Louie Gohmert Compares Barack Obama to Santa Claus with State of the Union Outfit
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) told Breitbart News he wore a Santa Claus tie to the State of the Union speech from President Barack Obama Tuesday evening because he considers Obama like Santa Claus.
“When I was looking for a tie this morning, I liked the red of the tie and then went ‘oh no, it’s Santa Claus,’” Gohmert said in the hall outside the House chamber. “But then I realized I’m going to hear Santa Claus speak tonight and he’s going to promise everybody everything they want — the only difference is this Santa Claus makes the children pay for the parents’ gifts.”
In his State of the Union address, Obama proposed extending unemployment benefits and urged Congress to "give America a raise."
