If you were searching the landscape of the American political terrain for someone as batshit crazy as Donald Trump clearly is, you need look no further than Texas Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert, who is now claiming that Trump’s bragging about sexually assaulting women is all Bill Clinton’s fault. But all is forgiven, Gohmert assures us, because Jesus has forgiven the Donald for being a pervert.
Appearing on Fox and Friends earlier this morning, the perpetually moronic Gohmert said:
“Trump has said some things that are very vile back when he was supporting people like Bill Clinton. But if you’re Bill Clinton’s big buddy like he was at one time, you’re going to talk like Bill Clinton. And I think we need to forgive him for talking like big Democrats like Clinton and other foul mouthed people.”
What Gohmert neglected to mention is that there’s not any video or audiotape of former President Clinton every saying that he enjoyed grabbing helpless women “by the pussy.”
Gohmert then assured the Fox faithful that all was cool because Trump is forgiven for his sins:
“Now he’s a Republican. [Pastor] James Dobson tells me he’s become a Christian. And so, look, we forgive him for the past because he’s asked for it.
“We need to get on board. It’s all-in or it’s nothing.”
A Christian?! Donald Trump is a Christian?! This very same Donald Trump has said that he’s never asked God for forgiveness for anything he’s done and cannot name his favorite Bible verse, is a Christian? That’s a good one!
Nice try, Louie, but you and Donald deserve each other because you’re both too ignorant and too full of yourselves to even realize the full import of just how serious sexual assault is.
