Of all the House Republicans who are dummies, idiots, wackos, conspiracy theorists, or otherwise lacking, Louie Gohmert might just be the worst of the lot. Sure, he has plenty of strong competition – but every now and then he steps up and reminds us just what he’s capable of.
Take, for instance, Gohmert’s recent appearance on an extremist propaganda outlet:
Rep. Louie Gohmert warned OAN viewers about the "hundreds and thousands" of "Flamers," aka birds who survive windmills but wind up spontaneously combusting after flying over solar farms in the Southwest US. This is how the green new deal will bring the nation down. pic.twitter.com/FYaw8ivElT

Mediaite says that there might actually be some underlying truth to what Gohmert is trying to say in this video. But that doesn’t change the fact that Gohmert sounds like he’s in legitimate need of professional help.
Gohmert is now foaming at the mouth in way that would have the Former Guy jealous. What’s scary is that there are people who actually voted for this guy, somewhere, and they’re apparently proud of this fact.
