George Lopez Reacts To GOP Rep. Gohmert’s ‘Terrorists Acting Hispanic’ Theory: ‘You Are F*cking Crazy’

When HuffPost Live’s Jacob Soboroff had George Lopez on his show this week, he asked the comedian to give his reaction to a particularly disturbing recent clip of Rep. Louie Gohmert suggesting that terrorist are being trained to “act Hispanic” in order to infiltrate the United States. Lopez had one, simple response: “You are fucking crazy, dude.”

Gohmert made his comments last month of C-Span’s Washington Journal. “We know Al Qaeda has camps with the drug cartels on the Mexican border,” the congressman from Texas said, and “we know that people are now being trained to come in and act like Hispanic, when they are radical Islamists.”

A distraught Lopez sighed and said, “Louie Gohmert, you’re fucking crazy, dude. You’re crazy, man.” To explain what Gohmert may have been thinking, Lopez said the idea that “acting Latino” would make it easier for a terrorist to enter the country is “ridiculous.”

“It’s really another way to do what people have tried to do,” he added, “to make us the boogie–the Chupacabres–of political issues like this, make us the people to be afraid of. We love this country, we’re not going to blow it up.”
