Yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert joined the chorus of Republicans and Democrats who are criticizing Gov. Chris Christie for his decision to schedule a special election to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg in October of this year. The congressman and Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg speculated that Christie wouldn’t appoint a Republican to the seat (the governor has not made an announcement yet) because it would ruin his “bromance” with President Obama.
“Think about it, if he had just up and appointed a Republican replacement as he’s authorized to do, do you think the bromance will continue? Do you think the President will come let him win little toys for him and stuffed animals for him down at the fair?” Gohmert joked, “Do you think he would ever get another hug out on the beach from the President?”
