Chatting with Fox News pundit Sean Hannity, whom Gohmert had invited as his guest to the State of the Union address, the Texas Republican said he wore a Santa Claus tie to the speech because “we’re going to be listening to Santa Claus tonight promising whatever anybody wants they can have.”Silly Mr. Gohmert, he has forgotten that Sean Hannity's network has been very vocal in making sure all the children know that Santa is a white guy. But forget the Santa reference, what kind of nitwit comes up with "cable television blowhard" for their State of the Union guest? That's the most creative you can get? At least the Duck Dynasty congressman was claiming the man as a "constituent."
Gohmert is fresh off a tour where he complained that the poorest of the do not pay enough taxes.
“What if you’re so poor that the only money you have is what the government gives you? I wondered, isn’t that wasting money, you give it and you take it back?” Gohmert pondered. “No that gives you an investment in the country and we need that.”This has been your periodic update as to the whereabouts and public thoughts of Louie Gohmert, America's Dumbest Congressman. Join us next time, when Mr. Gohmert will attempt to extricate his hand from an unruly vending machine.
