What one word can best describe Texas’ First Congressional District Rep. Louis Gohmert is …ummm…wait … it’s coming…no, not embarrassing. Hmmmm. Annoying? Yes, but….How about “clueless”?
Sure, he is…but the one word can encompass his actions, thought processes and overall image as a key political leader of his state and county is….
Whoa! GOT IT!
Clueless! No, no, no. It’s more than that.
Whew! Crapaduck! It just popped: Infantile.
The man is infantile in his choosing the main issues to promote, in embracing his oath as a member of Congress, in pursuing his duties in the House of Representatives, and in having an intelligent conversation.
In a serious House hearing this past week investigating claims the Department of Justice is politicizing its decisions in favor of the Republican slant on key issues, Gohmert repeatedly tried to distract a key witness by rhythmically taping, loudly, on his desk. The witness, an assistant attorney general, stopped his opening statement several times, obviously waiting for the tapping to cease or for the committee chair to call the session to order.
Citing there is no “rule” prohibiting tapping during testimony, Gohmert kept tapping. And tapping. And tapping.
It was not unlike the ADHD boy in the eighth grade who was bored or restless or irritate (or all three) and knocked a history book off his desk to disrupt the class 14 times before the teacher sent him to the office.
The First District congressman is like that boy, except he is a grown man, a lawyer, former judge, elected public official.
Gohmert, among the first GOPerbto line up when Trump requests a hi cheek hickey, deserves punishment for his infantile behavior; sending him back to his office is not an option.
How about sending him not to THE House, but to HIS house at the next election so the actions of the district’s elected House member are no longer embarrassing to his constituents?
