Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 08, 2022

Chris Cillizza: Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert was trying to make the point that the scales of justice are tilted against Republicans these days. He did it in the worst possible way. "If you're a Republican, you can't even lie to Congress or lie to an FBI agent or they're coming after you," Gohmert said in a Friday interview on NewsMax. "They're going to bury you, they're going to put you in the DC jail and terrorize and torture you and not live up to the Constitution there."

Wrong, Louie.
You can lie.
Just not as easily as you're used to lying.

I thought Trumpers loved seeing "these thugs" locked up.

"when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon " you just see them thrown in, rough " I said, please don't be too nice. (Laughter.)

Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over?

Like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody don't hit their head. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?"

(Laughter and applause.)

Poor Gohmert, he used to proudly wear the crown as the stupidest person in Congress. "Gohmert" literally used to be a metaphor for stupid, but he's been passed up by Bobert and Margie Trailer Grease, and of course Matty pay for my underage teenage prositutes with Venmo Gaetz. So old Gohmert, in an effort to regain his status in the GQP makes this absurd statement. I gotta say Louie, your Asparagus ain't nothing next to the QAnon darlings Bobert and Trailer Grease.

Relax Louis. You can still lie to your wife and the American People all you want.

Margie Trailer Grease

I prefer to use MTGazpacho. Because "Gazpacho police" is still one of the funnier things I've heard in a while. It was truly a culinary crime. I'm not yet sure if they are with or against Anti-Pho.

But back to wannabe Slick Louie, he seems to suggest that lying is just part of being a Republican. He just doesn't do it well enough. Did he not attend Trump University?

More funny ----. I wish I could remember the comic's name, I saw a comedy show where the comic's schtick was just reading that day's local newspaper and making comments on the stories. He said why waste time writing a routine when all the comedy you need comes out of politician's mouths every day. He was pretty good.

No, but very much that style. I don't even know if I'd recognize the name.
