Rep. Gohmert wonders if wearing a mask led to infection
This Repub. representative was flaunting his bare face all over Capitol Hill for some time, but finally broke down and put on a mask.
Irony of ironies: He caught COVID-19.
Gohmert has a different explanation, however--one that makes him look rather stupid!
"In a video message posted to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, [Rep. Louie] Gohmert said he “can’t help but wonder” if he contracted the virus from adjusting his mask with his hands to fit properly.
“It is interesting, and I don’t know about everybody, but when I have a mask on, I’m moving it to make it comfortable,” he said. “And I can’t help but wonder if that put some germs in the mask.”
Gohmert was tested at the White House early Wednesday before he was due to accompany President Trump on a trip to Texas. News of his positive test was first reported by Politico.

“I’m asymptomatic,” he continued. “I don’t have any of the symptoms that are listed as part of COVID-19. But apparently I have the Wuhan virus.”

He also disputed reports that he wasn’t wearing a mask at Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing.
“I’ve worn a mask more the last week or two than I have in the last whole four months,” Gohmert said. “And I was wearing my mask at the Judiciary hearing.”
But he was seen at various points during the hearing without a face covering, and on video walking behind Attorney General William Barr in the hall without one."
Hmm--makes him appear stupid AND a liar?
People like this are making the laws that govern our nation?
