GOHMERT! Religious Conservatives Laugh as Louie Says Hillary Is “Mentally Impaired”
The Texas Congressman who thinks “terror babies” are a threat to America’s existence, who got upset about the possibility of “gay space colonies,” and once claimed Obama sent soldiers to Africa so they could catch Ebola, bring it back to America, and infect us all, is in Washington DC speaking to the far right Values Voter Summit today, and he made one of his famous “jokes” about Hillary Clinton being “mentally impaired.”
The audience of “religious” conservatives thought this was hilarious, because nothing screams “piety” like making fun of a woman’s intelligence.
The tea party favorite from East Texas called the Democratic nominee for president “mentally impaired,” a line that drew approving laughter Friday at a gathering of religious conservatives.
“I’d like to elect a godly man, but we don’t have that choice,” Gohmert was heard telling attendees before he took the stage at the Values Voters Summit, an annual event hosted by the socially conservative Family Research Council.
Moments later, he was telling the half-filled ballroom: “You don’t make fun of people who are impaired, or special needs.”
It initially sounded like a scolding aimed at Trump, who publicly mocked a physically impaired journalist — footage now used in Clinton ads questioning his character and fitness for high office. Then came Gohmert’s punch line: “And whether you like her or not, Hillary Clinton has made clear she is mentally impaired. This is not somebody you should be making fun of.”
“We need to be praying for Hillary Clinton. There’s special needs there. There’s mental impairment,” Gohmert said.
Now that’s some high quality right wing humor.
