verb phrase, sometimes used in present tense: 1. attempt to pass off thick-witted, far-right fringe lunacy as something to be taken seriously; usually done with a straight face and an air of outrage; can be delivered tongue in cheek, but more effective when performed by true believers.

2. action taken after inspiration from words and deeds of Louie Gohmert, Congressman from East Texas (2005-present)
He really pulled a gohmert when he proclaimed the dangers of communist members of the US Congress.

They pulled a gohmert with their letter accusing administration officials of membership in the Muslim Brotherhood.
