    Congressman Louie Gohmert tests positive for coronavirus

    BY GRACE SEGERS, FIN GOMEZ

    Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert has tested positive for coronavirus. The Texas Republican has not been wearing a mask inside the U.S. Capitol, flouting safety guidelines.


    Gohmert was supposed to fly to Texas with President Trump on Wednesday, but tested positive for the virus during a pre-screening at the White House, several administration sources confirmed to CBS News. Politico first reported Gohmert's diagnosis.

    In an interview with NBC affiliate KETK-TV, Gohmert said that he had not exhibited any symptoms of coronavirus.

    "It's really ironic, because a lot of people have made a big deal of my not wearing a mask a whole lot, but in the last week or two I have worn a mask more" than he has in recent months, Gohmert said. He suggested that keeping a mask on "might have put some germs and some of the virus on the mask and breathed it in."

    "I don't know where it came from, but apparently I have it," Gohmert said. He added that he would quarantine at home for 10 days.

    Gohmert told CNN in June that he was not wearing a mask because he was frequently tested for the virus but said that if he contracted it "you'll never see me without a mask." Many members of Congress, mostly Republicans, have refused to wear a mask while in the Capitol.

    Oh NO!!!!! The World Is Coming to An End. One guy didn't make himself silly with an ineffective mask.

    Thanks for again pointing out how stupid the media is. The media idea of wearing of masks was to keep you from spreading coronavirus if you had it. But we are smart enough to remember that fact.

      He did not accuse the mask as ineffective. He accused the mask of giving him the COVID-19. He actually was never seen wearing a mask in public.

        His problem probably wasn't that he didn't wear a mask, so much as that he hung out with other people who didn't wear a mask.

        Similar to how Herman Cain hung out with people who weren't wearing masks, back when he was alive.

          It wouldn't be a news story for what he says of a mask. The reason they would have the news story is that it makes people think they are safe from the virus if they wear a mask.

            No, that is not the case, but you indeed have a vivid manipulative imagination to justify your agenda.

              . . . both distancing and masks go together. It only demonstrates that the Conservative bravado riduculing the COVID-19 Pandemic as 'just a common flu' and dangerously putting others and themselves at risk of death or severe illness by childishly rejecting normal protection and likely a misplaced feeling of importality like teenagers believe..

                  wow. that means most people are living just fine. But it is odd to be dying from this non-existent virus you named.

                    This should give you great joy, Shuny! Maybe all the conservatives will die off like the dinosaurs!
                    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                      Babies don't die as fast from abortion.

                      If you call yourself pro-life, you can't pretend this isn't worse.

                        . . . but not by COVID-19, maybe a liberal left wing meteorite.
