Appearing on the American Family Association's radio program this week, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) mocked Commerce Secretary John Bryson's car accident, doubted that a seizure had caused the crash and suggested Bryson was not honorable or honest (video below).
Rep. Gohmert said: “These are not the kind of people that you want heading up the country. They’re not honorable, honest people... You got Bryson out in California. It’s really unusual to have a seizure cause you to have one wreck and then cause you to put your car in gear and keep going until you have another wreck."
Popular VideoPeople were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:
"That kind of seizure is really unusual, y’know…That’s who’s in charge of keeping businesses going... a guy that crashes his car from car to car."
Commerce Secretary Bryson will be taking a leave of absence in order to undergo medical tests to find out what caused him to suffer a seizure.
