Because he now thinks John McCain is an al Qaeda supporter.
No, really. Watch away.
Gohmert Pyle later tried to nuance and expound on his nuttery somewhat. That's because he can't:
This isn’t the first time Gohmert has accused McCain of conspiring with al Qaeda. In May, he said McCain and President Obama were partly responsible for the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012. Four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, died in the attack.Hence the Gaddhafi reference in the video.
Of course, we here in Texas know that Gohmert is more batshit-crazy all around than Cruz is. He's just stuck with the big pile of crazies in the House, though, while Cruz has a high profile in the Senate.
That said, there's been speculation that John Cornyn, speaking of Texas senators, might get primaried. There's been, more hope from Democrats than speculation among both "major" parties, that Gohmert Pyle might be the person doing that.
I could hope, but doorknob, I'm afraid that he might actually win, no matter how much Corny n panders himself. And, not just win the primary, but win the general, as nutty as that seems.
