Rep. Louie Gohmert: ‘Hillary Clinton Has Made Clear She Is Mentally Impaired’

Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas opened his remarks at the Values Voter Summit today by facetiously apologizing for having said that Hillary Clinton’s “brain is in a blender” because it is unchristian to mock those with “special needs.”

“You don’t make fun of people who are impaired, have special needs,” Gohmert said, “and whether you like her or not, Hillary Clinton has made clear she is mentally impaired and this is not somebody you should be making fun of.”

“We need to be praying for Hillary Clinton,” he continued. “There’s special needs there, there’s mental impairment … That was not a proper thing to say because, again, I’m making fun of the mentally impaired and that’s not right.”
