Video of the Week – June 26, 2020

As pathetic and delusional as he is colorful and right-wing, U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert made another spectacle of himself this week, as he tried to drown out critics of U.S. Attorney General William Barr during a hearing by repeatedly tapping his desk.

“If there are no rules about when people can talk, there’s no rules about when you can make noise,” Gohmert insisted after Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Georgia, asked the chairman to order the sergeant-at-arms to end the disruption by removing him.

Aside from his grammatical infraction and toddleresque antics, Gohmert is one reason why even many Texans avoid traveling to or through East Texas.

Best Quote of the Week – February 14, 2020

“I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”

– William Barr, U.S. Attorney General, in an interview with ABC News’ Pierre Thomas.

I feel it’s odd that Barr, a known Trump loyalist, suddenly seems to have turned on his boss – the borderline psychotic with a mob mentality who has been masquerading as president of the United States for 3 years.  I also don’t understand why Trump is allowed to maintain his Twitter account.  After Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 – without any question, I have to add – the Secret Service confiscated his Blackberry, as a matter of national cybersecurity.  And, in the current state of affairs, one of the biggest threats to our national security is Trump.
