At the intersection of arrogance and ignorance stands… Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.
How in the world does she keep getting re-elected?
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee(D-TX) has been a member of Congress since 1995. This is her 13th term in the House.
How is this possible?
She doesn’t even respect the people that she meets with. At a townhall event, she was talking on the phone while a cancer survivor was trying to ask her a question.
Remember her rambling, lengthy “question” she was asking Corey Lewandowski? It was showboating and grandstanding not actually asking a question.
After 5 minutes of ranting, Sheila Jackson Lee, finally finishes and Cory Lewandowski slams her:

Now, she’s got some really stiff competition for the title of “Dumbest Member of Congress” — The Squad, Hank “Guam Might Capsize” Johnson, Maxine “Impeach 45!” Waters, and of course, the Presidential candidate that wasn’t — Rep. Eric Swalwell.
Even the idiocy of all of them combined might not top this brief clip where Rep. Jackson Lee reveals her absolute ignorance on guns to the world.
In a single clip, she gets everything completely wrong.
She said that AR-15s are incredibly heavy and that they require .50 cal rounds.
Is she nuts?!
“I held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving. And the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.” – Rep. @JacksonLeeTX18 pic.twitter.com/U71ir6BHZH

Is she deliberately lying about guns or is she actually this dumb?
How can someone so ignorant about guns be making laws about guns?
