And now the Padishah Emperor of the Crazy People has fallen victim to the pandemic and everyone at that hearing, including Barr, needs to be tested and watched. Well played, Your Magnificence. https://t.co/hY1V8HlQvK— Charles P. Pierce (@CharlesPPierce) July 29, 2020
This was always the flaw in Louie Gohmert's "reasoning." When you refuse to wear a mask until you test positive, by the time you do test positive, the horses are out of the barn and the barn has burned down.
And yes, yes I do intend to run that metaphor right into the ground. Why do you ask?
But Gohmert is the gift that keeps on giving (and I still can't decide if East Texas, where I was reared as a young 'un, is trying to send their craziest to D.C. to keep 'em away from home, or if he's a product of a representative government. It's a close run thing.):
Louie Gohmert stunned office staffers by showing up in person to tell them he had COVID-19: report https://t.co/3cuF5XL2aE— Raw Story (@RawStory) July 29, 2020
They'd have been fine with getting that news over the phone; or even from the news reports, who probably reported it before Louie got to the office to scare everybody.
Louie Gohmert says he might have gotten COVID-19 from wearing a face mask https://t.co/QQ46ccau4L— Raw Story (@RawStory) July 29, 2020
Yes, Louie swore up and down he wouldn't wear a mask until he got sick. At least he's not attributing his condition to alien DNA and demon sperm. Well, not yet, anyway.
That picture, BTW, is Louie telling a TV camera crew how he got sick from a mask. And he's, again, maskless.
All hail "Typhoid Louie."
