Louie Gohmert Peddles Fresh Conspiracy
It seems that every time Tea Party congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) opens his mouth on television, something consistently dumb comes out. Saturday morning, Gohmert had some fresh conspiratorial banter about Susan Rice, because…
…who better to bring on to weigh in on our foreign policy than [Gohmert]?
After asking Gohmert about the recent trip to Egypt he took along with his cohorts Michele Bachmann and Steve King, Gohmert commenced to spouting one of the right’s favorite conspiracy theories they’ve been pushing for over the last year — that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama administration and are influencing their decisions on foreign policy.
Before ending the interview, Fox & Friends’ Clayton Morris asked Gohmert about President Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, and her recent comments to 60 Minutes that the United States is actively engaged in hot spots around the world both publicly and behind the scenes and here’s how Gohmert responded:
GOHMERT: I’ve been behind the scenes and she’s as wrong about this as she is, or she was about the attack from Benghazi being nothing but a protest about a video. She was wrong several times then and she’s wrong on this and I don’t know how in the world that person still is on the U.S. stage giving us lectures on television. It’s just incredible the administration even trots her out any more. I guess they’ve got to keep her close so she doesn’t spill the beans on what all she knows.
Cue laugh track! Better yet, make your own, because here’s the segment courtesy of Crooks & Liars:
