GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy Calls Rep. Gohmert ‘Congressman Covid,’ By Accident

House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, accidentally called Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert “Congressman COVID.” Apparently the slip of the tongue, or Freudian slip, happened after news broke Wednesday that Gohmert has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The Washington Examiner was the first to capture the slip up.

It immediately started off a avalanche of Twitter jokes and memes. Of course, testing positive for the deadly COVID virus shouldn’t be funny.

But I’m sure Gohmert, who I know to have a good sense of humor, had a good laugh.
