Republican congressman from Texas Louie Gohmert said Monday that he believes Arizona should recall Sen. John McCain over his position on health care and his battle with cancer.

Gohmert suggested on Fox News that a recall of McCain would be a win-win situation for both McCain and those who support repeal and replace of Obamacare.

“If he had said last year what he was gonna do, Kelli Ward woulda beat him and Kirkpatrick woulda beat him,” Gohmert began, “but you know nothing inhibits recovery and I think Arizona can help him and us recall him, you know, fight successfully this terrible cancer.”

Fox host Steve Doocy seemed caught off guard by Rep. Gohmert’s assertion, asking again, “what are you suggesting–that he be recalled?”

“Yeah, I think it would be very helpful to him and the country,” Gohmert said, doubling down. “He’s got cancer, it’s a tough battle, but stress is a real inhibitor toward getting over cancer…let Arizona recall him so we can get somebody who will keep his word from last year.”
