Just when you thought you had seen it all, wokeness broke new ground in crazy town on Sunday. The 117th Congress opened with a prayer, delivered by Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), that concluded with the words "amen and awoman."
Political commentator Ben Shapiro aptly described the moment as some of the "dumbest s***" he's ever seen in his life, which is saying quite a lot since Ben used to live in California.
"Amen" is a Biblical Hebrew word: ???. It is a word simply meaning "may it be so." It has nothing to do with the word "man" or "woman" because it is FROM HEBREW. This is some of the dumbest s*** I have ever seen in my life. https://t.co/O4JhcHwywv— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) January 4, 2021
The congressional nonsense comes after Nancy Pelosi and her group of crazy Democrats rewrote House rules to ban gendered words such as "mother" and "father." Never mind that Pelosi refers to herself as a "mother" and "grandmother" in her own Twitter bio.

Nancy's appeal to the far-left wing of her narrow majority came as the speaker needed every vote she could muster in the House of Representatives to hold on to her gavel. Pelosi squeaked out a narrow victory on Sunday, winning support from the entire Squad of progressive House members as well as one Democratic representative who just tested positive for COVID-19.
The vote for the speaker had to be cast in person, and despite the CDC's recommendation of a minimum 10-day quarantine following a positive COVID-19 test, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) traveled to the U.S. Capitol just six days after testing positive. She has not since tested negative.
With any luck, GOP Sens. Perdue and Loeffler will win their runoff races on Tuesday, and the only crazy thing House Democrats will be able to do is call each other "they" and end prayers with "awoman."
