While speaking at the Values Voters Summit, Rep. [score]Louis Gohmert[/score], R-Texas, said that Democrat Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most evil person ever nominated for the White House by a major party, is “mentally impaired,” CNN reported.

According to CNN, he was telling a story about not taking the easy route in Congress and said: “When you look at the kind of people running for president, no-brainers are a good thing now.”

“A true believer does what Jesus did … you don’t make fun of people who are impaired, have special needs, and whether you like her or not, Hillary Clinton’s made clear, she is mentally impaired,” he added.

CNN (also known as the “Clinton News Network” with very good reason), accused Gohmert of engaging in “conspiracy theories” about Hillary’s health (despite all the evidence), adding:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“Maybe it was the concussion, the fall back when she did, or maybe who knows, they won’t tell us what really is going on with her, but if I were going to smash cell phones, BlackBerrys, I’d use a two-pound sledge,” he said, referring to a recent FBI report that said at least one of her phones as secretary of state was destroyed with a hammer. “Maybe someone got to whaling around, hit her again. We ought to be praying for Hillary Clinton. There’s special needs there — mental impairment.”

Gohmert noted that earlier in the week he had made a comment that “Hillary’s brain is in a blender,” generating headlines. He blamed a song that conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh used to play that included a similar line.

But Gohmert, joking about not joking, reiterated the point.

“That was not a proper thing to say, because again, I’m making fun of the mentally impaired and that’s not right,” he said.

Clinton — despite CNN’s efforts to provide cover — admitted she “short-circuited” when being questioned by the FBI on her email server.  This, she wants America to believe, is why she was unable to tell the truth about the issue.

So either she’s mentally unstable or a pathological liar.  Or both.

In any event, she has no business being anywhere near the White House.
