Sen.-John-McCain-R-AZ-NBC-NewsTexas Tea Party congressman Louie Gohmert’s outrageous utterances have been a nonstop source of mirth for political junkies. One of his most egregious oversteps was his claim last week that Sen. John McCain was an “al Qaeda supporter.” Last night, McCain addressed Gohmert’s clowning on NBC Nightly News.

“On that particular issue, sometimes comments like that are made out of malice,” McCain told Williams. “But if someone has no intelligence, I don’t view it as being a malicious statement. You can’t respond to that kind of thing.”

Gohmert made a thinly-veiled reference to McCain during an Oct. 11 appearance at the Value Voters Summit, mocking his trip to meet with rebel leaders in Syria by calling him, “a guy that’s been to Syria and supported Al Qaeda and the rebels.”
