Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who chairs a House subcommittee on border security, called Pfeiffer a demagogic self-serving political hack who cant even be elected to a parent advisory committee, much less Congress.
Pfeiffer had tweeted a link to an editorial in La Opinion, a Southern California newspaper aimed at Latinos, that was critical of Cantors proposal. The piece nails the cruel hypocrisy of the GOP immigration plan: allow some kids to stay but deport their parents, Pfeiffer wrote.
Gowdys comments came at the end of an hours-long hearing and as he was thanking four witnesses for being constructive and professional. Heres the full quote:
When I see quotes like I did today from someone named Dan Pfeiffer, who apparently works for the president. I think it is the same Dan Pfeiffer that once said that the law is irrelevant. And he tweeted out today that our plan is to allow some kids to stay but to deport their parents. He summarized this entire debate with that tweet. So I want to compliment you and thank you for not being a demagogic, self-serving political hack who cant even be elected to a parent advisory committee, much less Congress, which is what Mr. Pfeiffer is. I want to thank you for not being that and understanding that these are complex issues where reasonable minds can perhaps differ.

Gowdy is smart, articulate, and fearless and one of the few in Congress who is driven by values rather than political expediency.
His border security committee is important, but think what we’d have if he rather than that weak-sister Issa were investigating Benghazi and the IRS scandals.
I HEART Trey Gowdy!!!
SC upstate, is that bit of paradise I’m aimin’ for.
It is nice to hear someone get down and dirty with the dirt bag rats. I hope he keeps it up. He might restore some semblance of faith in Republicans, which currently hovers somewhere between 0 and minus 1.
I like the cut of his jib
I wish Trey wouldn’t be so reticent and would just tell us what he really thinks of Pfeiffer. C’mon, Trey — let it out. :=)
Love our state and Trey Gowdy.
Cruz/Gowdy - I might be able to live with that :-)
He is a sneaky stealth K st bagman.
Last week , he actually stated who would pick the blueberries if we forced the illegals to go home !
Look it up , July 15 at NRO !
Howdy is pro amnesty !,,,,
HE IS TRYIMG TO FOOL US with these side shows !
They plan to use the kids to give parents citizenship!
It’s a scan set up by the K St lobbyists and Cantor !
Definitely....but not the cut of his hair - gives ya shudders to look at.
I HEART him too. Told my hubby I wanted TG to be my BF. lol.
I called his office in SC and get this, it wasn’t toll free.Talked to a sweet woman with a huge drawl. Asked her if TG was going to run against girlie LG. Said she hadn’t heard such.
You know Gowdy is a pro amnesty ?
He was varying about the poor blueberry pickets last week.
This whole sorry ass side show like this exchange are for the bubbas.
They want to suckers us into falling for this we are fighting the Dems while in the back room the K st folks already have the bill written up .
They want to pas a bill and then let the senate bill get rammed thru.
Are you pro amnesty like this traitor ?
Are you a amnesty troll ? You are
It figures !
Gowdy cried about how the poor blueberry packers needed to be legalized
Who was going to pick them.
