Luis Gutierrez eating Skittles while questioning IRS Commissioner Koskinen on whether it's legal for a foundation to pay an individual or a corporation's debts with foundation money.
September 21, 2016

Honestly, there is not much I can say because this video is absolutely perfect. Rep. Luis Gutierrez used his 5 minutes today to multitask and cover a variety of issues, including:

Skittles
Refugees
Race
Religion
Acceptance
Donald Trump
IRS
Trump Foundation
$10,000 portrait
Golf scandal ($1M hole in one shot and the lawsuit following)
Trump litigation
Misappropriation of funds

Did I mention this all happened while he was (a) eating skittles and (b) questioning IRS Commissioner Koskinen on whether it's legal for a foundation to pay an individual or a corporation's debts with foundation money?

Take 5 minutes of your day to watch this video. It will make. your. day.

Updated:

The original post did not make clear the purpose of the hearing. Republicans called the hearing to impeach Commissioner Koskinen, which is why he did not answer that hypothetical directly. Also, the IRS usually doesn't answer those hypotheticals directly. You have to ask them for a letter ruling. - Karoli
