Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said he wore a tie with a Santa Claus pattern to the State of the Union address on Tuesday because President Obama would be acting like the fictional character in his speech.
“Well I thought, I can’t wear that. That’s Santa Claus,” Gohmert told conservative radio host Sean Hannity, his guest at the speech, describing the process of choosing a tie for the speech. “And then I realized, we’re going to be listening to Santa Claus tonight promising whatever anybody wants they can have.”
Unlike Santa Claus, Gohmert explained, Obama is rewarding parents by taking from their children.
“The trouble — and this is what breaks my heart — is he’s got the children paying for the gifts to the parents, and that’s not right,” he said.
