Former football star Rep. Jason Chaffetz blames "thug tendencies" on newly diagnosed CTE
SALT LAKE CITY -- A Medicaid doctor has diagnosed U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) with severe CTE stemming from concussions the congressman sustained while playing football at Brigham Young University.
"He's finally getting the health care he deserves," said U.S. Senator John McCain. "Hopefully, socialized medicine will give Chaffetz his life back. I don't want to sound optimistic. But - if Chaffetz apologizes to President Hillary Rodham Clinton for the years he's spent viciously, fruitlessly, and wickedly persecuting her, he might just get his soul back!"
Allegations of mental instability, corruption and amoral opportunism have dogged Chaffetz since the congressman flatly refused to investigate Russia's attempt to swing the 2016 election in favor of the disgraced former reality TV star Donald Trump in his capacity as Chairman of the House Oversight Committee. Criticism mounted last month after the CIA released footage showing Russian President Vladimir Putin writing a $500,000,000 check made out to "Donald J. Trump, in care of Paul Manafort."
"We thought he might be a misogynist, racist, traitor to American values and the rule of law," said Rep. Elijah Cummings. "It turns out, he's just deeply wrong in the head!"
