Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert says that Hillary Clinton is "mentally impaired." Seriously?

Courtesy of CNN: 

Rep. Louie Gohmert dove fully into health conspiracies about Hillary Clinton on Friday, declaring the Democratic presidential nominee "mentally impaired" multiple times. 

The Texas Republican was speaking at the Value Voters Summit, an annual gathering of social conservatives in Washington. He was telling a story about not taking the easy route in Congress, when he quipped: "When you look at the kind of people running for president, no-brainers are a good thing now." 

But while that comment seemed to include Republican Donald Trump, he attacked Clinton's health exclusively.

"A true believer does what Jesus did ... you don't make fun of people who are impaired, have special needs, and whether you like her or not, Hillary Clinton's made clear, she is mentally impaired," Gohmert joked, to some laughter from the crowd.

Wow! It takes some kind of balls to insult the intelligence of a presidential candidate when you are still referring to the manual to tie your big boy shoes.

Here are just a few of the things that Gohmert has said in the past:

About the imminent repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell."

I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, you know, there’s nothing wrong with gays in the military. Look at the Greeks. Well, you know, they did have people come along who they loved that was the same sex and would give them massages before they went into battle. But you know what, it’s a different kind of fighting, it’s a different kind of war and if you’re sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle, then you’re not going to last very long. It’s guerrilla fighting. You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism and if that’s what you start doing in the military like the Greeks did … as people have said, ‘Louie, you have got to understand, you don’t even know your history.’ Oh yes I do. I know exactly. It’s not a good idea.

Yep that's the problem with gays in the military, all of those massages.

On  the possibility of no longer using the Alaska pipeline to pump oil.

So when [caribou] want to go on a date, they invite each other to head over to the pipeline. … So my real concern now [is] if oil stops running through the pipeline … do we need a study to see how adversely the caribou would be affected if that warm oil ever quit flowing?

Interfering with caribou procreation, that's why  we can never stop pumping Alaska crude through the pipeline.

Blaming the Aurora theater shooting on not enough Jesus.

You know what really gets me, as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and then some senseless crazy act of terror like this takes place. … We’ve threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God’s name, they’re going to be jailed … I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.

You know I don't remember him making the same argument after that Charleston church shooting.

So yeah, THIS is the guy suggesting that Hillary Clinton is "mentally impaired."

Well to be fair, he WOULD be an expert.

    Man who believes in Sky God says Clinton mentally impaired. Sure thing, Louie.

    The Republican men are getting desperate. They have to win! Donald owes all that money to Russia! They have to win! This time, they can't mess up! They feel if they lose this year again, the saga of the white man is at end. They don't see beyond that and Hillary stands in their way. They are like rabid beasts and nothing stands in their way. It's a scary thing to behold. Luckily they have been strengthening Hillary for the last thirty years for this battle. She is ready, and nothin' they say about her can sway them. I think of them as that Butcher Bill in Gangs of New York City, and she as Leonardo DeCaprio's character.

    Probably wasn't the best thing for Hillary to say about Trump supporters, but thank you very much, Louie! You just took it off her and put it back on the GOP-- where it's always been, and has always been true!

      8:48, Clinton is absolutely right, but I think it will cause more harm than good at this point. She needs to start winning more voters over. WE know she is right, but it just gives the opposition more fodder.

      In 2008, Obama referred to some people as "clinging to their guns and their Bibles." Although true, it caused a flurry on the internet. Like other attacks on him, it rolled off his back. Hillary has been attacked for decades. It will never stop no matter what she says and does. She has to let itroll off her back and continue on. Hopefully, not all Americans are as easily duped as Trump supporters.

    O those eyes boris >< At least now President Obama and Our New President, President Clinton, know WHO? Who the people are that are within the military complex, the law enforcement and certain areas of commerce and business that stand with unamerica global treasonist bullies. Don has his list of 88. And then the long long list compiled by the various agencies.

    There you go again Gryph, casting more aspersions on Loius's asparagus.

    1. Let me just say for the record that I have never seen Gohmert's asparagus, and I am certain that I don't want to.

    OT: "Denouncing school-based sex lessons for infringing upon parental rights" "coalesced around opposition to the 1994 International Conference on Population Development in Cairo, which endorsed “reproductive rights,” including access to contraception and sex education, for all human beings." P.S.THAT bitch is dead! Results>NOW THIS:
    "350 million women in the poorest countries did not want their last child, but did not have the means to prevent the pregnancy. If these women's needs were met, it would have a significant impact on global population trends. According to this reasoning, creating a sustainable population is as much about boosting women's rights as it is about reducing consumption of resources. 10 Billion by 2050..
    So if a world population of 11 billion is probably unsustainable, how many people, in theory, could Earth support?"

    Woman Power: RIP
    Asia Ramazan Antar, also known as the Kurdish Angelina Jolie, is believed to have died near Minbic, a town on the Syrian-Turkey border recently liberated from ISIS control, the Huffington Post reported.

    The death of Antar, 22, was announced via Facebook on the “We Want Freedom For Kurdistan” page. Many comments in remembrance of Antar described her as a hero and a martyr. Antar joined the all-female Women’s Protection Unit, Yekineyen Parastina Jin (YPJ) in 2014, where she has taken part in several campaigns against ISIS."

    Screwy Louie is getting desperate!! tRump is almost as deranged as Louie, and he is getting pummeled by a WOMAN!! The Christian gop is full of lunatics. I wonder what Mitch McConnell thought when Screwy Louie blabbers on about gays in the military. Mitch was only in service a matter of weeks, then there was "an incident in the showers" (naughty Mitch!) and he was discharged! No man should pick up the soap when Mitch is close by.

    Sounds like Louie has had one of those massages! It totally messed up his mind.

  20. Anonymous11:51 AM

    I grew up in a small town in E Texas, a college town, and it was different from the rest of the other little towns around because of all the academics there. So the heavy duty racism and other rancid opinions were not nearly as prevalent there. Many of my friends' fathers were professors and we were not raised to have that mindset. Gohmert is over that area and I find him repulsive, disgusting, idiotic etc. He should be run out on a rail. He is the moron with special needs. Louie, take a look in the mirror!

  21. Anonymous4:33 PM

    Is that the best you got, Louie? How about a one on one debate with the Madame President to be, you know, so people can judge for themselves who knows which end of the lollypop to start on, the one with the candy or the one with the stick? What a moron.
