Gohmert’s twisted logic
Full Disclosure: I am a graduate of both T.C.U. and University of Texas Austin. When I attended these schools they were members of the old Southwest Conference, as was Texas A&M. The Aggies had a certain unenviable reputation amongst schools in the SW Conference. They were considered to be disagreeable rubes; you know, bumpkins.
That said, you will have heard that Representative Louie Gohmert, who represents Texas’s 1st Congressional District, has recently contracted the coronavirus. Louie, a notorious goober and a personal favorite of Trump, has long-eschewed wearing a face mask and vocally disputed the merits of wearing one. However, he recently succumbed to what I can only guess was a rare display of common sense or, perhaps, simply a decision made in the interests of self-preservation.
Whatever the basis of his reversal of past determination, Louie, aka, “Goober,” has tested positive for COVID-19.
However, Louie, never one to pass up an opportunity for spouting tortured logic and for displaying his penchant for gross stupidity, has stated that he contracted the virus because he was wearing a mask. That’s right, because he was wearing a mask! According to this logic, he would not have contracted the virus if he has stuck to his guns and persisted in refusing to wear a mask!
By the way, Louie is a graduate of Texas A&M. Ohh, and he’s a member of the Republick Party.
