Louie Gohmert, the Jim Hoft of the US House of Representatives, has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Politico:
Rep. Louie Gohmert — a Texas Republican who has been walking around the Capitol without a mask — has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple sources.
Gohmert was scheduled to fly to Texas on Wednesday morning with President Donald Trump and tested positive in a pre-screen at the White House. The eighth-term Republican told CNN last month that he was not wearing a mask because he was being tested regularly for the coronavirus.
“[I]f I get it,” he told CNN in June, “you’ll never see me without a mask.”
Comments like that solidify the representative’s iron grip on the Dumbest Man in Congress title, despite spirited competition from offensive dullards like Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz.
I didn’t watch the Barr hearing yesterday, but wasn’t Gohmert doing his usual nasally shouty thing throughout? Anyone who was in a 15-foot radius of that goober better get themselves tested pronto.
