The 113th Congress has barely started, but that hasn’t stopped Republicans from already dishing out plenty of extreme, offensive, and out-of-touch comments. Here’s a roundup of the eight most extreme moments so far:
Impeach the president because he wants to reduce gun violence: Freshman Reps. Trey Radel (R-FL) and Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) along with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) all suggested that the president be impeached because of his efforts to reduce gun violence, particularly a set commonsense executive actions the president took. They also falsely claimed the president wants to ban guns or take away guns away from law-abiding gun owners. Finally, Stockman also recently compared the president to Saddam Hussein.
