Louie Gohmert is Now Suggesting Wearing a Mask Gave Him Coronavirus
Louis Gohmert is the dumbest man in Congress and has been for over a decade. We could spend days recounting some of the stupid things he’s said and done over the years, but we have too much from just this morning. So we need to just dive in.
After spending weeks telling anyone who would listen – including the media and fellow politicians – that masks are useless, or worse, and walking around the capital without a mask, Louis Gohmert – as you likely know – tested positive this morning after taking the Abbott test in order to get on Air Force One. So close.
So, upon learning that he was positive for COVID, what did moron Louis Gohmert do? Well, he went back to the office, of course. He couldn’t go to Texas, so go back to work.
And he didn’t just go back to the office. No, he did it “Gohmert Style:”
HE BROUGHT HIS STAFF INTO A ROOM WITH HIM TO TELL THEM ALL HE HAS COVID AYFKM?

Oh, yes, he did.
This is the same staff that has had to put their lives on the line for him for quite some time. They needed to set an example as to how to really get the economy going again, according to Gohmert:

That isn’t funny, but it is typically Louis Gohmert, not only willing to put his life on the line but also everyone else’s.
Additionally, Gohmert attended yesterday’s Bill Barr hearing, in which there was a great deal of yelling. However, people were smart enough to sit quite a distance apart from each other, and a long way from Gohmert – which isn’t necessarily because of COVID, but beneficial anyway.
And now the ultimate in Gohmert stupidity. Gohmert didn’t get religion upon hearing he got COVID and say masks might have helped. Actually, he did get religion, just the wrong one. Gohmert blames masks for getting COVID – yes, he does.
GOP @RepLouieGohmert, who just tested positive for COVID-19 tells a reporter he blames wearing a mask for his result: "I can't help but think that if I hadn't been wearing a mask so much in the last 10 days or so, I really wonder if I would have gotten it." pic.twitter.com/S6l2xU2oiL

At least he seems to be alone during the interview and not berating a staffer, yelling, without a mask, feet away. But he does appear to still be in the office.
We did say dumbest, right?
