The 10 Worst Republican House Members In The 116th Congress

There are a total of 198 Republican members of the House of Representatives, and it is nearly impossible to know all, or most of them, in detail as to their statements and actions.

Some, however, stand out, based on their public record and news coverage, as the absolute worst, most disgraceful Republican Congressmen and women.

So here goes a list of the ten worst Republican House members in the 116th Congress, with the most notorious mentioned as the last named.

Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina

Congresswoman Virginia Foxx of North Carolina

Congressman at Large Greg Gianforte of Montana

Congressman Ken Buck of Colorado

Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida

Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida

Congressman Devin Nunes of California

Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio

Congressman Steve King of Iowa

Congressman Louie Gohmert of Texas

All of these ten members of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives are outrageous in their behavior, but the last five are the most controversial, and display massive amounts of arrogance, racism, misogyny, nativism, and in the case of Gohmert, pure stupidity and embarrassment!

The ones that have the most influence in the party are Nunes and Jordan, both slavishly loyal to Donald Trump.

Notice that five of the ten are from the South; two from the Midwest; and three from Western states.

Three of this group of horrible members of the House of Representatives will not be in the 117th Congress:

Greg Gianforte is the Republican nominee for Governor of Montana, which he lost once before, in 2016. Let all decent people hope he loses again and is retired from any public office!

Ted Yoho is retiring after four terms in the House of Representatives. He used foul language against Congresswoman Andrea Ocasio-Cortez a week ago, and should be condemned formally in the House of Representatives for his horrible sexist behavior, unlikely to occur, but good riddance that he is leaving at the end of 2020!

Steve King lost the primary in Iowa to run for reelection. King is a clear racist, nativist, and constantly an embarrassment, and was stripped of his committee memberships by Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, which shows how extreme he has become. One can be sure that Republicans are not disturbed that he was repudiated finally by his Congressional district voters!

These three Congressmen will not be missed, but one can be sure there will be other Republican Congressmen who are a disgrace to their party, who will join this list!

Finally, Louie Gohmert has become a controversy by arguing against wearing a mask, and now coming down with the Covid-19, and having expressed the belief that by wearing the mask now and then, that he might have caused himself to get the virus. He also has insisted that his staff stay in the office, endangering them and three interns. And he uses his office as his home, and now has been told he must find somewhere else to live and sleep. This man is someone who used to be an elected judge in Texas, and it makes one wonder how such a total embarrassment, disgrace, and moron as he is, ever made it to Congress!

When former Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was in Congress, Gohmert was often termed as the male Michele Bachmann!

It makes one wonder if those who vote characters like this into Congress have any brains in their head, not exactly a sign of the virtues of mass voting, sorry to say!

    Yes, D, and I consider Trump responsible for his death by holding that rally in Tulsa!

    Hopefully, mask deniers will learn from this, and stop being stupid! 🙁

    I hope his death causes them to take the virus more seriously, but I’m not counting on it.

    If a person is going to risk contracting COVID-19 based upon their own actions I cannot feel sorry for them if they suffer the consequences of their own choices.

    I hope he didn’t spread this very infectious contagion to others (those that did try to observe social distancing, wore masks, washed their hands and generally avoided situations like the Tulsa rally).

    Trump had condolences for Herman Cain, yet nothing for John Lewis.

    Pragmatic Progressive writes, “[United States President Donald] Trump had condolences for Herman Cain, yet nothing for John Lewis.”

    The following may explain:

    “I don’t see this President-Elect [Donald Trump] as a legitimate president. I think Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the [Election 2016] candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”
    —John Lewis, in a January 2017 appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press”

    It has nothing to do with Russians. Trump is mean, despicable, and hates that John Lewis was a better person than he is.

  7. Pragmatic Progressive July 31, 2020 9:04 am

    Totally second that, Leia. Trump and his cult deserve to be called deplorables.

  8. Former Republican July 31, 2020 11:59 am

    John Lewis is correct. The first half of the Mueller report tells how the Russian trolls used social media to divide people and sway them away from Hillary.

  9. Pragmatic Progressive July 31, 2020 4:59 pm

    Obama is how a president should be. He has the classy leadership that Trump is very sorely lacking.

  10. Princess Leia July 31, 2020 5:20 pm

    I’m currently lol’ing at the fake fans saying they’re going to unfollow Josh! They’re obviously Trumpanzee trolls!

    Pragmatic – Totally second that! 🙂
