Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday that many members of Congress were too old and didn’t know enough about technology in the Mark Zuckerberg hearing this week.
“Did you watch any of the Zuckerberg testimony yesterday?” Limbaugh said.
“Were you at all amazed at how — I gotta be careful — I don’t want to be insulting here. I’m really not trying to be insulting. I wasn’t surprised. It was sad to see the relative ignorance of members of the House and Senate on tech matters. It was embarrassing in a couple occasions. The questions were literally embarrassing.” (RELATED: Rush: NFL Is Being Used As a Tool For An ‘Anti-American Agenda’)
“The realization that these people don’t have even a basic understanding of tech and what social media is and how it operates and what its purpose is. I think part of it is due to many of their ages.”
Sen. Dick Durbin asked Zuckerberg Tuesday whether he would share the hotel where he was staying to make a point about Facebook privacy. (RELATED: ‘The Name Of The Hotel You Stayed In Last Night?’ — Senator Goes After Zuckerberg Over Privacy Concerns)
