During a speech on the House floor on Wednesday as Democrats pushed to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time, Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert absolutely destroyed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by using her own quote against her.
Democrats clearly didn’t understand the fact that Gohmert was quoting Pelosi and immediately were sent in a frenzy as they accused the Republican representative of inciting violence. Ironically, the quote was Pelosi’s.
The quote came when Gohmert was comparing President Trump’s comments from last week with Pelosi’s comments a few years prior.
“Here’s a quote. ‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more — aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be,’” Gohmert started as he quoted Pelosi from 2018 when she was discussing the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Now the message is, if you have a whim and you want to just go after a president, just go straight to the floor. No investigation. No Judiciary Committee. Go straight to the floor. Use it as a political weapon, as you wish,” Gohmert said. “This is so dangerous, what you’re doing. Forgetting all the precedents. Yes, we can argue back and forth. But you’re using this as a weapon and you’re destroying this little experiment in self-government.”
Democrats were immediately sent into meltdown mode on Twitter, not realizing the irony in their anger. They thought Gohmert was telling Trump supporters to conduct more uprisings when he was actually quoting Pelosi who previously encouraged Democrats to conduct uprisings.
“Louie Gohmert is now trending on Twitter because liberals are taking his words out of context and acting like he wasn’t just reading quotes from prominent Democrats over the summer encouraging their supporters to riot,” noted conservative Caleb Hull. “Just incredible. Twitter will do nothing about it either.”
“Holy shit. Is Gohmer encouraging MORE “uprisings”??!? Did I hear that right??????????” said mentally challenged CNN analyst Asha Rangappa.
“”I don’t know why there aren’t more uprisings in this country. Maybe there will be,” GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert says while standing in the same building complex that came under attack exactly one week ago in a violent uprising that killed 5 people,” tweeted another mentally deranged liberal.
“Louie Gohmert suggests there could and maybe should be more uprisings around the country.”
