Louis Gohmert is letting words out of his mouth.

This guy is talking the way words go through my head as I’m falling asleep.

The Texas Republican argued that the amendment was more about protecting wildlife than minorities and other groups.

“There is nobody in this chamber who is more appreciative than I am for the gentleman from Tennessee and my friend from Michigan standing up for the rights of race, religion, national religion of the Delta Smelt, the snail darter, various lizards, the lesser prairie chicken, the greater sage grouse and so many other insects who would want someone standing for their religion, their race, their national origin and I think that’s wonderful,” Gohmert quipped.

He added that the original Republican bill would actually “protect interests” of minorities because it provided for greater transparency.

“It will not allow for some conservative or radical right-wing administration or group in the fish and wildlife to cut a deal with some right-wing radical group and we never know about it so nobody can intervene and stop it,” Gohmert insisted. “So you don’t have some group that is directly aligned with somebody in the administration at that point coming together, cutting a sweetheart deal between themselves, to the determent of the race, religion and national [origin?] of snail darters and other animals and fish and wildlife.”

But…what? Is your brain scrambled? I don’t even know what exactly the message is you’re trying to get across. Did you forget your meds? It’s not fair to people with cognitive impairments or mental illness to lump Gohmert in with them, but I think a neurological disturbance would go a long way in explaining his speech patterns.
