Stupidest Quote of the Week – June 12, 2021

“I was informed by the past director of NASA that they have found that the moon’s orbit is changing slightly and so has the Earth’s orbit around the sun.  Is there anything that the national Forest Service or [Bureau of Land Management] can do to change the course of the moon’s orbit or the Earth’s orbit around the sun?  Obviously, that would have profound effects on our climate.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert, to Jennifer Eberlien, associate deputy chief of the U.S. Forest Service, during a congressional hearing on climate change

Eberlien responded, “I would have to follow up with you on that one, Mr. Gohmert.”

Worst Quote of the Week – April 10, 2020

“It is being used in Germany as a mist.  Health care workers go through a misting tent going into the hospital and it kills the coronavirus completely dead not only right then, but any time in the next 14 days that the virus touches anything that’s been sprayed it is killed.”

– U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, (R-TX), claiming that German scientists had developed a powder that – mixed with water – will kill the COVID-19 virus on contact.

In response, Dr. Jörn Wegner, a spokesman for Deutsche Krankenhausgesellschaft, the German Hospital Association, stated, “What your congressman said is absolute nonsense.  There are no such tents and there’s no powder or magical cure.”

Gohmert continues to embarrass both my home state of Texas and the United States in general by spouting out such idiotic and ridiculous statements as this “misting” cure.  Why the people of his district continue to let Gohmert stay in office is mind-boggling.  Then again, if you knew East Texas, like I do, you’d understand – somewhat.

Quote of the Day

“You follow me around the world.  You see me hugging Muslims around the world, because the ones I hug are our friends.”

U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX, saying he does not make unfounded accusations against certain people because they are Muslim.

An evangelical Christian admitting he hugs Muslims?  Does his pastor know about this?
