Lincoln Project co-founder attacks ‘America’s craziest and dumbest congressman’

Former Republican and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt unleashed an attack on who he deems the “craziest and dumbest congressman.”

Speaking to MSNBC’s Joy Reid on her new show “The ReidOut,” Schmidt described the danger of Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and his impact on the movement of “mask denial.”

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) begged Reid not to show Gohmert, who recently blamed wearing a mask for him catching COVID-19.

“Are you concerned in the Republican Party this sort of culture of know-nothingism that is setting in that will outlive Donald Trump?” asked Reid.

“Of course it will. The Republican Party is an empty and principle less organization. It’s an organized conspiracy to maintain political power for the purposes of self-interest,” Schmidt said. “I’m remiss, Joy, not congratulating you on the show, but as you were introducing the segment about Louie Gohmert, I could only think about you playing the David Attenborough role in a wildlife [documentary] — with a Gohmert picture representing America’s craziest and dumbest congressman. When I say he’s the craziest and dumbest congressman, I’m serious about that. He’s not competing in an era where there’s a lot of competition. In the era of crazy, this is like Ali, Forman, Frazier, Norton — the big heavyweights fighting each other. He’s got a lot of competition in this space.”

He explained that when one thinks of Louie Gohmert, they think about America’s crazy people and that there are a fair amount of dumb people in the United States.

“They’re well very well represented in the Congress by Louie Gohmert, who is a champion without parallel or peer when it comes to both banality, stupidity and just imbecility,” he closed.

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was facing an "inflection point" ahead of the first presidential debate.

The president will face off against Joe Biden for the first time Tuesday night, and the "Morning Joe" host said the stakes could hardly be higher for his re-election chances.

"Where we are is at an inflection point," Scarborough said. "Donald Trump is losing. His support over the past few days has been dropping, in some places precipitously enough so to concern his advisers. We showed you yesterday polls from two of the most important states, Wisconsin and Michigan. and in Wisconsin, down 10 points. He's losing support there. In Michigan, down eight points. These are must-win states for Donald Trump."

War hero. Veterans advocate. Family man.

It was an image years in the making. Brian Kolfage had lost three limbs in an Iraq bomb blast in 2004, making him the most badly wounded airman to survive the war. He had become a motivational speaker, was the subject of sympathetic news profiles and was even a guest at former President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address in 2012.

More recently, 38-year-old Kolfage had positioned himself as a border security visionary after raising $25 million to construct privately funded fences in an effort to help President Donald Trump keep undocumented immigrants from crossing the southern border.
