Feud rages on: Gohmert strikes back at McCain for ‘no intelligence’ remark

The feud between U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert and U.S. Sen. John McCain is alive and well – and on Thursday, it was Gohmert’s turn to take a jab at McCain.

McCain, R-Ariz., told NBC News in an interview Wednesday that Gohmert “had no intelligence.”

Gohmert, R-Texas, told The Daily Beast:

“Obviously, Senator McCain would be better off with ‘no intelligence’ since he does not know the Syrian opposition he met with is infested with al-Qaida and terrorist kidnappers. His ‘intelligence’ even caused him to support the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt that burned churches and killed Christians, as the senator stood against the will of the massive majority of Egyptians including moderate Muslims, Christians, and secularists who demanded the Muslim Brotherhood extremist persecutions must end.”

Gohmert started the controversy when he said at the Values Voter Summit that McCain supported al-Qaida.

McCain’s office dismissed the comment, but he couldn’t let an opportunity to respond, telling NBC News:

“Sometimes those are, comments like that are made out of malice, but if someone has no intelligence, I don’t view it as being a malicious statement. You can’t respond to that kind of thing.”
