“In social cycles if somebody demanded to come to someone’s house, 'I demand an invitation to come lecture you in your house most people would say forget it,” Gohmert concluded, reflecting on the GOP’s hospitality.

Directly following that speech, the acting pro tempore, also a Republican, reminded all members “to refrain from engaging in personalities towards the president.”
