Bad enough that America’s Dumbest Congressman™ exposed his Congressional colleagues, and his staff, to the coronavirus AFTER he knew he had tested positive. It turns out he also exposed AG Barr as well:
Rep. Gohmert, who was without a mask, stood outside the men’s bathroom where Barr went before he walked into the “hearing” room. Once out, Gohmert approached the AG and exchanged a comment or two.Would say from memory, they were within arms length. [twitter.com/Olivia_Beavers/status/1288478557140910086
On the video (which I can’t embed, it seems) it can be seen that the two men emerged from the men’s room close to each other, neither wearing a mask. There’s no way of knowing how close or how long they were together inside the room.
Gohmert attended Tuesday's blockbuster House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr in person, where lawmakers were seated at some distance from one another.
But footage from before the hearing shows Gohmert and Barr walking together in close contact, with neither wearing a mask.
Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said Barr will be tested for coronavirus on Wednesday.
Did Barr go up to the White House after his testimony to brief Trump? Or to get his pat on the back from the Malignant Mangoface for his latest attack on democracy? Is Trump hiding under the bed in his bunker for fear Barr gave him the coronavirus? Inquiring minds want to know.
