Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar Seconds Trump’s Motion to Kill the Constitution

Alex Constantine - December 8, 2022

Arizona's Paul Gosar, D.D.S. turns up in the headlines periodically -- when caught in the act of doing something unbelievably stupid.  Since 2018, he has promoted AZ anti-Semites, attended a conclave of neo-Nazis, and on more than one occasion, distributed rabid cant from a Holocaust-denying website. On November 17, 2021, he was censored by the House of Representatives for posting an anime clip that featured himself killing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In the approach to the midterms, he proposed a military blockade of Indian land to give Kari Lake an edge. But if there is still doubt "out there" that Gosar is a seditious, gaslighting fascist (and loudmouth schnook), his latest antic takes him out of the Nazi closet, and he has shut the door rather firmly behind. - AC

Far-right Rep. Paul Gosar deletes tweet endorsing Trump's call for the 'termination' of the Constitution

  • Far-right Rep. Paul Gosar deleted a tweet endorsing Trump's call to 'terminate' the Constitution.

  • "Unprecedented fraud requires unprecedented cure," he wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

  • Gosar spokesman Anthony Foti blamed "low IQ people" for being "unable to comprehend" the tweet.

Republican Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona, among the farthest-right lawmakers in Congress, endorsed on Wednesday former President Donald Trump's call to "terminate" the Constitution over false claims of a stolen 2020 election.

"I support and agree with the former President," Gosar wrote in a since-deleted tweet that included a screenshot of Trump's original post on Truth Social, his proprietary social media website. "Unprecedented fraud requires unprecedented cure."

As of 2pm on Wednesday, the congressman had deleted the tweet. In a statement to Insider, Gosar spokesman Anthony Foti suggested bad-faith actors and "low IQ people" had misread the tweet.

"No one in Congress has fought for Constitutional values more than Congressman Gosar. He is known as a strict constitutionalist for good reason. He has a decade of votes proving that," said Foti. "President Trump has reissued his statement to clarify what he meant. Those who claim either Trump or Congressman Gosar don't believe in the Constitution are acting in bad faith or are low IQ people unable to comprehend our language and our actions."

On Saturday, the former president said that the "Massive Fraud" of the 2020 election "allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution."

Since then, Trump has claimed that the notion he wants to terminate the Constitution is "DISINFORMATION & LIES," though the original post remains up and he has continued to argue that he should be installed as president.

Gosar, who swore an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution like every other member of Congress, was previously censured and removed from committees in the House after he tweeted an anime video depicting him killing Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

Since then, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has pledged to return Gosar to his committees when Republicans re-assume control of the chamber, musing at one point that he may even have better committee assignments next time.
