Wanda Sykes on government contracting
"Basically, I shopped all day. Just bought things," she told King.
"What did you procure?" the CNN host asked.
"Anything from, like, office furniture to, like, you know, intel equipment," she said.
She's right -- procurement officers essentially buy things for their federal agencies. If only we could call procurement folks "buying officers" or "personal agency shoppers."
"What do they do at the NSA?" King asked later.
"Basically, they collect intelligence. Yeah. They didn't get much from me," Sykes said.
King concluded this round of questions by declaring that the title procurement specialist "sounds raunchy."
"Raunchy? I wasn't buying hookers," Sykes said.
"I don't know what you procure," King said.
And you wonder why it's time for King to go?
