    George Lopez Bashes Congressman Claiming Terrorists Who "Act Like Hispanics" Are Threat to U.S.—Watch Now


    George Lopez isn't one to bite his tongue.

    So when asked what he'd like to say to Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert, who recently claimed terrorists are acting "like Hispanics" to gain access to the U.S., Lopez was blunt.

    "Louie Gohmert, you're f--king crazy, dude," he told Huffington Post Live. "You're crazy, man."

    The former late-night host said Gohmert's notion that terrorists "on the other side of the Mexican border" are "trained to come in [to the United States] and act like Hispanics when they're radical Islamists" is simply "ridiculous."

    "It's really another way to do what people have tried to do to make us the boogeymen—the Chupacabres—of political issues like this," Lopez said. "Make us the people to be afraid of."

    "We love this country," he added. "We're not going to blow it up."
