‘Is he kidding?’ Guess how long Elijah Cummings thinks future generations will be reading about today’s Cohen hearing
As you now know, Michael Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee today, and he delivered a closing statement that sounded as if it could have been written by a member of the anti-Trump Resistance (maybe it was). However, the chair of the Oversight Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, thinks it was a moment to be remembered… for a long time:
Cummings after Cohen hearing: Today was a very important day. I told my staff, 200 years from now, people will be talking about this moment..we have a situation where we have strayed so far away from normal in our country..I think today was at least an opportunity to do that

Maybe a bit of a stretch? Yeah, most likely:
Cummings should undertake serious counseling or stop using whatever he’s using ….

200 years? Is he kidding? It’ll be forgotten by next week.

So basically it depends on what your definition of “200 years” is.
