit News brings a group of schoolchildren into the Council chamber to ask Conyers about her behavior, and it devolves into a heated debate in which an 8th grader completely destroys Conyers. You will not regret watching the whole clip. [YouTube]

“That’s something a second grader would do.” LOL, destruction.

Shit that clip is gold. When the 6th grader (!!) starts talking slow and all patronizingly to Conyers is the best part.

Also, Charlie LeDuff. I like the cut of his jib.

Notice who’s moderating this discussion — Sam Riddle, who is also facing indictment in the Synagro sludge-hauling contract bribery probe. Also.
