WASHINGTON, D.C. — It's the cough that just won't quit!

And now after hearing Hillary Clinton's coughing spells all week, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert claims Hillary is "mentally impaired?"

Clinton had the perfect comeback for her recent coughing spell in Cleveland. "Every time I think about Trump I get allergic!" she coughed to the cheering crowd.

The congressmen said he believe Hillary may have a nagging concussion from a past fall or something more sinister. The congressman made his stunning claim Friday at the Values Voter Summit

"Who knows? They won't tell us what's really going on with her," Gohmert said.

It sounds like a another vast right wing conspiracy theory, right?

"I'm not concerned about the conspiracy theories," Clinton said during an impromptu press gathering on her plane. "There are so many of them I've lost track already."

Gohmert said he's literally praying for Clinton after he made another outrageous comment earlier in the week saying, "Hillary's brain is in a blender."
