Dem Rep: Gohmert Went To Gym After COVID+ Test

Via press release from Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier:

Congressman Gohmert’s behavior is not only irresponsible, it’s dangerous and reckless. He berated his staff for wearing masks and not wanting to be equally reckless. He tested positive the day after he sat in a committee hearing without wearing a mask, endangering others.

Even worse, after he knew he had the virus, he called his staff and interns into the office to inform them, went to the member’s gym, and then proceeded to sleep in his office-his makeshift home in DC, before informing the public that he tested positive.

Which begs the question, where is he going to quarantine? In the same office and building with members, staffers, and congressional employees and U.S. Capitol Police? It’s beyond comprehension that anyone would act in this way, let alone a member of Congress.

  1. I probably shouldn’t say it, but … what else would you expect from a Republican? It’s been demonstrated on more than one occasion that their brain cells are defective.

    • Hello Nan. It reminds me of Paul Ryan and him going swimming in the members pool after he suspected he had it. Either they do not care about their fellows or they really think it is a hoax that can not happen to them. But even they have to see how it is true and dangerous. Plus most of them are older and have issues. I see some of the Republican house members are defying Pelosi’s mask order. Yesterday she announced the capital police are willing to enforce it. So get ready for drama and theatrics when the howler monkeys push the point and get removed. I fully expect Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz to be among the first. Hugs

      • Not to wish bad on anyone, but perhaps if the virus were to really hit some members of congress (like hospitalization … borderline dying), then MAYBE the others would finally admit there’s something more to it than “a virus.” But then again … the mental acuity of some of these people makes one wonder if they would even make the connection!

        • Hello Nan. I was just reading that this situation has many in congress calling for rapid time testing of all members, maybe daily. Yet the rest of us who do manage to get a covid test have to wait up to 14 days, making the test useless. The White house uses a 15 minute result test. Hugs

          • But of course! We have to look out for our “esteemed” and “important” congresspeople. Very important for THEM to stay healthy. I mean, they do so MUCH for us peons … how would we manage without them?
