"He’s not some moron like Louie Gohmert"

John Avlon asked about the Gohmert lawsuit and how seriously we should be taking this whole thing.

“I think the general answer is not very,” Nuzzi said with a laugh.

She added:

“I was talking to a Republican official a few minutes ago about Josh Hawley and what he’s doing and how establishment Republicans view what he’s doing right now. And this person said, I’m quoting, ‘He’s not some moron like Louie Gohmert.’ And the reason why people are being harsher in how they’re assessing what Josh Hawley is doing is because it seems so much more cynical, whereas in Washington, at least among establishment Republicans, Louie Gohmert has always been viewed and continues to be viewed as pretty much a joke.”
