Congressman Louie Gohmert joins Lou Dobbs in search of an explanation for why Paul Ryan remains Speaker of the House, with Dobbs observing that he would expect every House Republican to have gotten a belly full of Paul Ryan by this point. Gohmert points out that the flaw in Dobb’s thinking that sets him apart from Congress is that he is actually thinking, something the governing body doesn’t do a lot of. [[WATCH VIDEO BELOW]]
Gohmert goes back to the 2016 election and comments made by Ryan, that President Trump heard things from the electorate that nobody else was hearing and relates having told Ryan at the time, “Some of us were saying the same thing.” Ryan shrugged it off as a superficial, empty attempt to patronize by offering a disingenuous compliment to the President-Elect.
Gohmert tried to get through to Ryan, responding, “But that’s the problem. You haven’t been listening to the people that got Trump elected. You didn’t support his idea of having a wall. You’ve supported some form of amnesty, legalization all along, and on a totally secure border you haven’t been there.” Gohmert asked for assurances at the time that Ryan would support what got Trump elected.
Instead he got a dose of RINO speak, the familiar word-parsing and equating of pointless noise with accomplishment. Ryan said, “Look Louie, we’re talking every day,” which Gohmert told Ryan at the time was not an answer to his question. He said he asked directly, “Are you going to help get the wall done, the no amnesty, all the…” Ryan continued inanely, “Look, we’re getting along great,” effectively a negative resonse and a position that has remained unchanged from almost two years ago.
Gohmert says, “I just keep going back to that because it appears that we had leadership that was never going to deliver for the President on this promises. He talks about the ongoing debate over amnesty that is, for reasons of blind servitude to Ryan’s pimps at the Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable and the Koch brothers, on the street corner in their diamond back Electra 225’s, with their flared pants, chains and floppy Superfly hats.
Gohmert says the conference seemed to be more of an effort to persuade people who were unable to support the absence of President Trump’s four pillars in the bill that they were wrong and needed to “get on board,” noting that a few of the members brought up the fact that they had already gotten 193 votes for the Goodlatte bill that had the enforcement first provisions included, why not just tweak that one?”
Dobbs tells Gohmert, “You know the answer to that,” naming the Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable and Koch brothers, Ryan’s owners, as having not allowed it. Gohmert does know, and tells Dobbs he’s right, saying, “When you’re right you’re right. They wanted the second bill.”
Dobbs asks if there is anyone that Paul Ryan won’t lie to and if there is any reason why “anyone in the Republican conference should tolerate him as Speaker for another minute?” Gohmert offers a backhanded compliment to Ryan on his progress as a deceptive word-parsing politician, noting his expertise at leaving an impression of standing with the President while failing to actually embrace his positions or to commit to their support.
Dobbs asks the perplexing question, “What is so urgent about getting DACA ‘dreamers’ citizenship right now?” Gohmert says it’s a mistake for them to address it now and that it would set up the biggest border surge in our history.
“And all of this nonsense of working with the Democrats,” asks Dobbs, “Why don’t the Republicans have the, I mean, if Ryan is sincere and an honest man, why doesn’t he tell his RINO members to just get out there and campaign for the midterms like hell, and go out there and as Ryan wants, call for wide-open borders and unconditional amnesty for illegal immigrants [invaders] and see how many survive a general election?”
