The only 5 reactions you need to Andrew Marr calling out Priti Patel for laughing
On his Sunday morning political show, the BBC’s Andrew Marr read Home Secretary Priti Patel a list of businesses and organisations that are worried about the effects a no-deal Brexit would have on their workers, but felt the need to question why she was “laughing”. See for yourself.
Priti Patel smirking while Marr reads out horrific Brexit predictions is another low. To the point where Marr states: “I can’t see why you’re laughing.” If it was another politician, then perhaps the benefit of the doubt. But her record speaks for itself. pic.twitter.com/mLcaD5WvvE

“I can’t see why you are laughing.”
These commenters beautifully expressed the wider reaction to the bizarre exchange.
If you’re still deluded enough to believe this government cares about you, please behold this video of an interviewer having to pause his point about the economic turmoil their plans are likely to cause to tell a fucking cabinet minister to stop laughingpic.twitter.com/EaiIKA50o9

"I don't know what you're laughing for!"
Andrew Marr puts Priti Patel in her place as he breaks down the devastation Tory Brexit proposals would cause to British industry & she laughs. WTF is wrong with these Tory sociopaths? pic.twitter.com/3aBCyIbgGK

Why does Priti Patel always bear the look of a dastardly villain who's just about to smugly break the news that she's just received planning permission for your home to be demolished to make way for a Starbucks and had your family dog deported?

“Next week we’ll play “Try Not to Laugh Like A Tory” with Dominic Raab as we read out all the bombed hospitals and civilian areas in N. Syria as well as the number of dead Kurds. Join us then”

She's laughing because she is a sociopath. She doesn't give a crap. https://t.co/WlKqXyxCac

Political journalist Ian Dunt wasn’t convinced that the look was a laugh or even a smirk.
I don't actually think Patel is smirking for what it's worth. Think it's just an anxiety/stress response.

Still – we’ll be very surprised if there isn’t a priti Patel smirkwatch from now on.
