Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said Monday night that President Barack Obama had a poor understanding of the Constitutional despite teaching constitutional law at one of the most prestigious universities in the country.
Gohmert, along with Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), appeared on Fox News’ Hannity to discuss a recent court ruling that found Obama had violated the Constitution when making recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The three-judge panel said the Senate remained formally in session when Obama made the appointments during Christmas break.
“It is part of the Constitution,” Gohmert said. “I think one of the big legal ramifications that should come out of this is a class-action lawsuit by all of those who had him as a constitutional law instructor to get their money back. I think it would be a lay-down case for them.”
Obama was a professor of constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School before launching his political career.
“This guy does not respect the Constitution, he does not abide by the Constitution, and we’ve seen it repeatedly,” Gohmert added.
Blackburn also alleged the President didn’t respect the Constitution and tried to circumvent Congress.
