Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) on why the debt ceiling deadline is August 2:
And I can’t help but be a little bit cynical here. Because we find out the president has a big birthday bash scheduled for August the 3rd, celebrities flying in from all over. And lo and behold, August 2nd is the deadline for getting something done so he can have this massive, the biggest fundraising dinner in history for a birthday celebration. […] Isn’t that amazing? The timing of this?
The amazing thing is that he was the smartest sperm.
