Congress's dumbest member is also its lamest photobomber.
"Are we talking about terrorist anchor-babies? No? I'll come back later."
Many people already know that Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) of Nagadoches, TX, is the House of Representatives' leading member on issues related to sounding like a dumb-dumb on camera. Among his dumber moments are the times he called for the repeal of the right of people to vote for Senators, the time he advocated for politicians to carry guns on the floor of Congress, the time he told a Christian pastor that he was wrong about Christianity during a House panel, the time he blamed the Boston bombings on Mexican Islamic terrorists, the time...well, just go look. There's a lot. But did you know that he's also very involved with looking like a dumb-dumb on camera?
That is not the face of a man who thinks he's being funny on camera. That is the face of a man who is legitimately clueless as to the mechanics of how cameras and television works. In fact, that's really the face of a meerkat who is very curious about what humans are doing with those big black boxes with glass on the end.
That's not even the first time he's done it this week.
Louie Gohmert, everyone. Living proof that if you give your kid a dumb name like Louie Gohmert, he will grow up into someone who acts like a Louie Gohmert.
