    The GOP is complete lunacy.

  2. I’d expect nothing less from the man who childishly interrupted a congressional hearing by loudly tapping on his microphone and whining and complaining about procedure, the entire time. The man has no maturity, intelligence, or impulse control. He should not be in any position wherein he has influence or power over others.

    • I’d be embarrassed if he was my representative

    • Stephen Henion | July 30, 2020 at 9:33 AM | Reply

      Yup, he really shows his colors.

    • Which GOP is full of integrity,intelligence and maturity.

    • One of my dreams for men such as Gohmert is that he will live long enough to see history written; that he will realize his part in it; and he will know that his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren have changed their family name out of pure shame.

  3. Do Republicans have to fail an IQ test before they can stand for election?

    Gohmert is the kind of man that would hide amongst the women & children in the life boat.

    • Patricia Perez | July 30, 2020 at 9:23 AM | Reply

      And not wear a life jacket because it might cause him to drown.

    • Facts

      Could see him tossing a woman or children off the boat to make room for himself. As for the mask, theoretically it is possible to get Covid even with wearing a mask, but that would by touching the front of the mask to like take the mask off, and then touching your face without properly washing
      your hands first. But, let me be clear in saying that it would NOT the fault not the mask, but the person who touched their face after touching a material that possibly has germs on it. Which is why when using reusable masks it is important wash them daily.

    • He’d more likely spread a lie that the lifeboat was made by liberals using aborted fetuses and government confiscated guns and was immoral and unsafe, and then get in it by himself.

    Vote him out. The taxpayer pays his salary. To blame the mask, while over the bodies keep piling up.

    The level of ignorance in our government is mind blowing. 🤯

    I had no idea that our “leaders” were so stupid.

  8. Janine Hudson | July 30, 2020 at 10:47 AM | Reply

    He refused to wear a mask, but now he’s blaming the mask.
    How do these idiots get themselves elected?!

  9. I’m saddened that someone like Louis Gohmert is running our country and making decisions for us

    Gohmert is not likable. He is deplorable. Nazis are not likable, their deeds, beliefs and actions are all that matter.

  11. The Republicans have no shortage of morons in Congress. So pathetic, yet horrifying.

    • Elizabeth Samuels | July 31, 2020 at 8:48 AM | Reply

      They fooled the ignorant people of their states. That’s what you get with just blindly going along. Research these people!

    • Ernest Austin | July 31, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      That is one of the requirements to run for office as a Republican, they have to pass a stupid test, and most of them are stupid enough to run for their party.

  14. This is one more reason the Country is in trouble, so many idiots don’t believe in SCIENCE.

      ​@Charlie Wyler …what makes you think he is an MD and/or any other Licensed Health Professional? He is CORRECT on some of his comments , but WRONG on other facts. See my response to him…from a (now retired) Licensed Dental Professional w/ 40 yrs of clinical & university practice experience…(5) USA State licenses and (3) country licenses…USA, AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND.. Cheers, 😷👍

      @Mimi M No, you could have voted Biden in to “restore decency” over the past 30 years.
      VOTE BIDEN, to get rid of Trump. Stay on topic. America is suffering from stage 4 cancer. The cure may not be pretty, might not even be perfect or prevent the death of the nation.
      But let us at least be honest. It is Trump that poses an existential threat to America. Biden may keep the patient alive until 2024 when hopefully the electorate will demand free and fair elections in the United States.
      Try it, I think you will like it. But in the meantime. Just keep breathing in and out. The rest of us might be smug about your situation, but where America goes, so goes the world.
      We need you as friend and ally. Come home to democracy America. We miss you.

    Can’t his staff sue him for endangering their lives just like sleeping with someone without contraceptive and having HIV Nd not telling them?

    • They keep showing up to work.

    • Rachael Perrin | July 30, 2020 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      If they are required to go to work, they need to report it for Contact Tracing. This is abysmal.

    • That’s why the Republicans are pushing for the lastest relief bill to include liability protection for employers whose employees get covid 19.

      @Patricia Aware of what that he had it? He didnt wear a mask when he went to tell them.

    • Christmas Lore | July 31, 2020 at 9:05 PM | Reply

      Oh don’t worry, cases will flourish and laws will be written, only a question of time.
      Don’t forget, we’re still at the beginning…wait till next fall/winter…..this is so far from over…

    Another entry for Colbert’s ‘stupid or evil’ segment. Hint- it’s both.

  19. You’re not born with stupidity, you learn it, are taught it, and many, like Gomert, embrace it.

    America has an idiocy epidemic and the president and his party are infected and spreading it. Putin loves it.
