Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona is mounting a serious challenge to Louis Gohmert for the title of the dumbest man in Congress. Discussing the appalling situation of the woman in Sudan being put to death for marrying a Christian on Tony Perkins’ radio show, Franks made this staggeringly stupid statement:
The Arizona Republican of course managed to blame President Obama for the situation, telling FRC president Tony Perkins that the administration isn’t helping the woman, who is married to a U.S. citizen.
“I wonder if this administration would worry if Al Qaeda took Texas,” he said. “He might say it’s none of our business. It’s just really starting to be something that frightens me terribly and I think it is indicative of why this administration has been so soft on trying to protect religious freedom here.”
When Perkins joked that Al Qaeda would have a tough time “taking Texas,” Franks responded that Texans “might not get much help from the federal government, from this administration anyway.”
Really, Trent? It frightens you terribly that Obama might just let Al Qaeda take over Texas? You might want to stop listening to the voices in your head. They’re clearly morons. Your move, Gohmert.
