My Congressman is Louie Gohmert. You may remember him from that time he explained why we shouldn’t allow gay people into outer space.
As you may guess from this, and the fact that he’s from Texas, he’s a hardcore Republican. However, if there was any doubt, his support of Donald Trump demonstrates how loyal to the party he is.
Of course, the party itself is fractured by the Donald. Rep. Gohmert is on the “Never Hillary” side of the split. To defend his position, he recently published a statement explaining his support of Donald Trump
He starts with an attempt to excuse Trump’s “locker room talk:” “In his days as a Democrat funder and his friendship with Bill Clinton, Donald Trump’s language was extremely inappropriate, even though Barrack Obama can be seen on video using the same exact language. I knew Donald Trump had such a background, and anticipate there are more atrocious comments in his storied background to be revealed which the mainstream media has been waiting to publicize til October. That’s a reason I didn’t support him in the primary.
That’s right, it’s the media’s fault that Donald Trump is a horrible person! That makes total sense. It’s also women’s fault for being attractive and making Trump talk about them like that.
Trump did not sell his country to our enemies, unlike Hillary who has become enriched by, among other things, accommodating the sale of U.S. uranium to Russia. Russia is increasing their nuclear arsenal while ours is deteriorating, but got millions rather than the standard 30 pieces of silver.
30 pieces of silver? So America is Jesus?
Dr. James Dobson tells me Trump truly has become a Christian, though obviously with a lot to learn.
Hillary staunchly condemns those who follow Moses’ and Jesus’ teaching on marriage and will push even further than the Supreme Court already has until marriage becomes what it was “in the days of Noah” before the flood. That’s rather dangerous.
“20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. 21 The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though[g] every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.” – Genesis 8:21-22.
We all know gay people are the cause of hurricanes and earthquakes, but at least we don’t have to worry about global flooding!
If Hillary is elected, the Supreme Court decision declaring a Constitutional right for an American to own a gun in a 5 to 4 decision, will go the other way. So will many other cases that protected our religious and speech freedoms. Because of these facts, I do condemn Donald Trump’s past language, but will do everything I can legally and ethically to see he is elected as President instead of Hillary Clinton. If he is not elected, subpoenaing sermon notes as happened in Houston is a drop in the bucket to what is coming.”
For someone so adamant that the apocalypse is nigh, this election must be a dream/nightmare come true for Rep. Gohmert. If Trump wins, it’ll be the end of the world. If Clinton wins, it’ll be the end of the world. We’re literally damned if we do and damned if we don’t!
