Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) declared on Thursday that Center for Disease Control (CDC) Director Tom Frieden was in charge of “the Democrats’ war on women nurses.”
Speaking on Glenn Beck’s radio program, Gohmert — who represents Texas, where one Ebola patient has died and two nurses have been infected — said he was “okay, but do any of us really know for sure.”
“If the CDC says you’re not okay then you’re okay in my book,” Beck quipped.
“You know, it’s a shame that the CDC head, Frieden, is apparently the commander of the Democrats’ new war on women nurses,” Gohmert opined. “Because, goodnight, they set them up, and then they throw them under the bus.”
“The idiot comes out and says that clearly she had violated protocol,” the Texas congressman continued. “At least in football, they have to tell you what you violated.”
