Gohmert: Recall McCain and Let Him, Country Heal

(Fox News' "Fox and Friends")

Sen. John McCain should be recalled in order to help him heal from his brain cancer and the country heal from Obamacare, Rep. Louie Gohmert said Monday.

"Nothing inhibits recovery from cancer like stress," the Texas Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "I think Arizona could help him and us. Recall him. Let him, you know, fight successfully this terrible cancer, and let's get somebody in here that will keep the word he gave last year."

On Friday, McCain announced, through a statement that he could not "in good conscience" vote for the healthcare reform bill proposed by his "dear friends" Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La. His no vote on the Senate's last repeal effort helped to kill that bill, and his decision now puts Graham-Cassidy in danger.

Gohmert asserted on Monday that had McCain last year said how he's planned to vote, he would have been defeated in his re-election bid by Kelli Ward or even Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, and reiterated his call to remove McCain from office.

"I think America could help him and us," Gohmert said. "Recall him. Let him you know, fight successfully this terrible cancer, and let's get somebody in here that will keep the world he gave last year."

McCain said the reason for his decision on Graham-Cassidy is because he wants any measure that is passed to undergo more discussion, so it can be a bipartisan issue. Gohmert, however, believes that while there's nothing wrong with that idea, "the Democrats will not allow any repeal of anything in Obamacare to be bipartisan."

"They really put the pressure on their people," Gohmert said. "We are not the ones keeping it from being bipartisan."

Gohmert said he's making his call about McCain because people in Texas are hurting from Obamacare.

"I was down in Lufkin at the forest fair," he said. "All over East Texas. People are hurting. And there are people who have diseases and they lost their doctor, and they're begging, please, you've got to repeal. You got to give me some help.'"

Others are saying they lost their jobs because of Obamacare, he added. 

"So, there are people that have cancer, that have heart problems, just like John McCain, and they need help and he is blocking them from getting the help that they need," said Gohmert.

On Monday, Gohmert also discussed President Donald Trump's call for new restrictions for travelers, calling them "great.

"They are very well-spoken and articulate the reasons why they designated the eight countries," he said. "You always hear that we will vet the refugees, but you have got to understand we don't have any information from that country . . . I think the president is doing exactly what he should be doing. He is protecting Americans because we don't know who these people are."
