Gohmert: McCain Is "Numb Nuts" Due To Criticism Of Bachmann

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) last appeared here a year ago, shown ranting at Anderson Cooper regarding a "terror baby plot." Gohmert is currently one of five Republicans backing Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-MN) baseless charge that Huma Abedin, Muslim-American aide to Secretary of State Clinton, is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood. Following the accusation, Abedin was threatened and is under police protection. On the Dennis Miller Show today, Gohmert called Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) "numb nuts" for his criticism of Bachmann on the Senate floor. According to Gohmert, McCain was "unalterably opposed" to the Muslim Brotherhood when "stuff" was "going on in Egypt"; his support for Abedin is proof that he is "okay with it now." Listen:

GOHMERT: Well, it’s obvious that John McCain didn’t even read the letter because of what he said in accusing Michele and us of making these horrible accusations. There were five letters and there were many things that are stated that are facts in each letter. And I wish some of these numb nuts would go out and read the letter before they make these horrible allegations about the horrible accusations we’re making. But we also know that John McCain himself had said back in the early stages of stuff going on in Egypt that he was, in his words, “unalterably opposed to helping the Muslim Brotherhood.” Well, obviously the unalterable person has been altered, so he is okay with it now.
