Louie Gohmert on coronavirus and masks during an event at the White House on May 8.
Here at Crooks and Liars, we NEVER wish sickness or death on anyone. And we certainly hope Louie Gohmert, who tested positive for COVID 19, has a speedy recovery. We also hope his congressional colleagues were, UNLIKE LOUIE, wearing a mask around him. Because contagion.
We need to keep in mind that while a mask protects you somewhat, it is mainly to protect others. So Gohmert’s recklessness endangered many of his colleagues and a large number of staff on Capitol Hill. Despicable.

It would be wrong to laugh at @replouiegohmert over this, right?
The idiot has been walking around the halls of Congress and attending a meeting w/out wearing a mask and, therefore, putting others at risk. Idiot. https://t.co/I0i3ybTkC4

GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert, Who Refused to Wear a Mask, Now Has Coronavirus
The Texas lawmaker has refused to wear a mask in the Capitol, insisting that he would wear one if he tested positive.
How many people did he infect before he got the test results?https://t.co/P8buInHs8G

If @replouiegohmert hadn’t been scheduled to fly on Air Force One today, he would still be walking around Congress as a COVID-19 carrier… without a mask on.
He should be censured. Indeed, he should be kicked out of the House.

Did Louie get a COVID test in preparation for his flight with the so-called president? Too bad that precaution wasn’t available for Gohmert’s colleagues and staff.
And we wish there was a vaccine for the crazy that is Louie Gohmert.
