Hyde sent this tweet while Yovanovitch was testifying before Congress. Yes, after watching her careful testimony, my first reaction is that she was a "traitor" and a "yuge pos." Uh huh.

Like most Trump allies, he's projecting:

Seems he might be mentally ill, which makes you wonder why people like Giuliani and Trump were enabling him:

There's no question he spent a lot of time around the Cheeto:

And finally, inevitably, he donates enough money to Republicans that he can hang out with Trump Inc., but he doesn't pay his child support.
