Louie Gohmert: Judges who support same-sex marriage need âbasic plumbing lessonsâ
Republican Reps. Louie Gohmert (TX), Steve King (IA) and Michele Bachmann (MN) teamed up at a Heritage panel on Wednesday to claim â among other things â that President Barack Obamaâs legacy would be âlawlessnessâ in the United States, that Obamacare was like Snapchap and judges who support same-sex marriage need âbasic plumbing lessons.â
At the 2014 Heritage Conversations with Conservatives event, the three lawmakers joined âfree market and liberty-minded members of Congressâ to take questions from bloggers, reporters and voters.
One questioner asked the participants to comment on a federal judgeâs ruling this week that an Oklahoma law banning same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.
Gohmert pointed out that some courts had found that there was no biological evidence that marriage should be limited to a man and a woman.
âThey need some basic plumbing lessons,â he said. âFor one omnipotent, omniscious, ubiquitous federal judge who is wise beyond his education to say â to make such a declaration about the law, I think, requires revisiting by each state and compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court.â
Bachmann asserted that refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on the grounds that it was unconstitutional was an âexample of the lawlessness of this president.â
âThe legacy of Barack Obama will be of the establishment of lawlessness in the United States,â she declared, adding that Obama and judges who struck down same-sex marriage bans were like Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, âwho all of the sudden declared that his edicts were not appealable to a court.â
Bachmann also blasted the presidentâs health care reform law as the âhealth care version of Snapchat. Itâs like, now you see it, now you donât.â
And the retiring Minnesota lawmaker said she knew exactly what Snapchat was because she used it every day.
âIâm on Snapchat,â she volunteered. âThatâs how I communicate with all my kids every day.â
During questions about immigration, King found time to discuss the presidentâs uncle, Onyango âOmarâ Obama, who was spared deportation back to Kenya after a DUI arrest.
âI think it would be very good for the American people to see drunken uncle Omar testify before the Judiciary Committee,â King opined. âAnd maybe even Auntie Onyango, who lived on welfare illegally in the United States for a good number of years as well. It looks like if youâre an Obama friend, youâre exempt from the law. And thatâs something this Congress should examine.â
