WATCH: Paul Gosar Boasts That He Can Now “Cause Problems Everywhere” In Congress

It’s been months since Paul Gosar faced censure for violent imagery he posted on his social media. He’s still upset about it.

Though the tweet (featuring an anime clip edited to portray Gosar carrying out physical attacks on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and President Joe Biden) and subsequent censure were back in November, it’s currently drawing close to re-election time. With primaries only a few short months away, and half a dozen primary challengers for Gosar’s seat, he’s now assuring his constituents that he can still “cause problems” despite facing consequences for his violent tweet.

“Last time I looked, I don’t fly. I don’t have a lightsaber,” Gosar declared, complaining about the fact that the tweet was recognized as violent despite showing cartoon activity rather than live-action violence.

Still, he assured constituents that his punishment, removal from committees, which removes a lot of his Congressional power, is a good thing that gives him more freedom.

“But I will tell you, I look at things a little differently. So they took my two committees away. It liberated me! Now I can go to any of the committees! So if Nancy Pelosi thought she was hurting me, she actually liberated me to cause problems everywhere.”

Gosar is already under fire for courting the white nationalist vote, with even GOP leadership reportedly frustrated with his behavior. He and Marjorie Taylor Greene were both recently called out for their participation in a white nationalist conference, with leadership openly denouncing the affiliation.
