Democratic representative Steve Cohen arrived at William Barr’s House Judiciary hearing with a fake chicken (technically a rooster) and a bucket of KFC. Why? Barr didn’t show, so he is — wait for it, you already know it’s coming — chicken.
Photos of the Tennessee rep chowing down on the chicken circulated on Twitter early Thursday. This is how you know Cohen did a good stunt: He got to eat fried chicken before ten in the morning.
Attorney General Barr refused to show at the hearing in protest of Democrats’ plan for committee lawyers to question him. He also does not plan to comply with a subpoena demanding the full, unredacted Mueller report.
Rep. Jerry Nadler, who is the chairman of the committee, reportedly plans to hold Barr in contempt of Congress if his snitty behavior does not improve.
In the meantime, please enjoy these images of the chicken incident.
I asked Cohen if his holding a glass chicken and bucket of KFC was helpful, and Cohen called Barr “Chicken Barr” and a “coward”

.@RepCohen brought a plastic chicken and a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken (which he is tucking into ahead of this 9AM House Judiciary hearing.)
“He’s here,” Cohen said, pointing to the chicken and referring to AG Barr who is not attending after a grilling in the Senate. pic.twitter.com/bGz3HCRSCQ
