During a speech on the House floor Friday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) compared the surge of unaccompanied migrant children to soldiers invading France during World War II.
“It’s an invasion, and Obama should know, because if he had been around in the 40’s, he would have started WW II. And who’s to say he wasn’t?”
Gohmert asked Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) to “use whatever means” like troops, ships of war, or taxes. But the rep said that the best method would be to use nukes on the border.
“That way we can get the sumbitches where they live,” said Gohmert. “Then we could get big fans to blow the radiation back into Mexico, like the ones the liberals use to create climate change!”
Gohmert criticized President Obama’s request for Congress to provide $3.7 billion in emergency funds to aid the immigrants, saying that “the only thing that can stop a bad immigrant is a good immigrant, like Ted Cruz”.
“We see eye to eye on things,” said Gohmert. “Me and him, and Perry. And Perry is already down there with the best idea so far – shewt ’em.”
The GOP has issued a statement today denouncing the rep’s request for a “nucular deterrent”, saying that “Gohmert exceeds even our level of idiocy.”
