Every Tuesday, HOH gets to know a Member of Congress better through a series of five fun questions. This week, we chat with Rep. Thaddeus McCotter. The Michigan Republican is known for his quirky personality and love of music.
Q: Which team do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
A: Detroit Red Wings.
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone (aside from your family), who would it be and why?
A: Marcel Marceau. He has no mime for chitchat.
Q: What’s your favorite drink?
Q: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
A: “Swamp Shark.”
Q: Who’s your best friend in Congress?
A: When I get one, a dog. (HOH advises McCotter to chat with Sen. Roy Blunt.)
