Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert apologized for a comment that he made on Fox and Friends about Hillary Clinton’s health, but not for the reason you think.
What was wrong with the statement, he claims, is that he was “making fun of the mentally impaired, and that’s not right.”
In a statement, Gohmert said,
“We need to be praying for Hillary Clinton. There’s special needs there, there’s mental impairment.”
Gohmert is playing into the now many GOP Trump surrogates to play into rumors about Hillary Clinton’s failing health. All of the claims, however, are based off of bogus conspiracy theories centered around a concussion that Clinton once had. Conspiracy theories about Clinton’s health are, at the very least, ridiculous.
